Status Quo – Hold You Back lyrics

(Rossi / Young / Parfitt)

How d'you know the music
When you don't know the score
Do you think that you can make it
When you don't need no more
Is it really the reason
When it is not a need
Are you trying hard to write it
Before you can read

Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Slow you down, you've gotta try

Does the clock that you're watching
Ever tell you 'bout the time
Does the song that you're singing
Sound to you like a rhyme
Will there be an answer
When you stop askin why
Or because of the jigsaw that makes up a lie

Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Slow you down, you've gotta try

How d'you know the music
When you don't know the score
Do you think that you can make it
When you don't need no more
Is it really the reason
When it is not a need
Are you trying hard to write it
Before you can read

Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Slow you down, you've gotta try

Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Hold you back, hold you back, slow you down
Slow you down
Hold you back hold you back slow you down
