Holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on to something true
To what feels good to you
Gotta be strong, gotta be strong, gotta be strong
Don't let it get away from you
Do whatcha gotta do
I know it gets hard sometimes
To find a little piece of mind
Gotta stay focused, gotta stay strong
To all my people, hold on
To what you have inside
I know it hurts but don't cry
Life is gonna go on
With or without you, hold on
Holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on to something true
To what feels good to you
Gotta be strong, gotta be strong, gotta be strong
Don't let it get away from you
Do whatcha gotta do
Taking care of home and family
Sometimes it's hard to keep your sanity
Thinkin' what about my fantasies
Will my dreams come true
If I stay emotionless
Release myself from all the stress
Don't blame it all on you
To myself, I'll be true
We trade in our stability
For all types of insecurities
Now tell me what is to become
Of me
If I let myself stress
Every time life throws me a test
Holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on to something true
To what feels good to you
Gotta be strong, gotta be strong, gotta be strong
Don't let it get away from you
Do whatcha gotta do (Repeat)
We trade in our stability
For all types of insecurities
Now tell me what is to become
Of me
If I let myself stress
Every time life throws me a test
Holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on to something true
To what feels good to you
Gotta be strong, gotta be strong, gotta be strong
Don't let it get away from you
Do whatcha gotta do
Vamp Out
