"Trying to Hold Back Time" as written by Alice Peacock and Danny Myrick....
Mama's looking at her baby fast asleep
Pulls him close, feels him breathe
She knows that he's gonna go away some day
Breaks her heart, life's that way

She's tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time

Tries to hide the lines on her face
Just a girl yesterday
She's smart enough to know the years are gonna pass
She don't mind, but not so fast

She's tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time

It's like tryin' to hold water in your hand
Slippin' through your fingers drippin' on the sand
It's just a waste of time, you're gonna find it's kinda like

Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
Tryin' to hold back time
