I Just Keep Holding On

 

All of my friends

They've been so good to me

They all know you left on your own

 

When I don't come in

They all lie for me

And when I'm worthless honey they carry me home

 

            They see me dyin'

            Over memories and

            Honey they all know

            That I'm fallin' apart

            They shake me hard and say “let it go”

 

 

                                    But I just keep holding on

                                    While it pulls me down

                                    Yeah I just keep holing on

                                    While it drags me ‘round

                                    And there ain't no reason to hang on

                                    I know that it only does me wrong

                                    But I just keep holding on

 

 

                                                Like a fool holds on to a bottle

                                                That he knows will kill him in time

 

 

                                    I just keep holding on

                                    While it pulls me down

                                    Yeah I just keep holing on

                                    While it drags me ‘round

                                    And there ain't no reason to hang on

                                    I know that it only does me wrong

                                    But I just keep holding on
