Tina Arena – Chains lyrics

Your arms are warm but they make me feel
As if they're made of cold cold steel
A simple kiss like a turnin' key
A little click and the lock's on me
Can't move my arms can't lift my hands
I won't admit to where I am
But I know baby I'm in chains
I'm in chains

I pretend I can always leave
Free to go whenever I please
But then the sound of my desperate calls
Echo off these dungeon walls
I've crossed the line from mad to sane
A thousand times and back again
I love you baby, I'm in chains
I'm in chains
I'm in chains
I'm in chains

Should have known passing through the gate
That once inside I could not escape
I never thought this could happen to me
Never thought this is where I'd be
But baby, baby, baby, look at me
Baby, baby, look at me, I'm in chains
I'm in chains
I never thought this is where I'd be
Never thought this could happen to me

    This song is about a love hate relationship with the music industry. Being trapped in a contract but loving the fame. Despite it all, not being able to leave it. Heard this comment from Tina Arena herself in an interview. The music company's initially seduce you then treat you like sh*t. Although, could really apply to any abusive relationship where the abused person feels unable to leave.
