Default Lindsey's song

Did we read the same article?
All that Stevie definitely contributed was the chorus lyrics (note: just the words, not the melody).

There's a studio session recording that used to be floating around, about 5 minutes long, with Lindsey introducing the guitar and verse lyrics to the other members, and they gradually join him on harmonies. The song literally builds up over the course of the 5 minutes. I couldn't find it on YouTube now. Can anyone make it available?

Verse lyrics-LB

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

[Chorus music-CM]
[Chorus lyrics-SN]
And if, you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

x 2
Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night
Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies
Break the silence,
Damn the dark, damn the light

And if, you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)
x 3

[Bass solo-JM]
Outro solo-LB

Chain keep us together (running in the shadows)

Thanks a lot for making me listen yet again to Stevie's rambling demo track, which sounds nothing like The Chain.

But in a world where a track consists solely of its lyrics, then sure--let's give Stevie a 40-50% contribution.
