Holding Back The Years
Mick Hucknall/Neil Moss
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 arms of Mater
Get to meet her sooner of later

I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on

Holding back the years
Chance for me escape from all I've known
Holding back the years
Cause nothing here has grown

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

That's all I have today
That's all I have to say
