​Chains

This song is by Dare and appears on the album Blood From Stone (1991).

Oh, when I was just a boy
In the town I call my home
I never thought that life could be so cruel
I could never seem to find
What I thought was peace of mind
It wasn't long before I broke the rules, oh, yeah
Oh, my Lord, I'm in chains

Well, I found what I'm looking for early one night
Working for the money I was doing all right
Every night I'd beg, steal and borrow
Never found what I'm searching for
But never got much closer
I'm standing in the line doing my time
Thinking about my perfect crime
Oh, my Lord, I'm in chains

And it's all over now
Na-na-na, na-na, na-na-now
Ooh, I'm in chains, chains, chains
I'm in chains

I was born in the summertime, baby
I'm still waiting for the sun to shine
I've been wasting my life, it cuts like a knife
I won't make the same mistake twice
I can't seem to find
What I thought was peace of mind
Standing in line just doing my time
Thinking about my perfect crime
Oh, yeah, I'm in chains, chains, chains
I'm in chains, chains, chains
Ooh...
I'm in chains, chains, chains
I'm in chains, oh!

I was standing in the line doing all my time
Everybody knows it's the perfect crime
Rave about you, baby, half a dozen crazy
Every time you go it's a thin, thin line
I could never find
What I thought was peace of mind
But I've searched this town for something out there
One of these days I'll make it, I swear
Oh, yeah, I'm in chains, chains, chains
I'm in chains, chains, chains
Ooh...
I'm in chains, chains, chains
I'm in chains

Come on, pretty baby, won't you take me home?
Because I'm still in chains and I'm alone
