Lyrics for Prisoners by Doves:

Verse 1
When the day is done
It's just you and I
This is our last dance
One last fight
When there’s blood on the stage
Could you face your fears?
It all ends here
The minutes, the hours, days and years

Pre-Chorus
What did you want?
Can you give me a sign?
Or give me your current state of mind?
Old friend, it's been a while
We're just prisoners of this life

Chorus
We’re just prisoners
We're just prisoners of this life
Although we won't be for long
We're just prisoners

Verse 2
In dusty halls and to the hollow shopping malls
To the endless rows of English Roses
If you gotta believe in someone don't make that person me
If you gotta let go of something then let go of me

Bridge
And last night I dreamt
I was sent to a place of innocence
Hello old friend
We can't pretend we're not prisoners of this life

Chorus
We're just prisoners
We’re just prisoners of these times
Although it won’t be for long
We're just prisoners

Instrumental

Bridge
Hello old friend
It’s been a while
It's me again
We're just prisoners of these times

Outro
It won't be for long
(Won’t be long)
It won't be long
