lyrics

8. HOLD UP

If I hold up
If I lean strong against the wind when the breeze blows me down upon my back and I fight upright again
If I hold up
If I smile wide when they offend
If I go against the grain enough I know it will one day soon smoothen if i hold up

And it’s more than just a problem, it’s more than just a whim
I can see you never cared about me even though you say you did
I’m not impressed by those with power, I’m not impressed by those who grin when I hold up
When I hold up
If I hold up

Now, if I hold up I’m gonna let some light come in
I’m gonna hold it by its throat and ask where it wants me to begin
If I hold up when my fabric is wearing thin
When I’m hanging by the thread I let tangle up in competence, if I hold up

I’m gonna scratch and claw for solace
I’m gonna let forgiveness in
I’m gonna try to let it hold me
I’m gonna try to let it win
I don’t want to carry grudges, but I feel I’m forced to live under them until I hold up
Until I hold up

And I’m best when I’m a martyr, but there is no one following until I hold up
If I hold up
If I hold up.
