The War On Drugs – Holding On lyrics
[Verse 1]
Once I was alive and I could feel
I was holding on to you
And I redefined the way I learned to talk, it's only human
I went down a crooked highway
I went all outside the line
I've been rejected, now the light has turned and I'm out of time

[Chorus 1]
Ain't no way I'm gonna last
Hiding in the seams, I can't move the past
Feel like I'm about to crash
Riding on my line, I keep keeping on, yeah, ooh

[Verse 2]
Once we were apart and I could see red
Never trying to turn back time
Never meant to bring my pain into the frame, and into your life
Now I'm headed down a different road, yeah
Can we walk it side by side?
Is an old memory just another way of saying goodbye?

[Chorus 2]
Ain't no way I'm gonna last
Hiding in the seams, I can't move the past
Feel like I'm about to crack
Riding the same line, I keep keeping on, yeah, ooh

[Bridge]
But he never gonna change, he never gonna mind
I keep moving on the path, yeah, holding on to mine
When you talk about the past, what are we talking of?
Did I let go too fast? Was I holding on too long?

Ain't no truth to someone's lie, as silent as the sea
I've been holding on too long? But it's right in front of me
Ain't no moon is gonna cast, shadows on my scene
I keep moving with these changes, yeah, ooh

[Outro]
Heart or hope
Heart or hope
Heart or hope
Heart or hope
