He told me a heart can't smile
If it's filled with tears
Growing up I thought "it's all gone"
Now it comes back to me, again
Ghetto uniform, collect calls
That I can explain
All the things I've ruined, abandoned
They come back to me
Holdin' on together I
Try to set the night on fire
Holdin' on together I
Try to set the night on fire
He told me for those who been drowned
There is no refrain
With one & only youth, a gospel
I do what I can
Holdin' on together I
Try to set the night on fire
Holdin' on together I
Try to set the night on fire
Though I've been trying
To lose it all before it's gone
Whatever comes, a heart can't smile if it's filled with tears
Though I've been waiting
All I got to do is call
I'm diving deeper,won't you get me out of this despair
Holding on together I
Try to set the night on fire
Holding on together I
Try to set the night on fire
My happiness inside us
Has nowhere else to fall
Troubles hearing through the telephone
It is filled with tears
