Back On The Chain Gang

The Pretenders


I found a picture of you
What hijacked my world that night
To a place in the past we've been cast out of
Now we're back in the fight

We're back on the train
Back on the chain gang

Circumstance beyond our control
The phone, the TV and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from Hell
Threw sand in our eyes and descended like flies

And put us back on the train
Back on the chain gang

The powers that be
That force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees
When I see what they've done to you

Well, I'll die as I stand here today
Knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fall to ruin one day
For making us part

I found a picture of you
Those were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part
In the wretched life of a lonely heart

Now I'm back on the train
Back on the chain gang
