Hold on, hold out, keep a hold on strong
The money's in and the bets are down
You won't hold out long
They say you'll fall in no time at all
But you know they're wrong but known it all along

Yeah, hold on, hold out, keep a hold on still
If you don't see what your love is worth no one ever will
You've done your time on the bottom line and it ain't no thrill
There's got to be something more, keep a hold on still
You know what it is you're waiting for
Now you just hold on, hold on, hold out, hold on

Give up your heart and you lose your way
Trusting another to feel that way
Give up your heart and you'll find yourself
Living for something in somebody else
Sometimes you wonder what happens to love
Sometimes the touch of a friend is enough

Hold a place for the human race and keep it open wide
Give it time to fall or climb, let the time decide
Sometimes you wonder what's in this for you
But you wait and you see 'cause that's all you can do
Just to hold on, hold on, hold out, hold on

For the countless souls beaten by their goals
Keep a hold on now
And the ones betrayed by the deals they made
Keep a hold on, keep a hold on
If you hold your ground, it'll turn around
Keep a hold somehow

Hold on, hold out, keep a hold on tight
Tonight's the night, wake up and turn on the light
You fight, you're right, it's gonna take all your might

You're a hold out, well, I'm a hold out too
But it took me all this time to figure out
Something you already knew
Will love be true? Can I pull you through?
How long? How strong? Some things depend on you

See, I always figured I was gonna meet somebody here
And I don't know why, why should love suddenly come down
And just sweep me away? I want to fly
But there are so many things in my way
Anyway, I guess you wouldn't know unless I told you
I, I love you, and just look at yourself
I mean, what else would I do?

Hold on, keep a hold on
Hold on, keep a hold on
Hold on, keep a hold on
