about

This is a song about holding on. Too many people seem all too eager to let go because letting go is often easier than holding on. Then after the bridges have been burnt, we hold so gently the ghosts of our loved ones in our empty hands. We talk to the spaces where they used to be as if they are still there. We don't realize that love until we have lost it.

lyrics

Don't push me I'm trying.
Yes, I'm doing the best I can.
I'm living the good life.
On an island, an island in the sand.
And I wish I knew the way
To do this every day
To live my life this way.
But the moment it disappears is when I see it.

Don't let this go away. We've got to hold on to this feeling.
Don't let me fly away. We've got to hold on, hold on, hold on

And I will hold onto you
Through your joy and pain through all your scars and stains
We'll be living the good life
Through everything that comes loves will sustain.
And I'll push you away and you'll push me away but you don't want me to go away.
Because the moment I disappear is when you see me.

Don't let me go away
We've got to hold on to this feeling
Don't let me fly away
We've got to hold on, hold on, hold on ....

We've got to hold onto something
While the world around is falling to pieces (can't feel the ground)
We've got to hold onto something while everyone else is letting go (can't feel the ground)
Hold onto me and I'll hold onto you
Because I'll be the one who sees you

Don't let me go away
We've got to hold on to this feeling
Don't let me fly away
We've got to hold on, hold on, hold on ....
