Julies got the word today she lost her job just one last pay
Life donīt 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
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 prisioners in paradise
Still far from heavens door
We had it all but still we wanted more
Now I realize that I canīt turn back the future here to stay
But hey were 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 youre livinī in a memory
Just like prisioners 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 were just children of tomorrow hanginī on to yesterday
