Hold On To Me

Album: America's Sweetheart (2004)
  • Hey this life is never fair
    The angels that you need are never there
    But sometimes he comes to me
    In the dead of winter, dead of night
    He's all that I can see

    Hold on to me (4X)

    We all get our glory
    Our little bit of fame
    But there's no truth at the heart of any of it
    Just the brilliance and the passion and the bitterness remains

    Hold on to me (4X)

    Oh how he brings me down
    Oh, down into the ground
    I never will get out
    I never will get out

    I'll protect you from the night, it will never fall
    I'll protect you from the truth, you won't hear it all
    I am the center of the universe,
    I am the center of the universe
    I am the center of the universe

    When you're in the whirlpool and they try to suck you in
    Remember you aren't gonna drown baby til you are out of life
    Hang on to me forever baby, I could always swim

    Hold on to me (8X)

    Hush your highness don't you breathe
    No, baby hold me in your arms I'm shivering
    But what's all that for
    If I was the battle baby, you have won the war Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Alyson from Simi ValleyHide her from the truth? If she’s talking about rumors of her killing Kurt but calling them truths, isn’t she just exposing herself?
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnNever thought this song was about her daughter. The bridge in the song is beautiful.
  • Sabine from ., --'Hush, your highness, don't you breathe. Baby, hold me in your arms, I'm shivering. What was all that for? If I was the battle; baby, you've won the war' <333
  • Ryan from OttawaWhy the hell would she kill kurt cobain? what benefits would there be? i say leave her alone she's been through enough already.
  • Marissa from Palmdale, CaI only like this song cuz my girlfriend let me hear it. Courtney Love isnt on my favorite list but she can write a good song even if she did kill Kurt Cobain
