hold on lyrics – carrie newcomer

i’ve been drivin’ down this road
five times this week
it’s almost as if these farm fields
could speak to me

a hungry lion’s been prowlin’
outside my door these days
and though i shake my fist at it
it doesn’t go away

but hold on

there’s a place beside your heart
right below your collar bone
where i have laid down my head
and rested like i’ve never known

i stayed there for a while or so
it broke my heart to see you go

hold on, hold on, hold on
hold on, hold on, hold, hold on

life is short, my dreams are made
and the bargain’s struck and the price is paid
i have walked a fragile line
and i have heard an inner voice call

i called you up, i woke you up
i ask you could i try anymore

so hold on, hold on

well, there are those who would put you down
smilin’ b*st*rds who would keep you down
but this gentle source who will lift you up
and i have heard the voice of god sayin’

hold on, hold on, hold on
hold on, hold on
