Unchain My Heart is a song written by Bobby Sharp and recorded first in 1961 by Trini Lopez and later by Ray Charles. The song was a hit for Charles when released as a single in late 1963. Accompanied by his Raelettes, Charles sang about wanting to be free from a woman "who won't let (him) go".
Unchain my heart, baby let me be
Unchain my heart 'cause you don't care about me
You've got me sewed up like a pillow case
But you let my love go to waste so
