Baby I guess you know my story
Baby I guess you've heard my side
It seems I've traded love for glory
But I'm still not satisfied

Given all the years all the cries and cheers
Don't amount to much more than pride
Take my love for you take tomorrow too
There's not much left inside

How we laughed when we first knew love
Singing dum-de-lum-de-lie
I taught you how to see life through love
Then I taught you how to cry

And though I must have known
How easily love is thrown
I took some chances, I don't know why
There's not much you can do
You wish that I'd been true, darlin' so do I

Now you better hold out go on and hold out
Go ahead and hold out for what you know love can be
Move on and hold out don't let your love be sold out
If there's anyone who knows about it baby that's me

Ah you're right, you can't forget the way I lied
Time has seen you grow to lead your life alone
Though you tried and tried, cried and cried

Baby I guess you know my story
Maybe there's not much left to say
You know the more we talk the more we
Turn each other's hearts away

Now I'll be leaving in the morning
Leaving half of me behind
To find the pieces life's been torn in
And take whatever love I find

But you better hold out, go on and hold out
Just walk away and hold out for what you know love can be
Move on and hold out don't let your love be sold out
It's starting to be cold out for people who live like me

Move on and hold out and somewhere later no doubt
You'll find another hold out
Someone just like you baby, wait and see
