Annie Ross And The Low Note Quintet – Prisoner Of Life lyrics

If you're looking for a rainbow
You know there's gonna be some rain
One minute you're filled with happiness
Next minute there's nothing but pain

When you're a prisoner
And I'm a prisoner
I'm a prisoner of life

One day your man is here
The next day he's walked out and gone
But no matter what happens
You simply somehow gotta carry on

When you're a prisoner
And I'm a prisoner
I'm a prisoner of life

Life's god
It's bad
It's somewhere in between

But it's the unexpected
And the uncertainty
That keeps us going
You know what I mean

Yesterday you own the world
The next day the world owns you
One day everything's a lie
The next day you swear it's all true

That's what happens when you're a prisoner
And I am prisoner
I'm a prisoner of life
