Prisoner Lyrics

Prisoner, prisoner
Locked up, can't get you off my mind, off my mind
Lord knows I tried a million times, million times
Oh-whoa, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

Strung out on a feeling, my hands are tied
Your face on my ceiling, I fantasize
Oh, I can't control it, I can't control it
(I can't control it)
I try to replace it with city lights
I'll never escape it, I need the high
Oh, I can't control it, I can't control it
(Oh)

You keep makin' it harder to stay
But I still can't run away
I gotta know, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

Prisoner, prisoner
Locked up, can't get you off my mind, off my mind
Lord knows I tried a million times, million times
Oh-whoa, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?
Prisoner, prisoner
Locked up, can't get you off my mind, off my mind
Lord knows I tried a million times, million times
Oh-whoa, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

I tasted heaven, now I can't live without it
I can't forget you and your love is the loudest
Oh, I can't control it, I can't control it
(Can't control it)

You keep making it harder to stay
But I still can't run away
I gotta know why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

Prisoner, prisoner
Locked up, can't get you off my mind, off my mind
Lord knows I tried a million times, million times
Oh-whoa, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?
Prisoner, prisoner
Locked up, can't get you off my mind, off my mind
Lord knows I tried a million times, million times
Oh-whoa, why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

(Prisoner)
Can't get you off my mind
Why can't you just let me go?
(Million times)
Million times
I wanna know why can't you, why can't you?
I wanna know why can't you, why can't you?
I gotta know why can't you
Why can't you just let me go?

Prisoner Meanings

In this song, the main message in my opinion is basically how a person gets trapped in their own mind like a prisoner. I don't know about others, but this has certainly happened to me before. Sometimes when I think too deeply about something, or someone, I get stuck in this black hole of endless thoughts. It becomes impossible to escape it and I feel like a "prisoner". The same emotions is being presented in this song, but in a more romantically inclined way. The singers are saying that they are trying to escape the thoughts of their lover but they have no control over this.
