Simply Red - Holding back the years
Tekst en muziek: Mick Hucknall en Neil Moss
(1985)






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 me the sooner or later, ohohoh



Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I’ve known
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 ohohoh



I’ll keep holding on
I’ll keep holding on
I’ll keep holding on
I’ll keep holding on
So tight



Well, I’ve wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
’Cause nothing ever could, oh yeah, oh



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: “That’s all I have today”
It’s all I have to say
