May I direct your attention to the following 
Dm                      F
simile? you're like the coasts of an ocean
G                     Dm            
buried beneath is the submarine cable 
F                       G
connecting the opposite shore that's surrounding


Eb Ab  Fm         Bb 
My man how can he stand?

Your fingers would encircle clear around the ankle

When something happens to drag on the floor of the

ocean for instance an anchor or mooring
G                    Dm            
The cable can be disrupted or even be severed
F                       G
severed which halts the transmission across it
