Hold On

Album: Born To Sing (1990)
Charted: 5 2
  • When I had you
    I treated you bad
    Wrong my dear
    But since, since you went away
    Don't you know I sit around
    With my head hanging down
    And I wonder who's loving you

    Oooh, my first mistake was
    I wanted too much time
    I had to have him morning, noon, and night
    If I would of known then
    The things that I know now
    I might not have lost the time I complain about

    [Chorus]
    Don't waste your time
    Fighting blind minded thoughts of despair
    Hold on to your love
    You gotta hold on
    Hold on to your love
    Ooh, ooh, baby hold on
    Hold on to your love
    You gotta hold on
    Hold on to your love

    The art of playing games now
    Is not the hearts you break
    It's bound to good love you make
    When it's heart's on fire
    Give him love evryday
    Remember he needs space
    Be patient and he'll give his heart to you

    [Chorus]

    Trust and honesty too
    Must be the golden rule
    You'll feel the strength of passion in your soul
    Burn so deeply within
    Ooh, the magic that you share
    So sacrifice and show how much you care

    [Chorus]

    Keep the ties
    Hang on tight
    And don't let go
    No, no, no, no

    If you need him
    Just keep on
    Just keep on hanging on
    Little trust, honesty, golden rules

    Feel the strength of passion in your soul
    It's burning so deep
    Have faith
    Just keep the fire burning at home

    Hey yea
    He'll come home to you
    He'll be there for you
    He'll want to have you

  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesEn Vogue's best song, by far. Personally, I don't think they were ever able to equal it...
  • Musicfan from New York, NyGreat song and GREAT group! I guess this decade's version is Destiny's Child. They're pretty good but En Vogue could sing rings around them...
