Larry Tagg/Jenni Muldaur)
Oh I read what you wrote
Feels like chains to me
You keep me tied up
With your talk about love
That never sets us free
When I read what you say
I hear desparation In every cliche
You're daring me to break
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
Goodbye you said goodbye
You hurt me so bad
Then you come back
I hear your steps in the hall
And a letter under the door
When I read what you say
We've made a terrible mistake
And it's more than I can take
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
By now all the sweet things
You're begging to say
Are just marks on a page
I hear calculation
I hear desparation
I hear you daring me to break
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
I read your letter
And it feels like chains
I read your letter
And it's chaining me to you
