So sad, but theres nothin that I can do

Things are so bad, forget every word Ive spoken to you

Love is when it touches you down inside

Why really are you lookin for somewhere to hide


Chorus:

Youve gotta hold back the tears

Soon you will discover maybe there could be someone who cares for you

Youve gotta hold back the tears

Dont have to say never, love will come to those who are prepared


Time will never be on your side

Listen, could be your only chance to survive

This love is waiting to call you home

Dont read youll ever be on your own


Repeat chorus


To give it back


This is all youre ever gonna be

Well, is it all worth while

Theres so much that I want you to see

It could be all worth while
