Song Lyrics

"Hold Me Back"

by Jason Gray
Album: Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue

Put my feet in concrete
Tie my hands behind me
Cause I can feel the pull of the man I was before
Put your blinders on me
Wrap your arms around me
Cause I'm afraid
That I might run right out that door

If you don't hold me back
Hold me back
Cause it's just like me
To run from the one who loves me
Father please
Hold me Back
Be the strength I lack
Cause it's just like me
To run from the one that I need

Take the wind from my sail
Throw the anchor over my rails
Cause I know I'm not always the quickest to concede
When it's best that I fail
Don't let my will prevail
Cause my salvation is my magnificent defeat

I need you to hold me back...

Because I was never
able to save myself in the first place
So why would I think I could do it now
Left to my inventions,
and the best of my intentions
We know I'd only destroy myself

If you don't
Hold me back
Hold me back
Cause it's just like me
To run from the one who loves me
Father please
Hold me Back
Be the strength I lack
Cause it's just like me to run

But you hold me back
You hold me back
Cause it's just like you to
run to the one who needs you
You hold me back, Hold me back
It's just like you to love me better than I do

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Your courts above
