Lyrics YESTERDAY YOU CAME MY WAY
AND WHEN YOU SMILED AT ME,
IN MY HEART I FELT A THRILL.
YOU SEE,
THAT IT WAS LOVE AT SIGHT,
AND I WAS RIGHT
TO LOVE YOU AS I DO.
STILL I NEVER DREAMED
THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME TOO.

YOUR EYES OF BLUE
YOUR KISSES TOO,
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT THEY COULD DO,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.
YOU'RE TELLING EVERYONE I KNOW,
I'M ON YOUR MIND
EACH PLACE YOU GO,
THEY CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

I HAVE ALWAYS PLACED YOU
FAR ABOVE ME,
I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE
THAT YOU LOVE ME
AND AFTER ALL
IS SAID AND DONE,
TO THINK
THAT I'M THE LUCKY ONE,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

SKIES ARE GRAY,
I'M BLUE EACH DAY
WHEN YOU ARE NOT AROUND.
EV'RYTHING GOES WRONG,
MY DEAR, I'VE FOUND.
BUT WHEN YOU'RE BY MY SIDE,
I FILL WITH PRIDE
FOR I'M SO PROUD OF YOU,
IT ALL SEEMS TOO GOOD TO ME
TO ALL BE TRUE.

YOUR EYES OF BLUE
YOUR KISSES TOO,
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT THEY COULD DO,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.
YOU'RE TELLING EVERYONE I KNOW,
I'M ON YOUR MIND
EACH PLACE YOU GO,
THEY CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

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.
