  • Lyrics
  • Nathan Willett sings about a long-lasting relationship which has reached a critical stage.

    I think about the old days
    What we've been through to survive
    Do we get better with time?
    Tell me I'm wrong.


    Willett said: "'Can We Hang On?' is a hopeful love song that looks back with nostalgia on the good old days but is uncertain about the future."
  • The song is accompanied by a video filmed at El Porto Beach in Los Angeles.
