Gretchen Parlato - Holding Back The Years



Holding back the years

Thinking of the fear I've had so long

When somebody hears

Strangled by the wishes of pater

Listen to the fear that's gone

Get to me the sooner or later

Hoping for the arms of mater

Holding back the years
Holding back the tears

Chance for me to escape from all I've known
Cause nothing here has grown
Nothing ever could yeah

I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good

I've wasted all my tears

I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
So tight

I'll keep holding on

Wasted all of those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
Cause nothing ever could oh yeah

I'll keep holding on
It's all I have to say

I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on
Holding, holding, holding

That's all I have today
