“Captive” – Song of the Orca

I never would have hurt you
if you had just listened to me.
I’ve been screaming out to you
It should be plain for you to see.
I’ve done all you wanted,
yet you still want more from me.
I can’t stand this isolation;
I just want to be free.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I’m shouting clearly as can be.
Can you hear me?
Can’t you hear me?
I don’t know how else to make you see!

I keep thinking this is the last time
You make me pay,
But after all is said and done
It’s here you make me stay.
I just want things back the way they were
So long ago
I keep thinking that you’ll free me if
I do just one more show.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I’m shouting clearly as can be.
Can you hear me?
Can’t you hear me?
I don’t understand why you can’t see!

I feel them. I just know they’re still out there.
They feel me and there’s naught they can do.
Please let me spend some time with my family.
The ocean’s not far away.
It’s just right there.
I can smell it in the air.

If you cannot do this for me,
Do it for my family out there.
They’ve done nothing wrong
And I know they really care.
If you want to rescue someone,
Please rescue their hearts.
How can you say you care
When you’re just keeping us apart?

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I’m shouting clearly as can be.
Can you hear me?
Can’t you hear me?
I don’t understand why you can’t see!

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I’m shouting clearly as can be.
Can you hear me?
Can’t you hear me?
Please rescue me from misery.
