Lyrics for The Chain - 2004 Remaster by Fleetwood Mac:

Verse 1
Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

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

Verse 2
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

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

Guitar & Bass Solo

Outro
(Chain, keep us together) Run in the shadow
(Chain, keep us together) Runnin' in the shadow
(Chain, keep us together) Runnin' in the shadow
(Chain, keep us together) Run in the shadow
(Chain, keep us together) Run in the shadow

Song Facts

“The Chain” is a Fleetwood Mac anthem and one of their best-known songs.

“The Chain” is the bond that keeps the relationship going and never-ending. It can also be seen as the chain that keeps the band together; linking the members together in ways that don’t allow them to truly part ways. Written in a time when the band members were not on talking terms due to breakups and rifts in the relationships they had, the lyrics are often said to have been attacks at each other, but the band also suggests that there is some underlying love that doesn’t let them completely part ways.

In 2017, 40 years after the song’s release, it was used in blockbusters Marvel Studio’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and Margot Robbie’s “I, Tonya” as part of the movies' soundtracks.
