The 77s – Something's Holding On lyrics

Your body's got a hold on me
Ohhhhh and it's hard to understand
How your flesh can take control of me
Ummmmm when I don't care that much for you

You're good for only nights
When I'm lonely with no place to go
Long as you leave before light
And I want to know why

Something's holding on
(I'd really rather be alone)
Something's holding on
(Don't want you for my very own)

You really whet my appetites
Ohhhhh and stimulate my glands
As long as what you wear looks right
Ummmmm and you keep to the shape I choose

Under covers we hide
Getting down to the real thing baby
Faking love we get tight
But I still want to know why

Something's holding on
Something's holding on
Something else is holding on
It's holding on so long
It's holding on so strong

Something's holding on
Something's holding on
Must be love that's holding on
But if you cut off all my fun
I'll be telling you 'so long'
