Well I've been beat down to the sound of laughter, but I'll be okay.
And you can keep calling me your beautiful disaster, all damn day.

See I hold your heart like a part of me baby.
It's the only thing that's stoppin' me from fallin' down.
Yeah you're the harmony that keeps me sound.

So now if I stay, or if I go.
I'll always hold your heart of Gold.
For if I stray, if I'm not strong.
You'll be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.

Burn me down and dance around the ashes, I'll be okay.
'Cause I go up like an airplane when it crashes, all damn day.

See I hold your heart like a part of me baby.
It's the only thing that's stoppin' me from fallin' down.
Yeah you're the harmony that keeps me sound.

So now if I stay, or if I go.
I'll always hold your heart of Gold.
For if I stray, if I'm not strong.
You'll be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.

Never let me go.
I'm not good lonely without you, oh.

So you can keep calling me your beautiful disaster, I'll be okay.

So now if I stay, or if I go.
I'll always hold your heart of Gold.
For if I stray, if I'm not strong.
You'll be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.
Be my strength to carry on.

    This song is about that one person who will never let you fall. That person who, if someone pushes you onto the ground (figuratively and literally), will pick you back up. It's never letting go of that person who is your reason to carry on.
    Another amazing, inspirational song from hedley.
