Bilal – Holding It Back lyrics
I be holding it back
But it's feeling like a heart attack
This is big as a heart can get
Can you give it to me before I die, girl?
I'm jonesin'foreal
You know my hands can't seem to sit still
I take your cup and fill to the rim
Up until dawn, and I'm still drinkin'

Can this be, I'm so high
Carry me, til the light
Spend some time, make me moan
Take me down, sweet and low

And we're coming, and we're going
And we don't know which way is up
And we don't know which way is down
We just flowin', and we're coolin'
And we're lovin' stripped down
Just lovin', stripped down
And I never felt this way before

I find myself looking up at the night
I swear these stars be looking like you
I meant to say just tryin' to get over the night
You said you couldn't stay and gave me the blues, baby
We got nothin' to lose, I will always be here for you
Girl if you're with it, I'll be down more than you know
If you saw me, God give me a clue, baby

Can this be, I'm so high
Carry me, til the light
Spend some time, I'll let go
Take me down, sweet and low

And we're coming, and we're going
And we don't know which way is up
And we don't know which way is down
We just flowin', and we're coolin'
And we're lovin' stripped down
Just lovin', stripped down
And I never felt this way before

And we're coming, and we're going
Which way is up
And we don't know which way is down
We just flowin'
And we're lovin' stripped down
Just lovin', stripped down
Down
