Diana Ross – If We Hold On Together lyrics

Don't lose your way
With each passing day
Youve come so far
Don't throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope & glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Somebody is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
Well dream about the sun
In the dark well feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and i

    This song's meaning to me? It is a beautiful song that generally tells people of faith to hold on or stay strong together.

    First, the song tells us not to lose our way or throw our faith away. Then, it tells us to be strong, or hold on, together. And then it talks about the Light; the Light of our Lord that is always with us. (In the dark we'll feel the Light; warm our hearts, everyone.) Last but not least, it tells us that our dreams will always see us through. In other words, with our Lord, nothing will ever be lost, and that includes our dreams. And the song ends with a beautiful message that says our lives will not be dark and cloudy forever; the clouds will part (or "roll by" as in the lyrics) and our sky will be clear again.

    Such beautiful song, filled with beautiful messages inspired by, I believe, the loving Almighty God. It never failed to move me to tears every time I hear it since I was a wee child, because my heart always finds peace and comfort in those beautiful messages.

    Many thanks to James Horner and Will Jennings for writing and composing this beautiful song, and many thanks to Diana Ross for performing this song so beautifully. May God bless them greatly, and may God bless us all.

    When I was a kid, this song always make me cry whenever I listen to it without knowing why. The music. The lyrics. So heart melting, touches the soul. And now that I'm 18 I realized the true meaning of this song to me, which is that. There is someone special who I can share it with someday, at the right place and at the right moment, in god's loving will ♥ yellehs.

    Never ever loose hope because there is something going to happen after hope it is a good happening. I am 11 years old, I only heard this song at school when we were all having a translating contest the one who wins will sing at the Araw ng Wika so my teacher in Filipino said the true meaning and played the music video and I felt really sad my teacher said that, that song was played in a movie but I don't remember the movie so I will just tell what me and my classmates felt, they were almost crying I asked them what is the meaning of the song for you they said never loose hope while suffering because you've come so far and if you quit where will our sacrifice go to?
