The Ballad's lyrics - "Hold You Back"

Entry posted

318 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.
