Rollin' from your brat sarcastic eye
A California tear, a drop of gold
Maybe you were cold, yeah, so was I
Holdin' back
Holdin' back the year

The year before the poison took its toll
Made you paper thin, me- wrinkled, old
Eventually, yeah, finally it caught up
I held you back, grabbed you by the arm
I played upon your fear

Rollin' down the window won't I
Order up some breakfast if I can
Hold me back
Hold me by the arm
Wipe away my tear

Wipe away my tear

The story ends with friends and early nights
A kitten grown to cat and no more fight
This is how we stay together, love

Holdin' back
Holdin' back the year
Hold me back
Grab me by the arm
Whisper in my ear

Holdin' back the year
Holdin' back the year
