Lyrics

Set me free, set me free
Is this what you wanted to happen to me
Golden wings in the sunset
Take me back
All alone I waited
There was no one out there

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
My 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
There was some love to be sold
(Chain of chains)
You said you might be comin’ back to town
(Chain of chains)

All alone I waited
There was no one out there
In the rain she lay facedown
What is this freedom that she wanted
What kind of freedom
What kind of game

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
My 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
There was some love to be sold
(Chain of chains)
You said you might be comin’ back to town
(Chain of chains)

Set me free, set me free
Is this what you wanted to happen to me
Golden wings in the sunset
Take me back
All alone I waited
But there was no one out there

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
You liked my 24 karat gold, chain of chains
(Chain of chains)
(Chain of chains)
You liked my 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
Yes you liked my 24 karat gold, yeah
My love
