Lyrics verse:
SOMEONE
THAT I BELONG TO
DOESN'T BELONG TO ME
SOMEONE
WHO CAN'T BE FAITHFUL
KNOWS THAT I HAVE TO BE.
WONDER IF I AM WRONG
TO GIVE HER MY LOYALTY.
WHY SHOULD I
BE A LONE SOUL?
WHY CAN'T I
OWN MY OWN SOUL?

Chorus:
ALONE FROM NIGHT TO NIGHT,
YOU'LL FIND ME,
TOO WEAK TO BREAK
THE CHAINS THAT BIND ME
I NEED NO SHACKLES
TO REMIND ME,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.
FOR ONE COMMAND
I STAND AND WAIT NOW,
FROM ONE WHO'S MASTER
OF MY FATE NOW,
I CAN'T ESCAPE,
FOR IT'S TOO LATE NOW,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.

WHAT'S THE GOOD OF MY CARING
IF SOMEONE IS SHARING
THOSE ARMS WITH ME?
ALTHOUGH SHE HAS ANOTHER,
I CAN'T HAVE ANOTHER,
FOR I'M NOT FREE.

SHE'S IN MY DREAMS,
AWAKE OR SLEEPING,
UPON MY KNEES
TO HER I'M CREEPING
MY VERY LIFE
IS IN HER KEEPING,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.

Lyrics I CAN'T FORGET THE NIGHT I MET YOU,
THAT'S ALL I'M THINKING OF
AND NOW YOU CALL IT MADNESS,
BUT I CALL IT LOVE.
YOU MADE A PROMISE TO BE FAITHFUL
BY ALL THE STARS ABOVE
AND NOW YOU CALL IT MADNESS,
I STILL CALL IT LOVE.

MY HEART IS BEATING,
IT KEEPS ON REPEATING,
FOR YOU CONSTANTLY.
YOU'RE ALL I'M NEEDING,
AND SO I'M PLEADING,
PLEASE COME BACK TO ME!

YOU MADE A PLAYTHING
OUT OF ROMANCE!
WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF LOVE?
THAT'S WHY YOU CALL IT MADNESS,
BUT I CALL IT LOVE.
