What happened to a mother's love?
What happened to your daddy's pride?
Know you always had enough
Know they were right by your side

Happened to that ball of fire
Got out on that open road
Now nothin' but your own desire
Lighten up this heavy load

Hold on, hold on, hold on

Know you didn't plan for this
But that's the way it always starts
Just lookin' for a little kick
Instead you bought a broken heart

Now you have to build a bridge
Only you can walk across
Wear the truth until it fits
Pay the price and bear the loss

Hold on, hold on, hold on

Once you were a little kid
Working on a great big plan
You threw away the simple joys
Now you have to take a stand

A battle's raging in your head
You wish you didn't have to fight
Just hold onto my hand instead
Another day goes by tonight

What happened to your mother's love?
What happened to your daddy's pride?
Way down deep inside your blood
Help you through this lonely ride

Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on
