Candle song 3

its christmas again so we lit all the candles
and we tried to pretend that your room was a palace
but we cant seem to shake of the fear
that nothing is different, that no-one has changed
nothing has changed

i stand by my lover as she stands by me
chained to my lover as shes chained to me

weve been through the past and the pain
the love that was lost
and we know all the answers
weve taken our chances and let them drift by
its time to be free yeah its time to be free
standing s close i cant see you at all

i stand by my lover as she stands by me
chained to my lover as shes chained to me

but your books dont say much about
living your life like a thief
yeah were handcuffed and chained
we play games and play them out slowly

i stand by my lover as she stands by me
chained to my lover as shes chained to me

i stand by my lover as she stands by me
chained to my lover as shes chained to me
