    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
    Holding back the tears
    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
    Nothing had the chance to be good
    Nothing ever could, yeah
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on, so tight
    Well I've wasted all my tears
    Wasted all of those years
    And nothing had the chance to be good
    'Cause nothing ever could
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on
    I'll keep holding on
    Holding
    Holding
    Holding
    Holding
    I said
    It's all I have today
    It's all I have to say

    This song was sad and hopeful all at the same time. He never gave up. When listening to this song it really makes you think how did this really happen. Will always jam this one and the music is so lovely.
