    Exclamation Off the chain

    Hello,

    A few days ago, I heard a song with an expression that I hadn't heard of before, and ever since, I am puzzled by what it could possibly mean. The lyrics were "Your love is off the chain". Can anyone help me?

    Kind regards,

    I'd say it means either "out of control" or "set loose", but I'd need to hear the context.

    "off the chain" here means a great deal of fun, very attractive, wild fun, delightful.

    Sometimes, "off the chain " might even mean "off the hook"....it depends on the context it is used in :)

    It means wild, crazy and unrestricted.

    If something is chained, it is held back and does not have freedom.
