No Holding Back

This song is by Graham Parker & The Rumour and appears on the album The Up Escalator (1980) and on the live album Live Cuts From Somewhere (2003) by Graham Parker & The Figgs.

Someone called me from across the ocean
To find a weak link in my devotion
They can shoot hot knives down the line
I just slam it down every time

I got the telephone jammed in my ear
They're still talking but I don't hear
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack
We can face the danger
Baby no holding back

There's no holding back

I can't swear we'll never get caught
I got scars all over my passport
But we can't give in to every whim and fancy
Coming to crunches is always chancey

I get it all being rammed down my ear
I'm still talking but I don't hear
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack
We can face the danger
Baby no holding back

There's no holding back

When I tell the truth it's like pulling a tooth
I don't know what I've let myself in for
My insides are black from years of being slack
But we can face the danger
And we won't hold back

I get it all being rammed down my ear
I'm still shaking but not with fear
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack
We can face the danger
We can face the danger
And we won't hold back

Baby there's no holding back
Baby there's no holding back
