Songs That Stab Me in the Heart: Chains of Love by Ryan Adams
I heard the first two lines of this song played as an interstitial on a radio show. I sang them in my head for three days before I finally looked up the lyrics and found the song.
Walk away slowly
You don’t have to take this
In the spaces in between
Sadness on the faces
After listening to the song about 40 times in a row now I still love those first few lines. “You don’t have to take this,” I keep telling myself. Yes. That’s it.
