"I Wont Hold You Back" as written by and Steven Lee Lukather....
If I had another chance tonight
I'd try to tell you that the things we had were right
Time can erase the love we shared
But it gives me time to realize just how much you cared

Now you're gone, I'm really not the same,
I guess I held myself to blame
Time can erase the things we said
But it gives me time to realize that you're the one who's sad

You know I won't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found
You know I can't hold you back now

Now that I'm alone it gives me time
To think about the years that you were mine
Time can erase the love we shared
But it gives me time to realize just how much you cared

You know I won't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found
You know I can't hold you back now

You know I won't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found

You know I can't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found

You know I can't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found

You know I can't hold you back now,
The love we had just can't be found

    General Commentthe way they sing this is beatiful, sad but shit like this, happens..
    its ggreat
    I think the lyrics pretty much speak for itself,
    the person realises how much his other half meant to him only at the very end, where things are irreversible.
    agrees totally that she was the one, but knows she's moved on, no way back now

    MemoryI heard this song on the radio today and I started having some serious "Dark Crystal" flashbacks - the nostalgia almost made me cry. It must have come out around 1982 or so?
