“The Man in the Iron Mask” – Billy Bragg

When he drops you off, I will not say,
"Who was that, who so quickly drove away?"
The things you've done
And the places you've been:
When I open the door for you
I will not let them in.

As long as you come back to me
I will never ask.
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask.

You said you loved me and it broke my heart;
I was always your prisoner right from the start.
The nights you spend without me,
This house is like a dungeon.
And you only return to torture me more.

You must have your reasons;
I will not ask.
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask.
