holding on lyrics – david gray

“holding on”

baby now don’t look back
don’t let those feelings start
don’t let the line go slack, when you’re
pulling it all apart
how to describe the sky
or dismantle a beating heart

baby we’re holding on
here we are holding on
baby we’re holding on
to the world

seeking *ssurances
some kind of guarantee
there has to be more than this, oh now
more than the eye can see
holding the lanterns high, while we
sink with our vanity

here we are holding on
guess we’re just holding on
baby we’re holding on
to the world

now i’m gonna love you
like the spring bursts from the ground
unfurling from the ground
unfurling from the ground

faces of buildings, trees
all that is stone, inert
here in these empty streets, well it
silently does *ssert
that we are just p*ssing ghosts, honey
vapours of joy and hurt

and here we are holding on
baby we’re holding on
yes we’re just holding on
to the world
here we are holding on
baby we’re holding on
here we are holding on
yes we’re just holding on
here we are holding on
baby we’re holding on
guess we’re just holding on to the world.
