Why do they come if they have to go
In my dream there’s no tomorrow
If I had a friend I could trust he’d know
Then all his smiles I could borrow
I’d get on with my happy face
And I’d live my life in my perfect place and I’d

Break this ball and chain
I gotta get away from this house of pain
I gotta break this ball and chain
This ball and chain

Every part of me has its price
I don’t hide behind a label
I’m easy to be with but who am I
A pictureless frame on a table
Waiting round for my happy face
In another time and another place when I

Break this ball and chain
I gotta get away from this house of pain yeh yeh
I gotta break this ball and chain
This ball and chain

Why do they come if they have to go
Why do they come if they have to go

So here I am with my happy face
And I’m sick and tired of this perfect place and I
I gotta… I gotta…. Wah!

Break this ball and chain
I gotta get away from this house of pain yeh yeh
I gotta break this ball and chain
Gotta get away from this house of pain
I gotta break this ball and chain
This ball and chain…
