Prisoner In Disguise (J.D. Souther)

You think the love you never had might save you
But true love takes a little trying
You can touch it with your fingers try to believe your eyes
Is it love or lies
So you're keeping your distance a little bit of running round you
But if she doesn't return your call on time oh my my
You just act like a fool on a holiday there's nothing you wouldn't try
You must be a prisoner in disguise
Now this night life is my life but there's no one else in it
Sometimes these lonesome breezes blow
But it's no show you might as well go if you think you could win it
Without losing and letting it show try to stay low
This city is no place to hide in everybody knows your number
I don't believe you could ever be alone if you tried
You just run like a man with no reason to run
And no place to ever arrive
You must be a prisoner in disguise
