Prisoners In Paradise
oleh: Europe

I want to learn how to fly
I want to be respected
I want to get lucky
I want to get out of this dump
I just want to watch t v
I want to be loved
I want to be different
I want a brother and sister
Iīd just rather be forgotten
I want to save the world
I want to be understood
I want to be rich
Man, I just want to be somebody

Julieīs got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life donīt come easy anymore
Still strugglinīon by herself
Got a picture of Jimmy
There on the shelf
And she looks at him and says
Why did we let it go
I know that sometimes baby
We didnīt see things eye-to-eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye
Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heavenīs door
We had it all but still we
Wanted more
Now I realize that I canīt
Turn back the futureīs here
To stay but hey
Weīre just children of tomorrow
Hanginī on to yesterday
Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar
And headed on out
To find the big time
That was his dream
He gave up his past
And made it alright
But thereīs something missinī
In his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want
Ainīt what you need
He misses drivinī down
To the lake at night
Holdinī his baby
In his arms so tight
Ainīt it hard to find illusions
When youīre livinī in a memory
Just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
No matter who you are
When you ask yourself
Was it right or wrong
For me to turn away but hey
Weīre just children of tomorrow
Hanginī on to yesterday
