about

This one is about being in a relationship that doesn't work. No matter how hard two people try, sometimes the healthiest thing to do is to just let go.

lyrics

Hold On

There’s a pane of glass
In a dollar store frame
Behind there’s a picture
Of no one I’d care to blame

I’ve got our memories
Trapped in a plastic thing
I bring them up sometimes
On a plastic screen

(chorus)
I don’t know how long
I can keep holding on
To all these little things
That meant so damn much to me
I don’t know how long
I can hold on

The moon shines
Through our kitchen window
It casts the shadow
Of the lovers we used to be
It watched us come home
Drunker than we should have been
We said some bad things
But by morning we’d let it go

(chorus)

Now that we’ve been apart
There’s no one to turn me on
There’s no one to lean on
And there’s no one to break my heart

I’ll keep fighting
For some understanding
Of what we’re supposed to be
And not just some heartfelt tragedy

(chorus)

I don’t know how long I can hold on
