Chains

Now I’m caustic, acetic
Brave yet pathetic
Breaking when cold winds blow

See, his hands were my passion
His mind my compassion
These feelings just seem to grow

And all this time I wait for a sign
I wade in the waves where I have almost drowned

‘Cause he’s my man
And I’m trapped in him
Feeling lost again
Now he’s gone, I don’t know how I’ll be free from him
And these chains I want to tie around him
Make him love me
Force his heart to beat here by my side
Take these chains and let me keep you tied
Make you love me, baby, loving you
How bad can it be?

Now the windows crack open
The sky looks so broken
The moon is a melting plum

I open my mouth and
Let the slow drops in
Ready and ripe for him

And one day I’ll be bathing in his sea
Thirsty then full of what he’s given me

‘Cause he’s my man
Someday, but when?
‘Til then, I’m lost again
Now he’s gone I don’t know how I’ll be free from him

And these chains I want to tie around him
Make him love me
Force his heart to beat here by my side
Take these chains and let me keep you tied
Make you love me, baby, loving you
How bad can it be?
