Lyrics

Hold On
By Antara Blasius and Delilah Poupore © 2002

Little boy, I see you crying when you?re hurt
Little boy, you got a big bear with a pink skirt
Well, you better hold on, hold on, hold on
That bear might be the only one who knows what crying means
So, hold on.

Little boy, you met a boy outside your fence
Little boy, you said you?d always be best friends
Well, you better hold on, hold on, hold on
That boy might be the only one who knows what friendship means
So, hold on.

Chorus
Cuz the world will try to tell you: give it up
And the world will try to tell you: be tough
I hope that you wont listen, even if they call you names
And maybe in your lifetime, you will see a change

Bridge
Bombs bursting in air, boys fight and they die
Sent to kill for revenge or oil supplies
You?ll be sold a line about soldier?s might
But boy don?t go gently into that night

Little boy, when there?s no bear anymore
Oh, don?t let them send you off to war.
Tell them: hold on, hold on, hold on
This world is gonna need a man who knows what loving means
Yeah, this world is gonna need a man who knows what loving means
So, hold on

Chorus
Cuz the world will try to tell you: give it up
And the world will try to tell you: be tough
I hope that you wont listen, even if they call you names
And maybe in your lifetime, you will see a change
And maybe in your lifetime, you will see a change
And maybe in your lifetime, you will?be the change
