Can We Hang On?

Album: L.A. Divine (2017)
  • I come here nine times asking you to not make it ten
    I'm peeling off all the honor and protecting my skin
    Apologize, I'm laying down my ego to rest
    Would you be mine forever? Just in case it exists

    I think about the old days
    What we didn't do to survive
    Do we get better with time?
    Tell me I'm wrong

    Looking back to the start who we were when we met
    This box of pictures tells a story when we fight, we forget
    And I can barely recognize those back that we were obsessed
    Can't cut out this madness and get back to the best

    Think about the old days
    What we didn't do to survive
    Do we get better with time?
    Tell me I'm wrong
    I'm looking to your old ways
    We follow the same dotted line
    Passing like ships in the night
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?

    This could've gone either way if one of us had walked
    If I'd gone off, and you'd caved in
    And we broke it off, I'd be lost
    I'd be chasing some broke down dream
    I'd be bored to death
    But we cannot stay forever young and out of our heads
    Out of our heads

    I think about tomorrow
    If I can get through tonight
    I know that we'll be alright
    Can we be strong?
    I'm looking to your old ways
    Even though we like ships in the night
    Don't you go passing me by
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?

    You can't find it
    If you're dying to live
    If you want to know the secret, hang on
    You can't find it
    If you're dying to live
    If you want to know the secret, hang on
    You can't find it
    If you're dying to live
    If you want to know the secret, hang on Writer/s: David Quon, Joe Plummer, Lars Stalfors, Matthew Maust, Matthew Schwartz, Nathan Willett
