LOVE TAKES NO PRISONERS
(lyrics and music by James Seals, 1998 and 2003; vocals by James Seals and Dash Crofts)
From the Louie Shelton album HOT & SPICY (1998).
When you're hangin' from the edge, with soft and bleeding fingers,
Any movement could be final, and you could fall.
When the ground below is waiting there to meet you,
Like a mountain she trembles and you know she wants it all.
Chorus: And love takes no prisoners. Sometimes it comes like a thief in the night.
And love shows no mercy. It only knows that you want her, you want her here tonight.
Soft are the chains - her tender arms around you.
With your freedom now in question you can't say no.
Well you try to break away, but you know somehow she's stronger.
Like a magnet, she's electric, and you cannot let her go.
SECOND VERSION, from the album Traces:
In the city down below the denizens are creeping,
Frail and phantom shadows as the night comes falling down.
Well I only know my heart, I know how much I miss you
It's empty here without you in the stillness I have found.
Chorus: Love takes no prisoners. Sometimes it comes like a thief in the night.
And love shows no mercy. It only knows that I need you, I need you in my life.
Soft are the chains, your memory has bound me.
And now that you're my reason there is something I must know.
If I endure this pain will you meet me in the morrow.
Like a magnet you're electric, and I cannot let you go.
It only knows that I need you.
Oh, love takes no prisoners. Sometimes it makes me just want to run away.
