Hold­ing Back The Years (2005)

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

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
And 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 of those years
And noth­ing had the chance to be good
Cause noth­ing ever could oh yeah

I’ll keep hold­ing on
I’ll keep hold­ing on
I’ll keep hold­ing on
I’ll keep hold­ing on
Hold­ing, hold­ing, hold­ing

That’s all I have today
It’s all I have to say
