She sits up high surrounded by the sun
One million branches and she loves every one
Mom and dad, did you search for me?
I've been up here for so long I'm going crazy


And as the sun went down
We ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound


And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3, 2, 1, where did it go?

Now don't be crazy!
yes now of course you can stay here
Been in a touring band going on ten years
"Big deal", she said
"I guess you're official"
I only said it 'cause I know what it's like to feel

Burned out!
It gets you down
We've all been there sometimes
But tonight, I'll make you feel beautiful once again

And as the sun went down
We ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound

And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3, 2, 1, where did it go?

If I were you, I'd put that away
See, you're just wasted and
Thinking about the past again
Darling, you'll be okay


And she said
"If you were me, you'd do the same
'Cause I can't take anymore
I'll draw the shades and close the door
Everything's not alright, and I would rather"


And as the sun went down
We ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound

And as we owned this night
I'll put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
Tell me where did it go?

    "a girl i used to date once told me that her parents neglected her as a child. She remembered climbing this tree in her backyard and hiding from them just to see if they would look for her, or even notice that she was gone. I always thought it was such a sad story and i wrote this song for her. It also talks about the ups and downs in a relationship that we've had recently. "

    The title wasn't about the girl. A fan committed suicide and in the video she left, she said "I couldn't hold on until May" which was her planned suicide month. Her friends knew that she was a PTV fan, sent the video to Vic, he saw it and titled it for her.

    "A girl I used to date once told me that her parents neglected her as a child.

I always thought it was such a sad story and I wrote this song for her. It also talks about the ups and downs in a relationship that we've had recently. She used to try and commit suicide every year in May, hence the title of the song, 'Hold on till May'. One time she tried and no one could save her. I never thought I could love someone so much and have them taken away from me." Vic Fuentes

    It's a song about suicide and looking for someone to save you, 'Cause I can't take anymore It's about wanting caring parents, mom and dad did you search for me. It describes how suicide slowly tears you apart from the inside out, I've been up here so long I'm going crazy.
