hold on lyrics – hazel o’connor

{words & music: hazel o’connor}

h*llo old friend long time no see
except the sea between you and me
and that’s physical and that’s impenetrable

left you laughing at the dreams that i told you
now i’m laughing at the dreams that they sold me
it’s such a shame, you had to join their nasty game

[chorus 1:]
you didn’t hold on
you didn’t hold on
you didn’t hold on
to a dream,
ain’t it obscene

the silence in your room is getting me down
the thickly atmosphere descends upon the clown
who laughs no more, he broke the golden law

[chorus 2:]
he didn’t hold on
he didn’t hold on
he didn’t hold on
to the dream,
ain’t it obscene

the way they shake you, try to wake you
be a man now, be a woman now
try to shake you up, try to wake you up
be a grown up, be a sour p*ss

never mind my love, i’ll leave this for you
don’t bother calling me, maybe i’ll call you, so
stay on the scene
and i’ll stay chasing my dreams

[chorus 1]

[chorus 2]
