"Hold Back" lyrics

Hold Back

Hear the voice of experience
A word from the wise
Grab opportunity, yes
While you're alive

Cause if you follow the crowd
Cause 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

If you look in your history book
If you delve in the past
Stalin and Roosevelt, yeah
They 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
Nah, don't be afraid
Don't hold back
Life is passing you by
Choke on that
Keep on moving
Keep on moving, yeah
Yes, you run with the crowd, yeah
You will end up in the madhouse
Shouting those 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 wrecking your life
Choke on that
Yeah
Don't hold back
You're messing with your life
