TANGLED IN CHAINS
(Barbie Kelley)


So far away, but sitting in the next room
I feel so far from all of you
Wish I could explain how I really feel now
But the words would go in & out each ear...

Feels like my heart is all tangled in chains
And each time I feel closer
Iím shackled up again
And I canít read you any better than you can read me
So canít we open up our hearts and -
Talk honestly?


So far away, you all seem so far away
Makes everything in all our lives so far away
Youíre all sitting in the room right next to me, talking aloud
But I canít set foot in and say God makes me proud

Feels like my heart is all tangled in chains
And each time I feel closer
Iím shackled up again
And I canít read you any better than you can read me
So canít we open up our hearts and -
Talk honestly?


So far away, this distance makes us so far away
These walls make us so far away
Our hearts are so far away
So far away, you all seem so far away
So far away, youíre all so, so far away
So far away

I wrote this song sitting on my bed, listening to my college roommates talk in the other room. Earlier, I had given my life to God on a weekend retreat, and when I returned, my roommates and I didnít have much in common any more. It was one of the hardest times I had ever experienced, yet at the same time, I was happier than I had ever been in my life.
I canít take much credit for this song, it came out quickly. I would like to thank Madonna and Natalie Merchant for their vocal influences.
