Placebo – Hold On To Me lyrics

Who let the cat out of the bag
Who told the world that I was older
Who laughed at all I had
Who said the race was over

I am a small and gentle man who
Carries the world upon his shoulders
Kindly lend a helping hand
Come over

And hold on to me, hold on to me, hold on to me, Hold ooonn

My behaviour is hard to understand When I'm
Like a phone with no connection
But I'm still doing all I can
To try to get me some redemption
I'm kneedeep in sinking sand

Crying out for your attention
Kindly lend a helping hand
For once defy convention

And hold on to me, hold on to me, hold on to me, Hold ooonn
And hold on to me, hold on to me, hold on to me, Hold ooonn
