You Can't Hold On Too Long  (LP Version)

You Can't Hold On Too Long (LP Version)

The Cars

I can't put out your fire, I know it's too late
I can't be up for hire, it's not my best trait
The gallow glass is crackin', it's startin' to smash
How can you cry without blinkin' a lash?

You're feelings cross and wavy on the edge of the cuff
You're pushin' and poppin', you don't get enough
You wish that it was over, you never slow down
You're lookin' for kicks, there's nothing around

You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright

You're surrounded by the laughin' boys, they puncture your style
And they send for their bandanas, and you try for their smile
You'd like to come in colors, you don't know which one
You can't be too choosy, it's just for fun

You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright

You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
You can't hold on too long, it's alright
