Prison Time

( Colin Hay / Michael Georgiades )

Nothing left and nothing came
Woke up this morning calling out your name
The more things change the more they stay the same
Like dodging rocks in the pouring rain

I wanna know, are you doing well?
’cause baby from this distance it’s hard to tell
I wanna know, did you let it go?
’cause I can’t stop my mind from doin’ prison time

Someone left someone blamed
Stuck in the middle of a hurricane
The more I lost seemed like the more I gained
But still I have to ask you to explain

I wanna know, did you take a chance?
Or did you stay a victim of circumstance
I wanna know, did you find the door?
’cause I can’t stop my mind from doin’ prison time

Nothing’s black and nothing’s white
I hear echoes of your footsteps in the dead of night
No one is wrong and no one’s right
I’m in the ring but I don’t want to fight

I wanna know, are you doing well?
’cause baby from this distance it’s hard to tell
I wanna know, did you let it go?
’cause I can’t stop my mind from doin’ prison time

I wanna know I wanna know I wanna know
I wanna know I wanna know I wanna know …
