I've been lost in the middle
Always trying to find the wishin' well
Runnin' 'round in circles
I was crossing the line

I want to touch you
Don't want to see you
You've got a knife in your heart
Don't say that you did it for me

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

You know right where you want it
But you never gave it in return
Runnin' me in circles
Always crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Leave you confused
You took the easy way out
When you looked through the eyes of a fool

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never, never, never, never

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause I'm never gonna set you free

    General CommentAgreed.

    But what does it mean exactly to unchain the night?

    Or to never unchain the night?

    General CommentI would elaborate more but to keep a long story short.

    I think the song is a couple flirting with the idea ending the relationship but neither of them are sure if they should, or not. She wants him to show signs that he wants her to stay but he somewhat doesn't give any. Then he preceeds to tell her that a relationship thats losts its love can regain it. Then later tells her a relationship that has love can lose it. ('Cause there's always another turn')
