Someone cries and it washes the street with tears
But when they are mine, they collect in my head for years
Rain or shine, still I'm standing on all I said
'Cause it's in my soul, carry on when the feeling's dead

But if you can't hold on
Let it go and come back in your heart
And if you can't hold on, maybe it's not time for you
And if you can't hold on, on your very last try
I'll be there in the morning to pull you through

Someone dies late at night and I never know
And even if I did, so afraid of the face I'd show
I feel trapped and enslaved to this dark contrast
Need a feeling now, give me something that's going to last

But if you can't hold on
Let it go and come back in your heart
And if you can't hold on, maybe it's not time for you
And if you can't hold on, on your very last try
I'll be there in the morning to pull you through

I want to be free, I want to be free
I want to be free, yes, I want to be free
I want to be free, yes, I want to be free
Oh, I want to be free, yes, I want to be free

You say you want to be free but you can't fool me
You say you want to be free, oh, but you can't fool me
You say you want to be free but you can't fool me
You say you want to be free, oh, but you can't fool me

Oh, and if you can't hold on
You can't hold on
(Can't hold on)
You can't hold on
(Can't hold on)
I'll be there, I'll be there

Oh, and if you can't hold on
Let it go and come back in your heart
And if you can't hold on, maybe it's not time for you
And if you can't hold on, on your very last try
I'll be there so you know that you're not alone
