Hold On

Copyright 1989 Daniel E. Biemer

When you're lonely and you need a friend
And you keep on thinking that you're near the end
When you find that every word you say
Keeps coming out sounding like an old cliche
 
Hold on to the strength that lies deep inside you
Hold on to the loving in your heart
Hold on to the feeling and keep believing
Hold on, hold on...
 
When you really don't know what to do
And it seems the world is coming down on you
When you try to get behind the mask
And you tell your friends but they only laugh
 
Hold on to the strength that lies deep inside you
Hold on to the loving in your heart
Hold on to the feeling and keep believing
Hold on, hold on...
 
Keep your head above the water
Don't let go of the lifeline
Keep your head above the water
Don't go down for the third time
 
Well we know you're torn apart inside
But you put it into words and it just sounds trite
It's the weekend and you're all alone
And you need a love that you can call your own 
 
Hold on to the strength that lies deep inside you
Hold on to the loving in your heart
Hold on to the feeling and keep believing
Hold on, hold on...
 
Keep your head above the water
Don't let go of the lifeline
Keep your head above the water
Don't go down for the third time
