"Ball And Chain" as written by Phil Madeira and Susan Ashton....
In the middle of the night, wakened by the wind
Or was it something from my past, come to call again?
It was the presence of the pain that I could not escape
And it wrapped around my soul like a ball and chain

[Chorus]
All of us have a heartache, all of us have been stained
All of us long for freedom, but there's only one who can break
This ball and chain

In the middle of the night, wakened by the wind
Or did I hear it call my name like a faithful friend?
It was the presence of the peace that I could not escape
And it wrapped around my soul like a warm embrace

[Chorus]

Facing all my fears knowing that He's near
I stand tall, healing as His tears wash my lonely years
He calls to me in the middle of the night

[Chorus x2]

But there's only one who can break
There's only one who can break
There's only one who can break this ball and chain...
