"Chain Link Fence" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
Well she's sitting right there on the chain link fence
She's down at the park with the rest of her friends
And she looks so pretty but she's only sixteen
Didn't know that when she smiled at me

Now the boys are hunched over their electric guitars
I'm lying in the grass out beside my car
I followed her down to the Dixie Freeze

Hold on, hold on, hold on to me
Sweet girl
Don't let go for the world
'Cause I'm not from here
And I'm afraid that I might never see you again

Now it's the end of the summer and I'm just twenty-one,
I been in California for the last two months
And there weren't no girls like her out there
Her boyfriend don't like me and I think that's fair

'Cause I'm sitting right here on the chain link fence
And when she smiles at me gonna take my chance
Say I know the show's over but I wish you wouldn't leave
Hold on, hold on, hold on to me
Sweet girl
Don't let go for the world
'Cause I'm not from here
And I'm afraid that I might never see you again

Hold on, hold on, hold on to me
Sweet girl
Don't let go for the world
'Cause I'm not from here
And I'm afraid that I might never see you again

I'm afraid that I might never see you again

    General CommentThis is mine and my girlfriends "song" cause she moved here from a different place, and we just sing the chorus to each other in our best southern accents.... I guess it sounds dumb, but it's really cute, and the song means a lot to me =)

    General Commentthis song is so cute.
    im currently in a crazy situation, in which im totally falling for a girl thats too young for me.
    and the careless manner of the singer totally speaks for me.

    General CommentIt's nice to hear a tale of heartbreak from a singer's perspective. When I go to concerts, I almost always wish the show wouldn't end so I can spend more time with the guys from the band. Especially the one I've set my sights on. Sounds pathetic I know.
