A chain is only as strong as its weakest link

That's what we've been told, that's what I think

Break that link, and we break the chain, and whatever it holds at both ends, it will hold no more

Whether ten links, a hundred, or a thousand score

Two hearts linked together by a chain of love

Two friends linked together by a chain of trust

Two countries linked together by a chain of peace

Ten (linked) countries make a chain of peace

A hundred (linked) friends make a chain of trust

A thousand (linked) hearts make a chain of love

But all it takes is for one heart, one friend, or one country to call it quits.

And then the whole chain is broken to bits.

Are we a link in a chain or are we what the chain holds together

A strong link broken by a cutter or a weak link broken by a feather

A chain can be made of many things, such as circumstances, steel, paper or strings

A chain of mail, a chain of lakes or a chain of islands

Two people, two hundred people, two thousand, holding hands

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link

That's what we've been told, that's what I think

Break that link, and we break the chain, and whatever it holds at both ends, it will hold no more

Whether ten links, a hundred, or a thousand score
