Written by Travis Tritt & Pat Terry

Baby close that suitcase you've been packin'
Just sit down and talk to me a while
I know you tried to tell me what was lackin'
But I guess I must have missed it by a mile
Well this time girl I swear to you I'll listen
Help me understand where I went wrong
It's hard to find myself in this position
*Scared* I'll go crazy once your gone

Chorus:
Help me hold on...to what we had
Once our love was strong, it can be again
You said it takes two, to make love last
You were right all along so help me hold on

What have I got do to make it better?
What have I got to do to make you see
That even though I promised you forever
I never knew how hard that would be
I realize I took your love for granted
But I've learned that love worth havin' don't come free
And I'll pay any price it takes to keep you
Satisfied and stayin here with me...

Chorus (2 x's)

You were right all along
So help me hold on

    This song mean so much to me. I think that when it was wrote it was about a relationship that was almost over. Man telling woman that he is sorry for not listening to her, and his promise to listen to what she is saying this time. He is begging her for her help. Asking for her to open her eyes and realize that he loves her and that life sometimes get in the way. He is willing to do whatever it takes for her to stay in his life. Remeber the good times and what they had!
