lyrics

There was a time when all of this was the best night of my life.
But lose your connection to the community,
and stand desperately outside,
watching and unwelcome.
Have you lost what's real?

Hold on.
Hold on, even though what separates is strong.
Hold on, hold on,
and someday when what separates is gone,
you'll know love's strong.

Happiness is nothing if not shared.
I'm waiting to share but holding out for the right one.
I keep it in a pile marked, "currently good",
and if you asked me, well I certainly would.
I can no longer hold this
confession.

Hold on.
Hold on, even though what separates is strong.
Hold on, hold on,
and someday all that separates will be gone.

This wouldn't need to be so hard
if I could just get you to say yes.
But as it stands, it's just so sad.
It's just so sad. It's just so fucking sad.
And when I woke up- or, when I wake up,
I'll knock on your front door.
I will bring the shake up
and give you a hard time about the time we spent apart,

because there was a time when all of this was the best night of my life.
I keep in it a pile marked, "currently good",
and if you asked me, well I certainly would.
I can no longer hold this.

Hold on.
Hold on, even though what separates is strong.
Hold on, hold on,
and someday all that separates will be gone.

So be anchored in that which is changeless, faceless, nameless.
May I be a protector for those.
And if you reach up,
reach your hand out,
from that hole you've been stuck in,
mine is right there.
I'm laying over the edge to pull you up,
so hold on.
