Hold You Now

Album: Father of the Bride (2019)
  • I know the reason why you think you gotta leave
    Promises of future glory don't make a case for me
    I did my best and all the rest is hidden by the clouds
    I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now

    Leaving on your wedding day
    All calm and dressed in white
    All I'll keep's the memory of one last crooked night
    The pews are getting filled up
    The organ's playing loud
    I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now

    (Alright)

    God, yu tekem laef blong mi
    Mi mi givim nao long yu
    Bak mi giv evride
    Blong leftemap nem blong yu

    I know the reason why you think I ought to stay
    Funny how you're telling me on my wedding day
    Crying in those rumpled sheets
    Like someone's 'bout to die
    You just watch your mouth when talking 'bout the father of the bride

    Why's your heart grown heavy, boy, when things were feeling light?
    Turning this June morning into some dark judgment night
    This ain't the end of nothing much, it's just another round
    I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now

    God, yu tekem laef blong mi
    Mi mi givim nao long yu
    Bak mi giv evride
    Blong leftemap nem blong yu
