Verse 1:

You know I think this time our love is on the ropes
You've thoughtlessly gone and ties up all my hopes
I never ever wanna be in this tug-of-war again
I just can't let you drag my love across the floor again

Chorus:

And I think it's high time to cut the rope
When I'm all tied up like this I just can't cope
And I know I've got to be free
Gotta get rid of this rope around me
When I'm all tied up like this, I got to cut the rope

Verse 2:

You know I feel like a prisoner hangin' from a tree
And this rope around my neck's so tight I can't breathe
And I wonder if I'll ever see the light of day
I can't get loose, I'm in your noose, I've got to get away

Chorus:

And I think it's high time to cut the rope
When I'm all tied up like this I just can't cope
And I know I've got to be free
Gotta get rid of this rope around me
When I'm all tied up like this, I got to cut the rope

Verse 3:

Want you to read a letter in this envelope
Written by a man who's at the end of his rope
It's a plea to let an innocent man go free
Time is running out, the ground is coming out from under me

Chorus:

And I think it's high time to cut the rope
When I'm all tied up like this I just can't cope
And I know I've got to be free
Gotta get rid of this rope around me
When I'm all tied up like this, I got to cut the rope
When I'm all tied up like this, I got to cut the rope

Time to cut the rope
