Graham Parker No Holding Back Lyrics

Last updated:


(Capo at 2) Intro:
D A D Dsus4 D Bm Gsus4
D A D Dsus4 D Bm Gsus4

VERSE 1
D A D
Someone called me from across the ocean
A G
to find a weak link in my devotion
D A D
They can shoot hot knives a' down the line
A G
I just slam it down every time

CHORUS 1

F#m G D
I got the telephone jammed in my ear
A G
They're still talking but I don't hear
F#m G D
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack
Bm7 G A D
we can face the danger baby no holding back

D A D / D D A G D
there's no holding back
D A D / D D A D


VERSE 2
D A D
I cam't swear we'll never get caught
A G
I got scars all over my pass-port
D A D
but we can't give in to every whim and fancy
A G
coming to crunches is always chancey

CHORUS 2
F#m G D
I get it all being rammed down my ear
A G
I'm still talking but I don't hear
F#m G D
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack
Bm7 G A D
we can face the danger baby no holding back

D A D / D D A G D
and there's no holding back
D A D / D D A D

BRIDGE
Bm
When I tell the truth it's like pulling a tooth
F#m
I don't know what I've let myself in for
Bm
My insides are black from years of being slack
D G A D
but we can face the danger and we won't hold back

D A D Dsus4 D Bm Gsus4

D A D Dsus4 D Bm Gm

CHORUS 3
F#m G D
I get it all being rammed down my ear
A G
I'm still shaking but not with fear
F#m G D
Oh don't defend when my heart starts to attack

Bm7 G A
we can face the danger

Bm7 G A
we can face the danger
D
and we won't hold back

D A D / D D A G D
baby there's no holding back
D A D / D D A G D
baby there's no holding back
