Reaching out, calling far
No matter what, here I am chained
Gazing up to the crystaline stars
Their brilliance I cannot feign.
For every step away from you
Just brings me farther away
From freedom, from love, from truth
You remind me every day.
"You're mine, you are mine to own"
And you try to break my will
Along with attempts to break my soul.
Of my body, you've had your complete fill.
Someone else comes around
He's familiar and strange
He breaks the chains that had me bound
And carries me out of your range.
Your imprint has been burned from me
But the very starlight
I used to look up to see
During those quiet nights.
He takes me in his embrace
And traces trails with soothing fingers
Across my melancholy face
Until none of you can linger.
He presses his lips against mine
And new chains forge in place
Not oppressive, these amazing binds
Strong as steel, gentle as lace.
I'm chained to love.
