Chained Lyrics

by Marvin Gaye

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Seems just yesterday you were in my arms
And in a special way you touched my heart with all your charms
And now you're gone
Oh, and I find myself
Honey, I'm all alone
And there's no love left

Hey

I don't know where I failed
For you I've always cared
I did all I know to win your love and make it so
You'd always stay but you turned away
Honey, what could I say
How could you, how could you, how could you do me this way

'Cause I'm chained to your love and affection
Girl, I'm chained -- oh your love's my only direction

O-h-h ah, ah ,ah AH ! ah ah
I've got to make it right
Somehow it all went wrong
Somewhere down the line the love I lost
I've got to find oh and it won't be long
Gonna make it right, baby
And carry you tenderly back home

'Cause I'm chained to your love and affection
Girl I'm chained
Every time I hear your name
I tremble, girl I tremble
Can't help lovin' you

A-w-w, you know -- can't , can't... A-w-w you know
...Help myself
Baby, oh baby

O-h-h-h now I admit that I haven't been the perfect guy
For a girl that's sweet as you
But my heart and soul cries out to you
Oh That's all I need
I'm gonna make it right, baby
If you just stay, stay with me

'Cause I'm chained , chained
Yes I am
Oh I'm chained to your love and affection
'Cause I'm chained , chained yes I am, yes I am
'Cause I'm chained
