Open Wide These Prison Doors - Neil Diamond

Words and Music by Neil Diamond and Stewart Harris
Tied by love to you, but I was tied too strong.
Still, I'm afraid of knowin' what leavin' means.
I know I lived for you in all I tried to do.
You were the keeper of my dreams.

Open wide these prison doors.
Take these chains from 'round my heart.
Make believe that I'm no more.
Pay no mind when I depart.
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away.
If you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free.

You were always caring, always warm and kind.
But that was long ago when love was blind.
And I don't want to hurt you the way that I've been hurt.
But if I stay, I'll lose my mind.

Open wide these prison doors.
Take these chains from 'round my heart.
Make believe that I'm no more.
Pay no mind when I depart.
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away.
And if you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free.

Time is always moving while we're here standing still.
I'll love you even though I'm leaving.
And maybe I always will.

Open wide these prison doors.
Take these chains from 'round my heart.
Make believe that I'm no more.
Pay no mind when I depart.
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away.
And if you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free.
If you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free.
Set me free. Set me free. Set me free.
