[Em9]  Strangled by the [A]wishes of pater, [Em9]    hoping for the [A]arms of mater
[Em9]  Get to me the [A]sooner or later  [A]
[Em9]      [A] x2
verse 2:
[Em9]  Holding back the [A]years, [Em9]    chance for me to[A] escape from all I�ve known
[Em9]  Holding back the [A]tears, [Em9]    cause nothing here has [A]grown   [A]
[Em9]  I�ve wasted all my [A]tears, [Em9]    wasted all [A]those years
[Em9]  And nothing had the [A]chance to be good,[Em9]    nothing ever [A]could yeah whoa

[Em]  I'll keep [A]holding on, [Em]   I'll keep [A]holding on

   So [Em]tight  [A]            [Em]             [A]   oh now    [A]
