[Verse 1]
Watching the minute hand
Frozen solid not moving
Still we believe we can
But we're afraid of losing
Watching from over here
It's hardly worth competing
I'm almost out of here
While breaking a heart that's beating
Just as I start giving up
I'm not backing up
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night
[Verse 2]
I climbed up on a tree
To get a new perspective
If love is worth the time
The price is being rejected
Just as I start falling down
I turned this around
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night
[Bridge]
Hold on til I'm with you
All I've got to give you
All my fears are slowly fading to never know
Yes I start running running running running!
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
(Believe that this is the night)
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night

    I think this means that to love someone you have to be you nobody will love you compleetley untill your yourself and when you find the heart that belongs to you its got a warm glow or a "light" where you cant see untill night you have to be paishent but never give up on the one you love

    The meaning to this song is that even when things get hard, that gives you no reason to just give up. This song shows that when your scared dont let it get to you. I love this song because i can relate to it so well. When i listen to hold on 'til the night, i think about life and its meaning, i think when things are going wrong get a new perspective and when you feel like your falling turn your self around. No fight is too big.

    Its more on battle inside... Life sometimes is helpless, but there's a voice whispering you never hope less... That's what moving us... Run into the light means being guided to wherever positive life leads you... Yeah, one may have fears and hurts and aches but that shouldn't wall you up... Instead find your strength from your weakness... Most importantly, have faith in urself...
