Europe - Prisoners In Paradise

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 TV
I want to be loved
I want to be different
Give me a brother and sister
I'd 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

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
Got a picture of Jimmy, there on the shelf
And she looks at him and says:
“Why did we let it go?” (Yeah)

“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?

Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven's door
We had it all but still we wanted more
Now I realize, that I can't turn back
The future's here to stay, but hey:
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday.”

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 something missin' in his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want, ain't what you need

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

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: We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday, oh yeah

Solo

Prisoners in paradise, mmm..
Prisoners in paradise, yeah, yeah!

We're just prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven's door
Yeah, we had it all but still we wanted more
We're just 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: We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday
