  • How can I explain when there are few words I can choose
    How can I explain when words get broken

    Do you remember there was a time, ahaha
    When people on the street
    We're walking hand in hand in hand
    They used to talk about the weather
    Making plans together
    Days would last forever

    Come to me, cover me, hold me
    Together we'll break these chains of love
    Don't give up, don't give up
    Together with me and my baby
    Break the chains of love

    Do you remember once upon a time, ahaha
    When there were open doors
    An invitation to the world
    We were falling in and out with lovers
    Looking out for others
    Our sisters and our brothers

    Come to me, cover me, hold me
    Together we'll break these chains of love
    Don't give up, don't give up now
    Together with me and my baby
    Break the chains of love
    Together we'll break these chains of love

    How can I explain when there are few words I can choose
    How can I explain when words get broken

    They used to talk about the weather
    Making plans together
    Days would last forever

    Come to me, cover me, hold me
    Together we'll break these chains of love
    Don't give up, don't give up now
    Together with me and my baby
    Break the chains of love
    Together we'll break these chains of love
    Don't give up, don't give up now
    Together with me and my baby
    Break the chains of love
    Together we'll break these chains of love
    Don't give up, don't give up now
    Together with me and my baby
    Break the chains of love Writer/s: ANDY BELL, VINCE CLARKE

  • Johnny from Essex UkI always thought these songs were performed with so much joy and that was the appeal... I was lucky enough to see erasure live a couple of times and a good time was had by all everyone was up on their feet singing along... My god can't believe it was thirty or so years ago!
  • Casey from Glendale, AzOne of my favorite Erasure Songs. Although when I first heard it I thought it was a woman singing.
