Hmm yeah
Julie's got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don't come easy anymore, no

Still strugglin' on by herself
(I'm strugglin')
Got a picture of Jimmy there on the shelf
And she looks at him and says, "Why did we let it go there?"

I know that sometimes baby
We didn't see things eye to eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye?

Oh just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from Heaven's door
Yeah we had it all but still
(Oh oh oh oh)
We wanted more
(Oh)

Now I realize that I can't turn back
(Oh oh)
The future's here to stay
(Oh oh oh)
But hey, we're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday

Whoa yeah
Aah!

Well, Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar and headed on out
To find the big time, yeah, that was his dream

He gave up his past and made it alright
But there's somethin' missin' in his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want ain't what you need, no no

He misses drivin' down to the lake at night
Holdin' his baby in his arms so tight
Ain't it hard to find illusions
When you're livin' in a memory

Oh just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
(Oh oh oh oh)
No matter who you are
(Oh)

When you ask yourself was it right or wrong
(Oh oh)
For me to turn away?
(Oh oh oh)
But hey, we're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday
Woah whoa yeah yeah

Prisoners in paradise
Ooh
Prisoners in paradise
Yeah yeah

We're just prisoners in paradise
Still far from Heaven's door
Yeah we had it all but still
(Oh oh oh oh)
We wanted more
(Oh)

We're just prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
(Oh oh oh oh)
No matter, no matter who you are
(Oh)

When you ask yourself was it right or wrong
For me to turn away?
But hey, we're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday
