I see you standing here
But you're so far away
Starving for your attention
You don't even know my name

You're going through so much
But I know that I could be the one to hold you

[Chorus:]
Every single day
I find it hard to say
I could be yours alone
You will see someday
That all along the way
I was yours to hold
I was yours to hold

I see you walking by
Your hair always hiding your face

I wonder why you've been hurting
I wish I had some way to say

You're going through so much
Don't you know that I could be the one to hold you

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I'm stretching but you're just out of reach
You should know
I'm ready when you're ready for me
And I'm waiting for the right time
For the day I catch your eye
To let you know
That I'm yours to hold

Every single day
I find it hard to say
I could be yours alone (yours alone)
You will see someday
That all along the way
I was yours to hold
I was yours to hold

Every single day
I find it hard to say
I could be yours alone (your so far away)
You will see someday
That all along the way
I was yours to hold
I was yours to hold

[Altro:]
I'm stretching but you're just out of reach
I'm ready when you're ready for me

    I lovvve this song. I like to think that the person the artist loves is emo-punk but really the song conveys hurt. Its so cute and so personal it sounds like youre reading out of a journal. The artist wants his crush to see that he has always been standing there ready when needed, though it may be someday when she realizes it.

    There is a girl that is going through so much pain in her life, and he wants to come to her rescue and hold her, and take care of her, but she doesn't know who he is. He notices her pain, and want for attention, and he wants to take her pain away and give her the attention that she needs. And he could love her truly.

    I think that this song is about god telling you that he knows you're hurting and you need someone to hold you. He's also saying that he knows when the time is right that he will hold you and guide you through your difficulties. We are lucky that there is a god to help us through our difficulties no matter what religion you are. God tries to answer our prayers, but sometimes he tells us, "now it's your turn. "

    I think this song is talking about how god is always there for you especially when your hurting and struggling. He's yours to hold and you are his. He's just waiting for you to come to him. He'll be there when your ready for him to hold you :) at least that's what I get from hearing this song.

    I used this song to help me with my crush and eventually he asked me out I kept thinking everyday I would ask him out but soon he realized we were meant for each other and I thought back to the song and said thank you! I love this song!
