It's been a long time coming that I had to say
When I wake up in the morning all I do is pray
For some guidance and protection on the streets today
And an answer to the questions I ask everyday

So tell me why do the birds that used to fly here
Tell me why do they come to die here?
And all the kids that used to run here
Tell me why do they load their guns here?

I remember in the days when
We were one heart, no need to defend
I just wrap my arms around you
Don't give up, this song is for you

Hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I say hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I hold on, I'm trying to hold on
I hold on, hold on, hold on

From the tops of the buildings to the streets below
Between the Wall Street banks and the empty homes
Between the lines of the people standing all in a row
There's a crack in the gutter where a flower grows

Reminding me that everything is possible
Yeah, reminding me that nothing is impossible
You gotta live for the one that you love you know
You gotta love for the life that you live you know

Singing hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I'll sing hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I hold on, I'm trying to hold on
I hold on, I'm trying to hold on

Until the morning comes again
I will remain with you my friend
And we will ride until the sun
Goes to the place where it begun
And we will live to laugh and cry another day

Don't let nobody ever tell you that it couldn't be done
Don't let nobody ever tell you that we couldn't be one
Don't let nobody ever tell you that it shouldn't be sung
Don't let nobody ever tell you you're the only one

Singing hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I say hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, I hold on
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, I hold on
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

I'm just trying to hold on
Trying to hold on
Trying to hold on

I say hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I say hey, hey, hey
No matter how life is today
There's just one thing that I got to say
I won't let another moment slip away

I hold on, I'm trying to hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
