HOLD UP - LYRICS

If I hold up
If I lean strong against the wind
When the breeze blows me down upon my back
I'll fight upright again

If I hold up
If I smile wide when they offend
And go against the grain enough
I know 
One day it will smoothen 
If i hold up

And it’s more than just a problem
It’s more than just a whim
Admit you never cared about me
Even though you say you did

I’m not impressed by those with power 
Or impressed by those who grin
When I hold up
Then I hold up
If I hold up

Now, if I hold up 
I’m gonna let some light come in
I’m gonna bow my head and simply ask 
Will you help me forgive them

If I hold up
When my fabric is wearing thin
When I’m hanging by a thread
And get tangled up in confidence
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
Because I don’t want to carry grudges
When I’m forced to live under them
If 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
