Holding back the years
Thinking of the fear I've had so long
When somebody hears
Listen to the fear that's gone

Strangled by the wishes of pater
Hoping for the arm of mater
Get to me sooner or later
Nothing ever could, yeah

I'll keep holding on
(I'll keep holding on)
I'll keep holding on
(Keep holding on)
I'll keep holding on
(Never let you go away)
I'll keep holding on

Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I know
Holding back the tears, yeah
There's nothing here has grown

I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
Nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could, yeah, yeah, yeah, alright

I'll keep holding on
(I'm gon' keep holding on)
I'll keep holding on
(Holding and holding and holding)
I'll keep holding on
(I'll keep holding, babe)
I'll keep holding on
(So tight)

I wasted all my tears
Wasted all those precious years
Nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could, yeah, yeah and I'll

I'll keep holding on
(I'm gonna hold on, babe)
I'll keep holding on
(I'm gonna hold, hold, hold, hold on)
I'll keep holding on
(Can't let you go)

I'll keep holding on
(I keep holding and holding and holding on)
I'll keep holding on
(I can't let you go for nobody)
I'll keep holding on
(I'm gonna keep holding and holding, baby)

I'll keep holding on
(I, I)
I'll keep holding on
(I'll keep holding, holding on)
I'll keep holding on
(I'll keep holding on)
