Your arms are warm but they make me feel
As if they're made of cold, cold steel 
A simple kiss like a turnin' key 
A little click and the lock's on me 
Can't move my arms, can't lift my hands 
I won't admit to where I am 
But I know baby, I'm in chains I'm in chains 
I pretend I can always leave 
Free to go whenever I please 
But then the sound of my desperate calls 
Echo off these dungeon walls 
I've crossed the line from mad to sane 
A thousand times and back again 
I love you baby, I'm in chains I'm in chains 
I'm in chains I'm in chains 
Should have known passing through the gate 
That once inside I could not escape 
I never thought this could happen to me 
Never thought this is where I'd be 
But baby, baby, baby, look at me 
Baby, baby, look at me, I'm in chains I'm in chains 
I never thought this is where I'd be 
Never thought this could happen to me
