holdin’ on to you lyrics – brad paisley

i’m holdin’ on to you
when i close my eyes
you’re still in my arms
and we never said goodbye
and it’s all that i can do
to go on with my life
but that’s supposed to be the reason
why i’m here tonight

in a downtown restaurant with a friend of a friend
well she sure likes to talk and i ain’t heard a single word she’s said

[chorus]
oh, but every now and then i nod
and i pretend to pay attention
and i say things like, “uh huh”
and, “yeah, you’re right” and “are you kiddin'”
and i laugh when it seems
like the right thing to do
it’s hard to hold a conversation
holdin’ on to you

i’d give anything
just to hear your voice
or see you look at me and smile
oh but what i miss the most

is holdin’ on to you
’cause here i am tonight
starin’ at a woman
who’s the last thing on my mind

[chorus]

when i close my eyes
you’re still in my arms
and we never said goodbye
