Holding On To You

by Terence Trent D'Arby

Truly poetic lyrics...

-------------------

I left the east side for a west coast beauty

A girl who burned my thoughts like kisses

She was down by street decree

She swore she'd pull my best years out of me

Fat painted lips on a live wire beauty

A tangerine girl with tambourine eyes

Her face was my favorite magazine

Her body was my favorite book to read

They say that poets must have as unrequited love

As all lovers must have thought provoking fears

But holding on to you means letting go of pain

Means letting go of tears

Means letting go of rain

Means letting go of what's not real

Holding on to you

I left the rough side for a seaside baby

A chamomile smile the pouts on cue

For every moment I breathe her sigh

Her bosom contains my sweet alibi

In an emotional mist she brathes in fog

And breathes it out as garden flowers

Why me of all that tough talking boys

I guess she heard my heartbeat through the noise

They say that all poets must have an unrequited love

As all lovers must have thought provoking fears

But holding on to you

Means letting go of pain

Means letting go of tears

Means letting go of rain

Holding on to you

Means letting sorrows heal

Means letting go of what's not real

Holding on to you

They say that all poets must have an unrequited love

As all lovers I'm sure must have thought provoking fears

But holding on to you

means letting sorrows heal

Means letting go of what's not real

Holding on to you

I left the east coast for a west coast beauty

a woman who wet my thoughts like kisses

she was down down by street decree

she swore she'd pull my best years out of me

fat wet lips on a sea salt canvas

Goodbye Picasso hello Dolly/Dali

The soil is fertile where her footsteps trod

She's my new religion she's all I got

They say that all poets must have an unrequited love

as all lovers I'm sure must have thought provoking fears

But holding on to you

means letting go of tears

means letting go of rain

means letting sorrows heal

It means letting go of pain
