Chains of love (Alt: Lovesmith)
Copyright © 2012 Maxim Senin
|A G E|
E | G | A | E
[moderato]
E G
molten steel submits to heat
A E
its will is broken when hammers hit
E G
trial by fire from the mold
A E
into water's quenching cold
[ref]
B A G A
time after time hand in glove
B A A G E
we are forging chains of love
E | G | A | E
E G
love brings you up | and drags you down
A E
makes you feel just like a clown
E G
cut to pieces then you're spliced
A E
crushed by jaws of the vise
E G
wrapped around anvil's horn
A E
carved with chisel killed and reborn
[ref]
B A G A
time after time hand in glove
B A A G E
we are forging chains of love
E | G | A | E
[bridge]
A D
blow the bellows light the flames
A A G E
from tortured metal cast the chains
[pause, fade out]
[start quietly]
Bm F#m
Are you a gift from Gods? Are you a punishment?
A E
Like Pandora, when Prometheus brought fire to the men
Bm F#m
The fire that I carry on Is still burning in my hearth...
A A
It took so many years to master blacksmith's art
Bm
Like Volund(Wayland) and Hephaestus,
F#m
Forging, drawing, quenching steel
A
The tools don't make the blacksmith
E
- He makes ideas become real
Bm F#m
If life comes at your hard, If there's too much drama,
A A
If you feel like you are stuck Between the anvil and the hammer -
Bm F#m
No need to run around in flurry Or jump from fire into flames
A
Don't lose your temper, and don't worry
E
- you are in master's able hands
Bm F#m
We bound ourselves so willingly with heavy chains we wrought
A E
Strong iron links that tie us Let's strike it while it's hot
Bm
I may not be all that young
F#m
And may not be your biggest dream
A
But my sledgehammer still
E
Can make your anvil scream
Bm
If it's too much for you to handle
F#m
If you turn around and duck
A
You can slam(shut) the door behind you
NC
And may this horseshoe bring you luck!

B A G A
time after time hand in glove
B A A G E
we are forging chains of love
[repeat to fade]
E | G | A | E
chains of love
E | G | A | E
chains of love

about

Maxim Senin Long Beach, California

Maxim Senin’s preference in music is laid-back rock and a touch of folk with an emphasis on his lyrical composition. Love, love triangles, betrayal and unanswered love looms over and is easily detected in his sound. His songs are reflective, with a twist and plot in the story line, and that have hope and humor in them. Lyrics are honest. He tends to start songs with rhythm guitar and build on it. ... more
