THE CHINA CHAIN

I listen to her breathing softly
she is sleeping
while the rain paints a mirror on the street
outside a fire engine siren is singing
sounds like a promise of love
out of reach

We turn our hands around the china chain
we turn and walk back the way we came
and if you could
I would love you
To explain
oh the danger of loving in vain
can you feel the rain
can you feel that warm summer rain

I find her so real, so real she moves me
so real she tells me
you’ll never guess
headlights are stars
and there’s a promise of love
out of reach
if we ever get that far
- if we ever get that far

We turn our thoughts to the china chain
oh, the danger of loving in vain
then we see that it can never
never never be the same again
and so we turn our thoughts to the china chain
oh, the danger of loving in vain
can you feel the rain
can you feel that warm summer rain?
