​Holding Back

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears…

It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand
It's in the way it has to reach us
It's in the restless of the shifting sand
And all the truth it has to teach us
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there

From edge to edge we take our pleasure
We follow blindly each insane command
Judged by some eternal measure
O I'll never understand
O and peace is child to no-one
We're held together by an endless strand
First to be woven then to be undone
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there

Soon all the promises are broken
And expectation passes underhand
And not a gentle word is spoken
O I'll never understand
It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there
