Hold On

Album: These People (2016)
  • (Hold on, people hold on)
    (Hold on, people hold on)

    I'm in there superstitious
    And life can be so vicious
    Learning on your own
    Can turn your heart to stone

    Apocalyptic mind
    My head was full of sorrow
    Whispered words of logic
    Things I need to learn

    I feel like we are the only ones alive
    I feel like we are the only ones alive

    So hold on, hold on, hold on
    Hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
    But I know that we can make it
    You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)
    You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)

    Until you get some pepper spray
    And water canons on the way
    Fighting on your own
    Can turn your heart to stone

    And truth is on the march again
    Wipe those tears away
    Apocalyptic mind
    She soothes me with her soul

    I feel like we are the only ones alive
    I feel like we are the only ones alive

    So hold on, hold on, hold on
    Hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
    But I know that we can make it
    You better hold on
    So hold on, hold on, hold on
    You better hold on, you know there ain't no lot of time
    But I know that we can make it
    You better hold on (hold on)
    You better hold on (people hold on)
    You better hold on (hold on)
    You better hold on (people hold on)
    You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)

    I feel like we are the only ones alive
    I feel like we are the only ones alive
    I feel like we are the only ones alive
    I feel like we are the only ones alive

    Well you better hold on
    You better hold on, hold on
    You better hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
    But I know that we can make it

    You better hold on (so hold on)
    You better hold on (hold on, hold on)
    You better hold on (hold on, hold on)
    You know there ain't a lot of time (hold on, hold on)
    But I know that we can make it (hold on, hold on)

    Until you get some pepper spray (hold on, hold on)
    The water canons on the way (hold on, hold on)
    Apocalyptic mind (hold on, hold on)
    She soothes me with her soul (hold on, hold on)

    I feel like we are the only ones alive (hold on, hold on)
    Apocalyptic mind (hold on, hold on)
    I feel like we are the only ones alive Writer/s: Richard Ashcroft
