Holding On

I was thinking about a song today and that I really like and though it's simple I find it so profound. Here are the lyrics and the website. You can even listen to a sound bite of the music (MP3). Just to warn you it is very Country and you might need an aquired taste to endure the Twang.


Holding On
by Cherie Call from her Album, Beneath These Stars

If I had to move away, if I had to pack a box todayThere are some things I'd have to let go before I headed down theinterstate. My favorite dress that doesn't fit anymore, and all the papers in my old desk drawer Bad habits and old grudges, I'd take them all to the second hand store. But there's a list of things I'd have to take with meNo matter how long this winding road turns out to be
I'm holding on to the valentinesAnd letters I've read a thousand times that say"We believe in you," and "never give up your dreams."I'm holding on to my own backyardI hope that I can fit it all in my carWhen the whole world's letting goI'll keep holding on
You can't keep a harvest moon, it fades away all too soonAnd even the trees let go of their leaves much quicker than you'd ever choose So many people say goodbye, I see those teardrops in their eyes And I start to wonder how I'd live without loveAnd I'm glad I never have to tryCause hardly anything lasts forever anymoreBut there will always be a few things that I'm gonna keep fighting for
I'm holding on to my father's loveAnd my mother's faith in God aboveShe says "We believe in you," and "never give up your dreams."I'm holding on to my true love's handAnd I know that he will always understandWhen the whole world's letting goI'll keep holding on
Shooting stars and red balloonsIce cream cones and breezy JunesI love them all, I hold them dear, but they so quickly disappearThese are the things I'll keep with me, no matter where my life will lead me A loving word, a gentle kiss, I need nothing more than this
I'm holding on to the valentinesAnd letters I've read a thousand times that say"We believe in you," and "never give up your dreams."I'm holding on to my own backyardI hope that I can fit it all in my carWhen the whole world's letting goI'll keep holding onI'm holding on to my father's loveAnd my mother's faith in God aboveShe says "We believe in you," and "never give up your dreams."I'm holding on to my true love's handAnd I know that he will always understandWhen the whole world's letting goI'll keep holding on
