  • I still see your coat hangin' on the door,
    Never let anybody put one there before
    My pillow's got your head printed on it
    Baby, of all the guys you were my favorite

    Don't ask, me why
    I just can't say goodbye
    No not, tonight
    No, I just can't say it

    [Chorus:]
    'Cause I'm gonna hold on
    Yeah, I'm gonna hold on
    Baby, gotta keep holdin' on to what we had
    'Cause I don't wanna move on
    So I gotta hold on
    Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
    Like quicksand, like quicksand
    Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
    Like quicksand, baby like quicksand
    Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand

    You came along I didn't know of love
    But now I know that sometimes it's just not enough
    I hear your footsteps in my corridoor
    But it is just my heart, it's pounding like before

    Wish I, could try
    But I just can't say goodbye
    No not, tonight
    No, I just can't say it

    (Chorus)

    'Cause the ground is breaking,
    I can feel it shaking
    Wish it was that easy,
    But it's not that easy
    Gotta hold my hands up,
    Gotta keep my head up
    Gotta keep on breathing,
    Baby even if we're sinking
    Even if we're sinking
    Baby even if we're sinking
    Even if we are sinking

    'Cause I just-just gotta-gotta hold (Hold)

    (Chorus)

    Only got one life to live,
    We don't even need a piece of sand
    Only you and me,
    We need to hold on and hold on and...

    Only got one life to live,
    We don't even need a piece of sand
    Only you and me,
    We need to hold on and hold on and hold on
    And hold on
    And hold on, and hold on

    And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
    And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
    And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
