styles: Folk Rock/Indie Rock
length: 3:53
One thing about all this clock punching
Brings back meaning to the weekend
The heat gets shut off at midnight
Noises seem louder with the lights off

You eat and sleep and dream
And ride your bike through the slipstream
On footpaths that weren't built for bikes
Let alone people
They're full of trucks and cars
And dotted with topless bars
This land that once was promised ours
Treats you like a stranger

Hold on, my love
Hold on

If only for that cloud
That burst its skin and cried out loud
And sent us running with the crowd
The concert ruined
The cute smiles of young boys beckon
If only for 9 seconds
I know you're lonely
So if only for the 'if only'

Hold on, my love
Hold on

Oh please try to rest those peepers
You're jealous of easy sleepers
Try not to think too hard
You might break something
Sometimes my biggest fear is
A dressing room between two mirrors
Watching myself disappear
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever

Hold on, my love
Hold on

Hold on
