I held on to the hurt
Wrestled it to the ground
Fought it like heaven and hell
And I lost every round
There wasn't anybody I would trust
So long since I felt love
I'd forgotten what it was
Baby til you got a hold of my angry heart
I saw the truth
When you led my way out of the dark
I was draggin round these chains
Like some ghost in the hall
Swearing at the pain
And empty from it all
Until you got a hold of my angry heart
Living in the past
Locked up with my rage
I buildt that prison myself
It's such a lonely cage
I started believing I would never heal
Your love changed my life when I thought my fate was sealed
Baby til you got a hold of my angry heart
I saw the truth
When you led my way out of the dark
I was draggin round these chains
Like some ghost in the hall
Swearing at the pain
And empty from it all
Until you got a hold of my angry heart

SOLO

G F
I thought I would disappear without a trace
Until your love washed each teardrop from my face
Baby you got a hold of my angry heart
I saw the truth
When you led my way out of the dark
I was draggin round these chains
Like some ghost in the hall
Swearing at the pain
And empty from it all
Until you got a hold of my angry heart
Until you got a hold of my heart
