'Chains' - Written by Alexander Shenton - 2015/04/03

Baby wore her chains, tied into her veins
Managed to smile and lie, said “It ain't so bad, but
I need you to listen, cause I need you to know
I need your forgiveness because I want to let go.”

In that moment I lived a thousand lives
Saw the clouds of pain painted in her eyes
Baby don't despair, you already know you're strong
Keep on fighting girl, don't worry it won't be long

Baby's gonna break her chains, she said
“We're all born to die anyways”
Baby's gonna break her chains.
She always gets her way

I've never been so scared to say goodnight
I never left her side, I held her hand so tight
Woke up to an empty bed, filled with my hollow stare
Was everything left unsaid? Did she know how much I cared?

Baby, baby please don't go.
You know I need you so.
I know that it hurts so bad…
But you're all I have.

Baby's gonna break her chains, she said,
“We're all born to die anyways”
Baby's gonna break her chains
She always gets her way.
