I remember how it used to feel
Riding down old two mile hill
Tennis shoes up on the handle bars
Paying no mind to the passing cars
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here

No chains, no strings, no fences, no wall
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands.

It took a little time to get up to speed
To find the confidence and strength I need
To just let go and reach for the sky
You Know sometimes it felt I could fly.
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here.

No chains, no strings, no fences, no wall
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands.

It doesn't take much, just a smile or a touch
And I'm a kid again, I can almost feel that wind

On one hand I count the reasons I could stay with you
And hold you close to me, all night long.
So many lover's games I could play with you
And on that hand I see no reason why it's wrong

No chains, no strings, no fences, no wall
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands.

But on the other hand, there's a golden band
To remind of someone who would not understand
On one hand I could stay and be your loving man
But the reason I must go is on the other hand

In your arms I feel the passion, I thought had died
When I looked into your eyes I found myself
When I first kissed your lips I felt so alive
I've got to hand it to you girl, you're something else

No chains, no strings, no fences, no wall
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands.
