No one leaves their love behind

Not even at the risk of agony and death

I had my chance at freedom once

I slipped through the bars

And was free

I could run through the jungle

I had a good chance to make it

But he was in the cage

He couldn't escape

He was stuck there waiting for the people,

The pain and torture.

I couldn't leave him

I don't think he would have left me either

Even if he wouldn't admit it now

He begged me to go

But I couldn't leave him

I couldn't leave the person I loved behind.
