  • You better love loving and you better behave
    You better love loving and you better behave
    Woman in chains
    Woman in chains

    Calls her man the great white hope
    Says she's fine, she'll always cope
    Woman in chains
    Woman in chains

    Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man's deal
    And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel
    It's a world gone crazy
    Keeps woman in chains

    Trades her soul as skin and bones
    Sells the only thing she owns
    Woman in chains
    Woman in chains

    Men of stone
    Men of stone

    Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds time can't heals
    And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
    Well you know what I mean
    It's a world gone crazy
    Keeps woman in chains

    It's under my skin but out of my hands
    I'll tear it apart but I won't understand
    I will not accept the greatness of man

    It's a world gone crazy
    Keeps woman in chains

    So free her
    So free her Writer/s: ROLAND ORZABAL

  • Rob from CaliforniaDavid Richardson in a band (with David Foster) wrote Wildflower about his girlfriend at the time. He went to pick her up for a date but when he got there she wasn't dressed and very upset about two older women she'd been caring for at the hospital died. She was so overcome that he just let her vent her feelings about it all night and when she went into her room for what was to be a moment but when finally decided to go and check on her, he found that she had fallen asleep on her bed still not ready to go, being so overcome with emotion, sympathy for these two women.
    That is nothing like the message of Woman in Chains.

    Are you insane "Wildflower" by Skylark is lyrically nothing like this sing.
