Hold Back (Jagger/Richards)

Hear the voice of experience, a word from the wise
Grab opportunity 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 regret it some day. Choke on that
Don't let it pass you by, Hold back
You better seize the hour

If you look in your history books you delve with the past
Stalin and Roosevelt, both took their chances
And George grasped the nettle. It's do or dare,
from the banks of 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 lookin',
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
You'll end up in a madhouse,
shouting the cold walls down.
Don't hold back

Hold back, you're messing with your life
Hold back, yeah, life goes fast sometimes
Be bold, be bold, be bold baby
You're wastin' your time
I want your attention, so pin back your ear

I've been climbing this tree of promises for over forty years
The visions 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
Don't hold back, no don't hold back, you're messing with your life
