​Please Don't Hold Back

This song is by Gutterball and appears on the album Gutterball (1993).

40-watt bulb fills half the room
And then the other half is filled with gloom
Fontella Bass is on the stereo
I wish someone would come along and rescue me

Please don't hold back
There's nothing missing
There's nothing you lack
Please don't hold back

There's just a few things that you can't forget
And then you stub them out like your cigarette
Shape yourself until you think it's right
And then you're still afraid to go out at night


Late at night when the city sleeps
Villains laugh and lovers weep
Eyes sealed shut and we don't let on
That we're counting every second until the dawn
