Dont Hold Back - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

(lead vocal - clare torry)

Some are born to lose their heads
And some are born to use them
And some will never know their ends
And some are born to choose them

Don't let your fantasies be blinded by the light
You don't have to save your wildest dreams for the night

Dont hold back, don't hold back, don't hold back, reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out
Some you win and some you lose
And some will bring you sorrow
Some are born to lead the rest
And some are born to follow
Don't rely on miracles to open any door
And don't let a shadow be your guide anymore

Dont hold back, don't hold back, don't hold back, reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out
Ride the wave of destiny
Rise above the crest
And believe everything that happens to you happens for the best
Don't allow the world of men
To turn your head no more
Cause if you can't let yourself go
What are you saving yourself for?

Dont hold back, don't hold back, don't hold back, reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out

Don't let your fantasies be blinded by the light
For you don't have to save your wildest dreams for the night

Dont hold back, don't hold back, don't hold back, reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out
