I'm a prisoner here
By your design
And the key to the door
Oh I can't find

Closin' in here, baby
Are these four walls
Not even a dime will you give me
To make my one call

I don't know
What a man's suppose to do
When the joy is gone
Gone away from you

[Chorus:]
Ain't no hammer, ain't no rock
Can break the lock on these chains
These chains of love

I drag down the boulevard
This ball of steel
And the ties that bind me
Girl, are all too real

I gotta go free
Like a bird up in the air
Like a child in the school yard
Without a care

[Chorus:]
Ain't no hammer, ain't no rock
Can break the lock on these chains
Ain't no spell none I can tell
Can take away these chains
Ain't no how to get out
Outta these chains of love
These chains of love

[Bridge:]
Look at the clock
So much time
I Look again
And the hands are stopped

[Chorus:]
Ain't no hammer, ain't no rock
Can break the lock on these chains
Ain't no spell none I can tell
Can take away these chains
Ain't no how to get out
Outta these chains of love
These chains of love
Outta these chains of love
These chains of love
