    General CommentAs a sub, I definitely relate this song to BDSM.

    "The way you move
    Is meant to haunt me
    The way you move
    To tempt and taunt me"

    is, the way I see it, about his Mistress (Or Master, for that matter) and how amazingly attractive and sexy she is.

    "The way you move
    Is mesmerizing
    The way you move
    It's hypnotizing"

    How he can't take his eyes off her and her beautiful body.

    "You've got me singing to you,
    Bringing to you anything you ask me to"

    As a good sub, servant or slave, one does as one's Dom says.

    It's easy to see the BDSM references if you actually know what BDSM really is like.

    He says he's in chains, which is self-explanatory.

    Song MeaningI currently have it stuck in my head that Martin might just be pining for his ex-wife. With that in mind, this song would seem to refer to not being able to get over her. To me this song is actually kind of boring, if it's not about his wife. I mean, we've heard about him being shackled and bound by love so many times that this being "in chains" seems not to be the result of a new woman but in fact him being chained to his ex-wife.

    "I know you know what you're doing to me
    I know my hands will never be free"

    For whatever reason his hands never being free seems to suggest to me that they are not newly in chains. His hands will never be free to reach out to another woman.

    Of course, I also like the idea of it being about a Mistress who makes him weak, but I have room in my head for several interpretations.
