[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

    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 don't 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.

    Hold on 'til the night means, to me, to never give up. The song is beautifully written. It's my favourite song. It's very inspirational. The first time I heard it, I was going through a hard period in time, and the song told me to hold on, to never let go. Basically what he's trying to get through is that no matter what, you can do it. This song gave me hope when I was at rock bottom, when I was hopeless. This song is truly amazing, just like the boy who wrote it. He's telling us that when no one else belives in us, he will.

    Exact words from grey: this song is very meaningful to me. When I went into the studio to write this record I was kinda sad. I was away from home, missed my friends, and I needed some courage. So I went into the studio and told myself that I was going to write a song that was about gaining confidence. And this was the result. I love the lyric, "running to the light, get out of your own way, not afraid to fight, believing what you say. " I am telling my fans to not be afraid. Whenever I listen to this song I instantly feel happy and strong.

    I think this song is a song to give hope to those that may be struggling with not fitting in or believe that they have to change in order to be accepted and the message I get from this is that no matter how bad your situation is, you just have to wait for a little bit then your situation won't be so bad if you believe it won't be.
