The gold verandah in the dark has gone
Down to the metal man.
No better time to leave the ground
And maybe try to understand.

You gotta hold on to somethin that you believe,
Hold on to somethin that makes you feel alright.

And through the darkest times of your life
You always tried to be the one,
And now the times have made you wonder
If you ever knew what was goin on.

You gotta hold on to somethin that you believe,
Hold on to somethin that makes you feel alright....
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.

(background) alright ... alright ... alright

No use thinkin about what you aint got,
Just makes you bitter.
And as you speak, everything that you say
Goes out on the big transmitter.

You gotta hold on to somethin that you believe,
Hold on to somethin that makes you feel alright....
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.

You gotta hold on to somethin that you believe,
Hold on to somethin that makes you feel alright....
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.

Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.
