Here Are the Lyrics to Miley Cyrus' 'Prisoner,' Feat. Dua Lipa

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus compares a toxic relationship to being trapped like a "Prisoner" in her collaboration with Dua Lipa from her latest album Plastic Hearts.

In an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe on her 28th birthday last month, Cyrus discussed how emotions can only gnaw at you if you let them. "I mean, we’re just trapped in our emotions right now. I mean, really me, there’s no escaping it. It’s like, ‘Locked up, can’t get you off my mind,’" she said. "It’s like anything that you’ve tried to suppress or compartmentalize at that point, it’s coming up. It’s yours to own, to own it or release it."

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

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?
