Song Description

Inspired by Ray Charles's "Take These Chains from My Heart"...

Story Behind the Song

I've had this song lying around for years and I felt that it was about time this baby had clothes.

1. There's a chain around my heart -
I need you baby though we're apart.
It's been a long, long time, since you were mine,
And there's a chain around my heart.

2. There's a pain down in my soul,
Goes on and on now you've grown cold.
It was a sad, sad day, when you went away,
Now there's a chain around my heart.

Bridge. You gotta forgive me, you gotta forgive me,
I really tried right from the start.
Now it's over and I find I'm losin' my mind,
And there's a chain around my heart.

3. There's a raincloud in the sky -
It's sending teardrops for me to cry.
You know it's hard, real hard, now (that) we're apart,
'Cos there's a chain around my heart.

Solo. Piano solo on first 2 lines of Verse.

4. I guess my tears won't dry since you said goodbye,
Well there's a chain around my heart.

Coda. Oh no my tears can't dry since you said goodbye,
And there's a chain around my heart,
There's still a chain around my heart.
