You donít have to be a witch
To bewitch me
You donít have to lock me away

In this prison by the sea

Long, countless hours and days pass
With nothing to do but think
No means of escape; for Iíve tried
And my risen hopes slowly sink
Iíve asked the walls in vain
What I had possibly done
To deserve this tormenting terror
As I gaze at the setting sun
The light glittering off white capped waves
The sky in darkening hues
A crazy notion comes to me
That Iím here because of you
The majesty of nature within reach
Such beauty before me
And yet I am unable to enjoy it

In this prison by the sea

And oh how slowly does time pass
When you are alone
With only your idle thoughts for company
Inside these walls of stone
Oh how you  mesmerized me
And tricked me into this
I was not aware as you turned my head
And trapped me with a kiss
All the pleasures of the world
Are right here for me
As long as I remain a prisoner

In this, my prison by the sea
