Trapped by My Love (in the Cage of her Heart)

Trip’s going to the vet song. The tune is boy band, like The Lumberzacks in Milo Murphy’s Law.

Revised with help from ChatGPT to give me the song form.

Verse 1:

I’m trapped by my love in the cage of her heart,

Feels like I’m playing a Schrödinger’s part,

She says she loves me, but it’s just a game,

Sometimes I think I’m going insane.

Chorus:

Trapped, trapped, trapped, in the cage of her heart,

Mile after mile, I cry to be free,

But she won’t let me,

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh.

Verse 2:

I try to break free, but she holds me tight,

I cry out, but she’s out of sight,

Leaving me helpless, blind in a fog, 

full of cold tables and a barking dog. 

Chorus:

Trapped by our love in the cage of our hearts,

Mile after mile, I cry to be free,

But she won’t let me,

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh.

Bridge:

She tells me she loves me but she lies. 

She doesn’t listen to my cries.

I tell her I want out, I want to be free,

But this is a never-ending journey.

Chorus:

Trapped by my love in the cage of her heart,

Mile after mile, it tears me apart,

Trapped by the love and the cage of our hearts.

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh.

Outro:

She doesn’t know that love is freedom,

And I didn’t know that it was treason;

Girl, I’m breaking free from the pain—

I’m done playing this crying game.
