Out of my sight but the vision is still the same
Out of my mind but the memory remains unchanged
Stones thrown in anger hold twice the hurt
Return to sender could only make things worse

Girl, you've got to break these chains around my heart
'Cause I've been lonely too long
You've got to break these chains around my heart
So I can finally get on with my life

Don't ask me why, why I've lived with this all alone
Locked up inside and it's cutting me to the bone
Love is a stranger avoiding me
Beware of danger's the only sign I see

Girl, you've got to break these chains around my heart
'Cause I've been lonely too long
You've got to break these chains around my heart
So I can finally get on with my life

Are you listening
Is there something that you'd like to say?
Am I getting through
Are you just gonna leave me this way?

Girl, you've got to break these chains around my heart
Before it tears me in two
You've got to break these chains around my heart
That's all I am asking of you

You've got to break these chains around my heart
'Cause I've been lonely too long
You've got to break these chains around my heart
So I can finally get on with my life
