  • It's been a long time coming that I had to say
    When I wake up in the morning all I do is pray
    For some guidance and protection on the streets today
    And an answer to the questions I ask everyday
    So tell me why do the birds that used to fly here
    Tell me why do they come to die here
    And all the kids that used to run here
    Tell me why did they load their guns here
    I remember, in the days when,
    We were one heart no need to defend
    I just wrap my arms around
    Don't give up this song is for you

    Hey, hey, hey, no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away
    I say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away

    I hold on, I'm trying to hold on,
    I hold on, hold on, hold on

    From the tops of the buildings to the streets below
    From the Wall Street banks to the empty homes
    Between the lines of the people standing all in a row
    There's a crack in the gutter where a flower grows
    Reminding me that everything is possible
    Yeah reminding me that nothing is impossible
    You gotta live for the one that you love you know
    You gotta love for the life that you live you know

    Singin' hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away
    I say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away

    I hold on, I'm trying to hold on,
    I hold on, I'm trying to hold on

    Until the morning comes again,
    I will remain with you my friend
    And we will ride until the sun,
    Goes to the place where it begun
    And we will live to laugh and cry another day

    Don't let nobody ever tell you that it couldn't be done
    Don't let nobody ever tell you that we couldn't be one
    Don't let nobody ever tell you that it shouldn't be sung
    Don't let nobody ever tell you you're the only one

    Singin' hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away
    I say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away

    Whoa oh oh oh, I hold on
    Whoa oh oh oh, I hold on
    Whoa oh oh oh, I'm just trying to hold on
    Whoa oh oh oh, trying to hold on
    Whoa oh oh oh, trying to hold on

    I say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away
    I say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
    There's just one thing that I got to say
    I won't let another moment slip away

    I hold on, trying to hold on,
    I hold on, hold on, hold on,
    Hold on

    I hold on Writer/s: MICHAEL FRANTI
