Hold Back Lyrics

Hear the voice of experience
A word from the wise
Grab opportunity
While you’re alive
‘Cos if you follow the crowd
‘Cos if you act like a coward
You’ll end up yelling out loud

Hold back
You’ll regret it someday
Choke on that
Don’t let it pass you by
Hold back
You better seize the hour

You look in your history books
If you delve in the past
Stalin and Roosevelt, yeah
Both took their chances

And George grasped the nettle
It’s do or dare
From the banks of the Delaware

Yeah, don’t hold back
Trust your gut reaction
Be bold, be bold, baby

If you don’t take chances
You won’t make advances
Hold back, yeah

Don’t matter if you ain’t so good looking
If you ain’t sharp as a blade
Don’t be afraid

Don’t hold back
Life is passing you by
Choke on that
Keep on moving, keep on moving

Gotta run with the crowd, yeah
You’ll end up in the madhouse
Shouting the cold walls down
Yeah, don’t hold back

Hold back
You’re messing with your life
Hold back
Yeah, life goes by fast sometimes
Be bold, be bold, be bold, be bold, baby
You’re wasting your time
I want your attention
So pin back your ears

I’ve been climbing this tree of promises
For over forty years
Your vision get broken
And bust on the ground
So watch me, watch me rebound

Yeah, don’t hold back
You’re wrecking your life
Choke on that
Don’t hold back
No don’t hold back
You’re messing with your life
