Lyrics for the Day – Trapped

I’d forgotten it was a Jimmy Cliff song before Springsteen made it his own.

(Springsteen version)
Well it seems like I’m caught up in your trap again
And it seems like I’ll be wearing the same old chains
Good will conquer evil
And the truth will set me free
And I know someday I will find the key
And I know somewhere I will find the key

Well it seems like I’ve been playing your game way too long
And it seems the game I’ve played has made you strong
But when the game is over
I won’t walk out the loser
Yeah I know that I’ll walk out of here again
Yeah I know someday I’ll walk out of here again

But now I’m trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah

Now it seems like I’ve been sleeping in your bed too long
And it seems like you’ve been meaning to do me harm
But I’ll teach my eyes to see
Beyond these walls in front of me
And someday I’ll walk out of here again
Yeah I know someday I’ll walk out of here again

But now I’m trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah

Now it seems like I’ve been playing your game way too long
And it seems the game I’ve played has made you strong

Because I’m trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah

I’m trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
Trapped
Ooh yeah
I’m trapped
