I've tasted sour
And I've tasted sweet
Seen bitter days draw a tear
I've been swept off my feet
Seems I've been here many times before
Every time I reached out
I couldn't unlock the door
I'm holding on
To things that used to be
Holding on to things
That again will never be
And I'm always gonna hold on to you

I've seen some good timesv I've seen some bad
Been caught in situations
That left me oh, so sad
I'm holding on to things that used to be
Holding on to things that again can never be
And I'm always gonna hold on to you

I used to live my life
In late night dreams
Reality was hidden by the dark
It was an easy life it seemed
I'm holding on to things that used to be
Holding on to things that again will never be
And I'm always gonna hold on to you
