don't hold back

lyrics

don't hold back
when you got nothing to lose
you been waiting all night to say
all the things that have been
running through your mind
you can let it all go today

you could do it in a dance
you could do it in the song
you could clap your hands
you could even sing along

it seemed that time is really on my side
the band had just begun to play
i heard familiar melodies
that made me want to sway

I'd seen her many times before
but never by herself
and here she stood right next to me
still i had to tell myself

don't hold back
when you got nothing to lose
you been waiting so long to say
all the things that have been
running through your mind
you can let it all go today

you could do it in a dance
you could do it in the song
you could clap your hands
you could even sing along

my eagerness built with intensity
but sometimes i tend to over-think
by now the wolves began to come around
to offer her a drink

she turned them down
with laughter and with grace
and then she looked my way
the time had come for us to meet
i thought for goodness sake

don't hold back
when you got nothing to lose
you been waiting all night to say
all the things that have been
running through your mind
you can let it all go be free

you could do it in a dance
you could do it in the song
you could clap your hands
you could even sing along
