Seems like yesterday
You were in my arms
And in a special way
You touched my heart with all your charms.
Now you're gone
And I find myself
Baby, I'm all alone
And there's no love left.

Hey! Hey!

Don't know why I failed.
For you I've always cared
And I did all I know
To win your love and make it so
You'd always stay
But you turned away.
Honey, what could I say?
How could you
How could you do me this way?

Cuz I'm chained
To your love and affection.
Chained cuz your love
Is my only direction

Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh.
I've got to make it right
Somehow it all went wrong
Somewhere down the line
The love I lost
The love I gotta find
Whoah! and it won't be long
I've gotta make it right baby
And carry you tenderly back home.

I'm chained
To your love and affection.
Baby, chained to your love.
When I hear your name
How I tremble, how I tremeble, yeah.
Honey, you know, honey, you know, yeah.

Now I admit that I
Haven't been the perfect guy
For a girl as sweet as you
But my heart and soul cries out to you.

One more chance that's all I need
I'm gonna make it right, baby,
Now you just stay won't you stay with me?

Cuz I'm chained
To your love and afection.
Baby, I'm chained cuz your love
Is my only direction.
I'm chained
