Afterlife – Holding On lyrics
[Verse 1]
It started with a simple look in her eyes
Caught me by surprise, I’m along for the ride, yeah
I didn’t know what I was gettin' into
We were living in the moment, didn’t matter to you (Matter to you)
And as the time went on
I should have seen all of the signs that something was wrong
But it was too good to be true so I just sat there and thought
What would I do without you?
What would I do without you?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Dragged me through hell for so long
I thought I needed you
But I found out the hard way
(I found out the hard way)

[Chorus]
You come and go like seasons but you never seem to change
Yeah, I think the hurt is fading but I can’t forget your name
It cuts me up like daggers every time I think I’m wrong
'Cause the hardest part of letting go is trying to hold on

[Verse 2]
Can't help but feel like I’m used and abused
Everything to gain and nothing to lose
And in the back of my head, never forget what you said
All I ever did was fill the void in your bed
And now the truth comes out
Everything that everybody warned me about
You set fire to my soul, burned me up
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Dragged me through hell for so long
I thought you needed me
You’ll find out the hard way
Nothing's ever as it seems

[Chorus]
You come and go like seasons but you never seem to change
Yeah, I think the hurt is fading but I can’t forget your name
It cuts me up like daggers every time I think I’m wrong
'Cause the hardest part of letting go is trying to hold on

[Bridge]
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
You left me to burn in the fire of us

[Chorus]
You come and go like seasons but you never seem to change
Yeah, I think the hurt is fading but I can’t forget your name
It cuts me up like daggers every time I think I’m wrong
'Cause the hardest part of letting go is trying to hold on

[Outro]
I’m trying to hold on
I’m trying to hold on
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
You left me to burn in the fire of us
