Holdin' on barely holdin' on I know if I led off you'll be gone
------ that's holdin' you here and I'm just barely barely holdin' on
I never will forget that feelin' you said love is gone you were leavin'
The hand on the clock is going around and I was in the water going down
Holdin' on barely holdin' on...
[ steel ]
Now every hour brings you closer to goin' and I already feel the hurt of growin'
You're gonna leave that mighty lonely girl
How much longer can I hold you in my world
Cause I'm just holdin' on...
Yeah I'm just barely barely holdin' on
