RANDY CRAWFORD lyrics - Holding Back The Years

RANDY CRAWFORD
"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 neither 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 tired.

I've wasted all my tears,
Wasted all those years.
And nothing had the chance to be good,
'Cause 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 tired.

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