Just Hold On

 

 

(VERSE)

Well he live down in the basement most his life

Surrounded by the concrete and the lies

He lost his legs in an airplane ride 1940 something

Now he’s down there reading what other people write

 

Some people say he’s waiting for his wings

I’ll tell you right now those things don’t come free

But either way he’s leaving just like you, me, and you

I guess for now I’m just too high to land

 

(CHORUS)

You gotta hold on

Like the leaves in wind

Just hold on

 

(VERSE)

Now the house above the basement is now gone

10 years has passed and so has he

There’s nothing left but a concrete slab and that fish smell in the water

But I don’t give a damn how bitter a man can be

 

(CHORUS)

You gotta hold on

Like the leaves in the wind

Just hold on

That feeling that you get when winter’s comin’

 

(VERSE)

Lately I feel like the end is surely coming

I’m startin’ to hear the children laugh in the morning

Maybe it’s time to take this ride for everything that it’s not

Or maybe it’s time to take the pictures out the frames

 

Even the days are brighter on this train

But when the pain leaves I wonder where it goes

Well, my life’s my cross to bear and you can drag it through the dirt

But you need to send a letter before I rust

(CHORUS)

Cause I'm holdin' on

Like the leaves in the wind

Holdin’ on

That feeling that you get when winters comin’

And it’s the calm before the storm

I’m holdin’ on

So clothes your eyes and take comfort in this moment

 

‘Cause I’m holdin’ on

Like the leaves in the wind

Hold on

That feeling that you get when winters comin’

And it’s the calm before the storm

I’m holdin’ on

So close your eyes and take comfort in this moment

Close your eyes and take comfort in this moment
