"Hold On" ~by Skye Pixton

I know we've been through it
You & I, what a hassle
You were a broken child
I was raised in a castle
where there were birds chirping and fairies all around watching after me
so then... who are we?

Hold on to the meaning of the silent moments
Hold on to the meaning of a broken romance
Hold on to the pieces of my heart when I first said...
"rest your head with mine"

Cuz if you're staying then I could take your world of broken dreams
and if you're praying then I could hold your hand, love, as you plead
and if I'm strong enough, then I could walk away, and I'd just say
Goodbye
Okay

I spent all our time
lamenting your childhood
and what it's made of you
and what you've made of me
and even if I try I cannot really make myself believe
you'd change... enough... for me

Hold on to the meaning of the silent moments
Hold on to the meaning of a broken romance
Hold on to the pieces of my heart when I first said...
"rest your head with mine"

Cuz if you're staying then I could take your world of broken dreams
and if you're praying then I could hold your hand, love, as you plead
and if I'm strong enough, then I could walk away, and I'd just say
Goodbye
Okay

Who am I to say
after love, after all
that this is not the way
that I find what I want
And I have plagued you with my tryings-to-move-on, and I have failed
and you have longed for my whole love and now you're gone, I understand

Hold on to the meaning of the silent moments
Hold on to the meaning of a broken romance
Hold on to the pieces of my heart when I first said...
"rest your head with mine"

Cuz if you're staying then I could take your world of broken dreams
and if you're praying then I could hold your hand, love, as you plead
but I'm not strong enough, that I could walk away, and say Goodbye
This time
Okay
Fine
