Oh yeah, Julie's got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don't come easy anymore

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?

Oh, just like prisoners in paradise still far from Heaven's door
Yeah, 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, 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 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

Prisoners in paradise, prisoners in paradise
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, 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
