Hold On My Heart by Genesis

Album: We Can't DanceReleased: 1991Charted:

  • This poignant song records the thoughts of someone who is hesitant but open to the possibility of loving again after losing someone very dear: "Don't let her see you crying." We're never told what happened to the previous love, but it seems very likely she has died or at the very least is now far away: "She'll always be with me."
  • This was the only mellow song Genesis performed on their 1992 We Can't Dance tour. A recording from the tour is found on the live album from later that year: Live/The Way We Walk - Volume One - The Shorts.
  • A dark and shadowy accompanying video shows the band performing the song in an empty nightclub. (thanks, Steve - Torrance, CA, for above 3)

My wife and I chose this song as first dance for us at our wedding.
It's such a beautiful song. Somewhat sad too, but beautiful...

Even late in the Phil Collins era, Genesis were still musically oriented. If you take the vocals off this song, you get a very nice New Age piece. Plus, Mike Rutherford's guitar fills sound very much like Carlos Santana.Miles - Vancouver, Canada
