Story Behind the Song

I'm held hostage, at your mercy as you leave me here to sort through your belongings... and I wish you would come back

Lyrics

HELD HOSTAGE ?2000 J. Corday
5th or 6th capo

Am C Em
Why do you get to decide what stays and what goes
Sneaking around like a burglar in my lover?s clothes

Who are you now but my jury, my judge
As you weed through my life like a garden, digging up the mud

Am C Em Am C Em
Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
Am C Em Am (C) B
Held hostage, at your mercy I stand

You were always such a politician, so why am I surprised
That when you divided my heart into pieces, you?re selling each slice

Making me feel like a beggar, as a grope for what?s mine
Why are you nailing me down, tell me why, tell me why?
Under the bed like a bad dream,
I seek but I can?t find?
(Hungry for some kind of hand-out, waiting in line)
(And I?ve become a prisoner of your heart, locked inside)
(Seeking some kind of redemption I know I?ll never find)

Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
Held hostage, at your mercy?at your mercy

CHANGE:
C G sus Em C
I?m waiting for you to decide? what is mine
C G C B
And I?m hoping that you might come back, and hold me, hold me?

But I?m chained to the rules you have spoken, that I have to obey
Cause I can?t move, and I can?t breathe, without your OK

So I?ve become your voodoo doll, with your magic and pins
Sticking me down like a bug in your box of old worn-out things

HELD HOSTAGE ?2000 J. Corday


E Ab B
Why do you get to decide what stays and what goes
Sneaking around like a burglar in my lover?s clothes

Who are you now but my jury, my judge
As you weed through my life like a garden, digging up the mud

E G B E G B
Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
E G B E G B Gb
Held hostage, at your mercy I stand

You were always such a politician, so why am I surprised
That when you divided my heart into pieces, you?re selling each slice

Making me feel like a beggar, as a grope for what?s mine
Under the bed like a bad dream I seek, but I can?t find

Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
Held hostage, at your mercy?at your mercy

CHANGE:
G D B G
I?m waiting for you to decide? what is mine
G D G Gb
And I?m hoping that you might come back, and hold me, hold me?

But I?m chained to the rules you have spoken, that I have to obey
I can?t move, I can?t breathe, without your OK

So I?ve become your voodoo doll, with your magic and pins
Sticking me down like a bug in your box of old worn-out things

Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
Held hostage, at your mercy I stand

And I can?t move, and I can?t breathe, without your OK

So I?ve become your voodoo doll, with your magic and pins
Sticking me down like a bug in your box, of old tired things

Held hostage, my fate is in your hands
Held hostage, at your mercy I stand
