holding out lyrics – chris rea

i see you laughing up at me, and i can’t hide
what it is that you can see
i guess that’s why
i’m holding out my love for you
and when you turn it around
in different ways
the answers turn around and fly away

i see you laughing up at me
and i can’t hide
what it is that you can see
i guess that’s why
i’m holding out my love for you

a lifelong history
of trust in vain
i lead the fools’ parade
out in the rain

i see you laughing up at me
‘cos you don’t seem to care
but oh how happy i can be
when you are there

that’s why i’m holding out
my love for you
