Metric - Holding Out Lyrics



Holding out for the right time
What if the right time never arrives?
Always waiting on the sidelines
When is it my time
To be the one, the one, the one?

Holding out for the right time
My whole lifetime slowly goes by
Always waiting on the sidelines
When is it my time
To be the one, the one, the one?

What are you doing tonight?
You can't just scroll through pictures and hide
What do you wanna to right
Now, right now, right now

All the time, they're filling up my days
All that's coming, I'm so far away
In between, I'm always holding out
Am I ever gonna be here now?
All the time, they're filling up my days
All that's coming, I'm so far away
In between, I'm always holding out
Am I ever gonna be here now?

Holding out for the right time
That second lifetime never arrives
Always waiting for perfection
Where affection cannot be won

Holding out for the right time
That second lifetime never arrives
Always waiting on the sidelines
When is it my time
To be the one, the one, the one?

What are you doing tonight?
So what are you doing tonight?
You can't just scroll through pictures and hide
What do you wanna to right
Yeah, what do you wanna do right
Now, right now, right now

All the time, they're filling up my days
All that's coming, I'm so far away
In between, I'm always holding out
Am I ever gonna be here now?
Right now, right now, right now

All the time, they're filling up my days
All that's coming, I'm so far away
In between, I'm always holding out
Am I ever gonna be here now?

Metric Holding Out Comments
  1. IonSquared

    I'm pretty sure everyone can relate to this song.

  2. Armando Antunez

    Metric telling me the truth to my face 🤯

  3. Mooktadir A

    I've been researching Metric and I must say they have reached the height of their potential both musically and lyrically in this album Art of doubt.. Great job guys..

  4. Monster Bash

    This song filled me with the dread that made me get off my ass and pursue blacksmithing now. Now I've taken a class, forged tongs and a hole punch, bought a hammer and a slab of steel to use as an anvil, and next week I'm going to start working on a forge. Thanks Metric!

  5. Joshua Stephens

    "You can't just scroll through pictures and hide" Damn you Emily Haines. STOP KNOWING ME!!!! 😂😂😂

  6. Matheus N.

    This song reminds me of All Yours, my favorite one

  7. Rodrigo Silva Padilla

    Holding Out, es mi canción favorita de Art Of Doubt, Esas guitarras me hacen poner piel de gallina. Como explicarlo si es una sensación en mi cuerpo cuando la escucho, WOW ¡¡ Uno dos tres ... y puedo escucharla mil veces. Emily Amo tu voz ¡¡¡¡ , Maldita bíblica Canción ¡¡¡ Amazon¡¡¡

  8. Devil

    Album is amazing, this and Anticipate are the best imo. Couldn't have picked a worse font for the lyrics though lol.

  9. Pete Fernandes

    I was one that only liked a few metric songs in their catalog. But this album is extremely solid. It's on repeat.

  10. Afsheen Rashid

    The beat reminds me a bit of Combat Baby.

  11. FlammBii

    Omg thank you

  12. Anya Roman

    I love you!! I missed you so much <3 This made my day!

  13. lokundjoside

    beautiful song : )

  14. Ellie.

    Listening to all these lyric vids and every single one gone "This is my favourite...oh no wait this is my favourite". So rare to love every single song on an album, please tell me they're releasing this on vinyl?

    Haus of Miklaus

    El Smith Vinyls have been released! 👍

  15. Cheney Ryan

  17. Will

    I love Metric so much. Perfect for walking, the car, good times, bad times, day pondering, late night existential dread, they're the soundtrack of my life

    truestory

    hehe, so true. My life would be slightly different without their music. I don't even want to imagine how different.

    Fortyjustice

    Late night existential dread? So that’s what this is called.lol

    Monster Bash

    Yep. This is the song that filled me with the dread that made me get off my ass and pursue blacksmithing now. Just a couple months after hearing it and I've taken a class, forged a set of tongs and a hole punch, bought a hammer and a slab of steel to use as an anvil, and next week I'm going to build a forge.

  18. Haus of Miklaus

    This song attacked me and my existential catatonia.

    321jutta

    i came out to have a good time and i'm honestly feeling so attacked right now

  19. felipe sosa
