  • Feels like I've been here before
    Name ain't on the door
    What are those cold eyes for?
    I don't think I know
    He's in all black
    And he thinks he's all that
    That's for sure
    A word in his ear
    My initials appear
    What's the score?

    I think I've figured it out
    You and I, we will not work
    'Cos when my back is turned
    You find a way to make things worse
    I call for calm
    But the storm comes first

    I can't hold back
    Can't hold back on you tonight
    (Ooh)
    I won't hold back
    Won't hold back on you tonight
    Won't hold back no

    You've got that passive going on
    Regression coming on strong
    I see no reason to lead you
    I follow, I follow you

    Oh when you figure it out
    Your time has come and gone
    Lost your bottle
    Lost your touch
    And now all the bets are off
    The curtain call on your cover up

    I can't hold back
    Can't hold back on you tonight
    (Ooh)
    I won't hold back
    Won't hold back on you tonight

    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone
    Nobody wants to be alone

    I wanna go if you are going
    I wanna roll if you are rolling
    You've got your leather on and got me falling
    Shoes with red soles, you're taking me home

    I can't hold back
    Can't hold back on you tonight
    (Ooh)
    I won't hold back
    Won't hold back on you tonight

    You and I, we will not work
    'Cos when my back is turned
    You find a way
    You find a way to make it worse Writer/s: Christopher James Miller, Crispin Machmichael Sandys Hunt, Daniel David Flint, Josh James Alphonse Franceschi, Matthew James Barnes, Max Michael Heyler
