Lock Me Down

This chain, this wonderful chain

You joy’d and I respond in kind

Saying the words to make you mine

Then we wrapped the chain


This life, this wonderful life

You grow and I try to find

To break these bonds and try to bind

Then we lived our life


This world, this wonderful world

We spread ourselves and moved afar

Hoping and wishing upon a star

That this wonderful world would not scar


This dream, this wonderful dream

You passed me by without a thought

What a life we could have sought

But this dream was all for not
