We've already heard the gorgeous first single, "Angels," as well as severalliveiterations of new songs, but here is the second new studio track from Coexist, "Chained." The album is out September 11.

Here are the "Chained" lyrics, per the video:

I watched you breathe in
And I wished you’d stop
Only for long enough
Long enough

It’s
Hard
To
Say

Separate or combine
I ask you
One last time
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh

If a feeling appears
If your mind should sway
It’s not a secret you should keep
I won’t let you slip away

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

We used to be closer than this
We used to be closer than this
We used to get closer than this
Is it something you miss

Winged or chained
I ask you
Would you have stayed
Did I hold you too tight
Did I not let enough light in

Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh-oooh
