Holding back the years,
When somebody hears,
Strangled by the wishes of pater,
Get to me sooner or later,
Nothing ever could, yeah.
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on.
Chance for me to escape from all I know.
There's nothing here has grown.
Wasted all those years.

I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on
