"Holding Back the Years" as written by and Michael James/moss Hucknall....
Holding back the years
Thinking of the fear I've had so long
When somebody hears
Listen to the fear that's gone
Strangled by the wishes of pater
Hoping for the arms of mater
Get to me the sooner or later, oh Lord
But I'm holding, holding, holding on
Said, I'm holding

Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I know
Holding back the tears
'Cause nothing here has grown
I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years, yeah
Nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could, yeah, oh well

I'll keep holding on (keep on)
I'll keep holding on (keep on, keep on)
I'll keep holding on (keep on)
I'll keep holding on so tight

Yeah, yeah, oh
Alright now, oh now
I've wasted all my tears, yeah
Said, I wasted all of those years, come on
Nothing had the chance to be good, no
'Cause nothing ever could, oh yeah yeah

I'll keep holding on (keep on)
I'll keep holding on (holding on)
I'll keep holding on (keep on, keep on)
I'll keep holding on (oh, oh, oh, oh yeah)
(I say, I say, I say, I say, I say)
(Oh, oh well, yeah)
Holding on, holding on, holding on
Help me sing (holding on) yeah, come on
(Holding on) ooh, I say I'm holding on
(Holding on) oh
(Holding on) that's all I have to say
