"Chains Of Love" as written by A. Nugetre and Harry Van Walls....
How can I explain when there are few words I can choose
How can I explain when words get broken

Do you remember there was a time, ahaha
When people on the street
We're walking hand in hand in hand
They used to talk about the weather
Making plans together
Days would last forever

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we'll break these chains of love
Don't give up, don't give up
Together with me and my baby
Break the chains of love

Do you remember once upon a time, ahaha
When there were open doors
An invitation to the world
We were falling in and out with lovers
Looking out for others
Our sisters and our brothers

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we'll break these chains of love
Don't give up, don't give up now
Together with me and my baby
Break the chains of love
Together we'll break these chains of love

How can I explain when there are few words I can choose
How can I explain when words get broken

They used to talk about the weather
Making plans together
Days would last forever

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we'll break these chains of love
Don't give up, don't give up now
Together with me and my baby
Break the chains of love
Together we'll break these chains of love
Don't give up, don't give up now
Together with me and my baby
Break the chains of love
Together we'll break these chains of love
Don't give up, don't give up now
Together with me and my baby
Break the chains of love

    General CommentI'm a huge Erasure's fan and this song is one of their most infectious moments, whose lyrics aren't necessarily gay at my pov. Actually I sincerely think most Andy Bell's lyrics always let 'straight' interpretations and it's not different with Chains Of Love. It's simply a song about not leaving yourself to be caught by the chains of love since you would be losing many chances for knowing another interesting people. But, of course, nobody owns such a control about feelings, specially love, a unbreakable one. Well, that's just my opinion.

    General CommentI completely agree with Circusjuggler..it's about breaking chains of love. Because healthy love should not make you feel "chained". It's about breaking bad cycles,so future generations can have healthy relationships. I was a huge Erasure fan in Jr. High/Highschool. PARENTS listen to the LYRICS of the songs your children are listening to0!! I am a HUGE ADVOCATE for children...and FIRMLY BELIEVE music and art can be used as therapy to help children cope with the dysfunction that is in their home! :)

    General CommentThis song popped into my head today for some odd reason, so I Googled the lyrics and pondered their meaning. For me, it's about breaking old relationship paradigms. Love and bonding without bondage. Lol.. There are no guarantees in love... and we've been taught that love is conditional and limited. In a perfect world, this would not be so.
