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'll regret it someday Choke on that Don't let it pass you by Hold back You better seize the hour You look in your history books You delve in the past Stalin and Roosevelt 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 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 the madhouse Shouting the 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're wrecking your life Choke on that Don't hold back No don't hold back You're messing with your life
