"Chained" as written by Romy Anna Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and James Thomas Smith....
I watched you breathe in
And I wished you'd stop
Only for long enough
Long enough

It's hard to say

Separate or combine
I ask you one last time
Did I hold you too tight?
Did I not let enough light in?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

If a feeling appears
If your mind should sway
It's not a secret you should keep
I won't let you slip away

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you missed?

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you missed?

Winged or chained
I ask you would you have stayed
Did I hold you too tight?
Did I not let enough light in?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    General CommentBy the tone of the track, I interpret this song as being the end or decline of a powerfully intimate relationship. It's a reflection of that relationship and of how it came to an end--possibly one that left many loose ends. Seemingly, there was no definitive end, instead, the relationship simply faded.

    General CommentI reckon it is about Oliver and Romys friendship, they have been friends from a very early age but the fame has obviously taken them down seperate paths where they no longer hang out etc, thats my thoughts anyhow

    My InterpretationPersonally, I think it's the classic story of drifting apart.

    My Opinionit seems christian-like. like the male is is God speaking to a woman that seemed to slip away from Him
