This world, this world is cold
But you don't, you don't have to go
You're feeling sad you're feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
You're mother's gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bare

But we all bleed the same way as you do
We all have the same things to go through

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know

Your days you say they're way too long
And your nights you can't sleep at all (hold on)
And you're not sure what you're waiting for
But you don't want to no more
And you're not sure what you're looking for but you don't want to no more

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know

Don't stop looking you're one step closer
Don't stop searching it's not over... hold on

What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what you're doing to me?
Go ahead... what are you waiting for?

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know

Don't stop looking you're one step closer
Don't stop searching it's not over...

Hold on... if you feel like letting go
Hold on... it gets better than you know... hold on

    This song greatly dipicts much of my experience as I struggled through my high school years with anxiety of chronic depression. Being fully recovered from suicidal thoughs, I thank God and my lucky star to be living today!...I held on when I felt like letting go. I find this song to be quite inspirational!
    Thank You Good Charlotte, -Life Yang-

    Thankyou so much for this music,
    I have suffered with major depression a couple of times, I lost my best friend to depression at the age of 16 and come so close to death with several attempts at suicide. this song is really inspirational I'm going through a rough time now but this song is one of my favs. If only people new just how much it means for others to care so much depression kills.
    When you have depression and are feeling that low that you wanna let go you feel like there is no one, I really hope that one day more people will know how important it is to make sure those suffering know your their and that you care. People need to know ...So many people are lost :( .
