The Ballad's lyrics - "Hold You Back"

Posted by Malleus , 08 January 2013 · 257 views

'Ello 'ello GDC blog, yet again. Today I am posting a song I just wrote called "Hold You Back" about, what else, a girl. Same girl all of my writing on this blog has been about. There is a lot of "what if" to this song because it's what I'm currently going through. Without further ado, more cheesy writing from me!
 
Hold You Back
 
Heat settles in close by the fire
Burning bright like the desire
To stretch out the last few coals
To make it last a while
 
Snow covers the old windowsill
As the curtains just stay still
To capture the beauty inside
To swallow a better pill
 
Because January will come and go
When you least expect the temperature
It will drop, and then before you know
There's no time for thoughts so regular
Let's go
 
I'll take you there with me
If you feel the need to leave
You don't have to let them hold you back
 
And I'll see to it you feel
Like you're real and free
You don't even have to ask
Let's go
 
Ice colludes the trees we see
And then it gets the best of me
Hoping all this snow will reveal
The correct way to be
 
But it doesn't and it's just cold
Each second the tension grows
Have to act on this extremely carefully
Before it just grows old
 
I'll take you there with me
If you feel the need to leave
You don't have to let them hold you back
 
And I'll see to it you feel
Like you're real and free
You don't even have to ask
Let's go
 
You don't even have to ask, let's go
I'll see you there, 'cause you already know

I like; 
 

"I'll take you there with me

If you feel the need to leave
You don't have to let them hold you back"

 

A lot. An example of something you wish you'd written yourself. Really cool stuff, a little sharpening and it's a blinder.

Hah, we all have a person who inspires us. My songs tend to be about the same man. 

 

This is great, my favourite one of yours so far. :)

It's really interesting to see that, Cat. How we can all be so inspired by our special someones.

 

Also thank you both! I'm always interested in what you have to say about my stuff.
