(written by natalie cole, marvin yancy and kevin yancy)

You know, of all the things in the world I'd miss

It would probably be music and love

They say you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

That's so true

Even though we still take it for granted

And I used to be like that but not anymore

'cause I found out what love really means

Love means happiness and dedication

Love will sometimes bring complications

But you must have faith and a whole lot of trust

Most of all you can never give up just

(hold on, hold on)

Hold on to your good thing, yeah

(hold on, hold on) forget about the small things

(hold on, hold on) do it for love, do it for love

And remember that love is a feeling

But it's also an action, yes

You've got to give sometime

If you want to get back some, well

And when all the king's horses

And even all the king's men

Can't put it together again

That is exactly when you've got to

(hold on, hold on) hold on to what you've got

(hold on, hold on)

It's the little things that mean alot

(hold on, hold on) do it for love, do it for love

In spite of everything, no matter what

You've got to h-o-l-d on (you gotta hold on)

Hold on, hmm, hmm, hmm, ooh, oh, oh

You're so hard headed

'cause you feel that you're right

Well, tell me how you gonna feel

In the middle of the night

All alone, all alone

I know, I know

It doesn't matter who's right or wrong

If you feel so inclined

To blame that shame on someone else

Ooh, stop and think about it

Point the finger at yourself

Ooh, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo

Hold on to your good thing (hold on)

Forget about the small (hold on) things

(hold on) and hold on

Hold on, oh hold on (hold on)

Real tight in spite of everything

Hold on (hold on)

When you feel like walking out that door
