CHAINS
(Shifrin/Marlette)

We shadow dance, you follow me, and that’s the way it has to be
‘Cause even though we’ve got no strings, you are tied to me
You never tried to turn away, unspoken touch to make you stay
And though it isn’t written in stone, you belong to me
And when we get this close in the night, the circle closes in uptight
And it’s like we’re in

Chains chains the kind that won’t break, invisible chains holding us together
Chains chains there’s nowhere to escape
I’m making you mine, I’m keeping you forever

Just like the wind you’re free to go, without your body or your soul
Oh you gave it to me long ago, you belong to me
And when we get this close in the night
Whoa whoa whoa, the circle closes in uptight, and it’s like we’re in

Chains chains the kind that won’t break, invisible chains holding us together
Chains chains there’s nowhere to escape
I’m making you mine, I’m keeping you forever

Chains chains the kind that won’t break, invisible chains holding us together
Chains chains there’s nowhere to escape
I’m making you mine, I’m keeping you forever
Chains chains the kind that won’t break, invisible chains holding us together
Chains chains there’s nowhere to escape
I’m making you mine, I’m keeping you forever
Chains chains the kind that won’t break
