In Chains (2017) by The War On Drugs – artist, lyrics, video, Wiki-1, Wiki-2

Goin’ out the way I always do

Callin’ out your name

Tryin’ not to hate myself

For gettin’ in the middle

And shining every light upon it

Still I miss the way you’d hold me close in a cold wind

I caught you in our room staring at the light

I’d been up all night

Is this life and we’re just living it?

Still I wanna celebrate our love

I’ve been rollin’ like a sixteen

I can die on the floor

I’ve been shackled and delivered

There’s a girl out there with silence in her eyes

Her truth is in the dark

And I see you comin’ in view

Yeah, I need you

I’m comin’ in two

In view

Ain’t no wind that I could feel in a fleetin’ rain

Turn around and rip my heart

Then look at it and say how you broke away

Ain’t no way to elevate to another line

With nowhere to go

Ain’t no chains to hold you in

To hold you to

To losing you

I was hiding from an enemy

When something inside me died

It’s hard to see real clear these days

With darkness on my mind

As I stare into the air ocean floor

And I wonder where I once was

Was I fallin’ through the air tonight

Then crumble into your arms

Is this love?

Are you sure?

Is it something you can control?

I’m retired

I’m in chains

I’m in love

I’m in pain

All these changes everywhere

Just go ahead and take my hand

Hold me close, now let me go

Try and understand

I believe in all the power

In doing what we can do

We can try and learn to make it through

Then come out the other side

I don’t see you at all comin’ in view

How do we decide what we can do?

I can’t read your mind

Just gimme the truth
