PRISON IN PARADISE

(Words & Music by Dennis Warner / From the Dennis Warner CD “Journey of the Soul”

 

Living on an island seems like such a dream

Walking on the beaches her thoughts drift out to sea

Landing on some distant shore

Never satisfied

Feeling that there’s something more

God knows how hard she tries

                                   

                        But she’s livin’, in a prison

                        Livin’ in a Prison in Paradise

                        Yes she’s livin’, in a prison

                        Livin’ in a Prison in Paradise             

                         

Stranded on an island where lovers come to play

A big house, a swimming pool, she’s got it made

But from her balcony

She prays each night alone

For someone to share her dream

For a place that feels like home

 

                        (CHORUS)

 

 BRIDGE:       She’s waiting
                        She’s needing

                        Wanting more from life
                        Wanting more from life
                        She’s wanting it all

                        She’s wanting it all...

 

                       

                        But she’s livin’, in a prison

                        Livin’ in a Prison in Paradise 

                        Maybe tomorrow

                        She’ll escape with her life

                        And break her way out of

                        This Prison in Paradise
