Holding back the years
Thinking of the fear I've had for 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

Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I know
Holding back the tears
Cause 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
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on so tight

I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could

I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
Holding, holding, holding, yeah

I say it's all I have today
It's all I have to say

Songwriters
HUCKNALL, MICHAEL JAMES/MOSS, NEIL /
