Fleetwood Mac The Chain Lyrics

Last updated: 11/09/2012 12:52:22 PM

Written by Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks,
Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, and John McVie.

Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise

Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain
And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain

Listen to the wind blow, down comes the night

Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark, damn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain
And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain
And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain

Chain...keeps us together
(run into the shadows)
Chain...keeps us together
(run into the shadows)
Chain...keeps us together
(run into the shadows)

The Chain | Reviewer: S | 11/9/12

The chain is the band. The whole song is about them never breaking the chain and giving up on the band despite all the problems they were having. It is the only song on Rumours that every member helped to write.

No way it's fickle | Reviewer: Melissa | 3/3/12

I think this song is saying one important thing. If you are in this together, meaning having a family together...You will never break the chain. How can you completely seperate with being chained by having kids as you are always in that together!

Not Fickle | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/10

I don't think this song is about "Fickle Love" as the reviewer above states. Knowing what a dysfunctional relationship Stevie and Lindsay have, this is, as most songs on Rumors, a song about obsession, love/hate and betrayals - all the more excruciating because they played them together!

damn fine song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/6/07

I really understand what they mean, if you really love someone you would never stop loving them. Fickle Love is nothing but a lie.
