Drop to Hold You

Album: Modern Love (2011)
  • I've got a love that comes in colors.
    I got a voice, comes in screaming.
    My old clothes they don't fit me now-ow-ow.
    When I was young, I took off running.
    I had a head full of tangles.
    I had my heart full of splinters oh-oh-oh.
    Then you came around,
    To save me

    Now I drop, to hold you
    To hold you, to hold you oh-oh-oh

    I had a thief, who stole my money
    Took my heart, took it so quick
    And left a hole as big as Texas oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Now I can hear the sweet swell of music
    Feel the soft beat, beat push to the surface
    Living life out loud, no one to blame it on-on-on
    Yeah you came around, to save me

    Now I drop to hold you
    To hold you, to hold you oh-oh-oh

    The satellite beams me closer,
    Keeps me steady
    The satellite beams me closer,
    Oh and I won't let you down

    Now I drop, to hold you
    To hold you, to hold you oh-oh-oh yeah love
    I drop to hold you
    To hold you Writer/s: MARK WEINBERG, MATT NATHANSON
