Holding back the years, thinking of the fear I've had for so long
When somebody hears, listen to the fear that's gone
Strangled by the wishes of pater, hoping for the arm of mater
Get to me sooner or later

Holding back the years, chance for me to escape from all I know
Holding back the tears, there's 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 tight

I've wasted all my tears, wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could

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, it's all I have today
It's all I have to say
