Song Description

The song's persona is immature in his/her understanding of relationships. Questioning every instance of time as if it revolved around him or her. Then making demands to be committed but really these are cries for help out of fear and not understanding.

Story Behind the Song

Song was composed within a few months after the birth of our first son. It is sung from his perspective.

Lyrics

Hold Me
-DeSanctis
12/01/97
?Composed in the first few months after the birth of our 1st son?from his perspective?

1-I knew the moment I saw you that you were the one
To feed me the fortune but shadow the sun.
And I have awakened lately but you?re seemingly gone
[Then] I cry out for words and yet there is none.

REFRAIN 1:
Hold me, Hold me; deliver me from this restless run
Will you be there?
Hold me only if you save the promises you left undone
Crosses left to bear, meet them if you dare. I will be the one.

2-I remember the first time you held me, it carries me on.
I feared it had finished before it begun.

REFRAIN 2:
Hold me, Hold me; deliver me from this restless run
Will you be there?
Hold me only if you save the promises you left undone
Crosses left to bear, [and] I will be there.

BRIDGE:
I knew the arms that had fed me
But somehow the time has led me away, oh?

FINAL REFRAINS:
Hold me, Hold me; [deliver me from this restless run]
Will you be there?
Hold me only if you save the promises you left undone
Crosses left to bear, meet them if you dare!
[Hold me, Hold me; deliver me from this restless run]
Will you be there?
Hold me only if you save the promises you left undone
Crosses left to bear, meet them if you dare; still I?ll be left and I will be the one.
TAG:
Hold me, Hold me! I?ll be left and I will be, and I will be the one.
Hold me, Hold me! I?ll be left [and] I will be the one.
[Crosses left to bear, meet them if you dare?]
