HOLD ON HOLD OUT  - Jackson Browne, Craig Doerge

    Hold on hold out, keep a hold on strong
    The money's in and the bets are down
    You won't hold out long
    They say you'll fall in no time at all
    But you know they're wrong
    Known it all along

    Hold on hold out, keep a hold on still
    If you don't see what your love is worth
    No one ever will
    You've done your time on the bottom line
    And it ain't no thrill
    There's got to be something more
    Keep a hold on still
    You know what it is you're waiting for
    Now you just hold on
    Hold on hold out, hold on

    Give up your heart and you lose your way
    Trusting another to feel that way
    Give up your heart and you find yourself
    Living for something in somebody else
    Sometimes you wonder what happens to love
    Sometimes the touch of a friend is enough

    Hold a place for the human race
    Keep it open wide
    Give it time to fall or climb
    But let the time decide
    Sometimes you wonder what's in this for you
    But you wait, and you see
    'Cause it's all you can do
    Just to hold on
    Hold on hold out, hold on

    For the countless souls beaten by their goals
    Keep a hold on now
    And the ones betrayed by the deals they made
    Keep a hold on
    If you hold your ground it'll turn around
    Keep a hold somehow

    Hold on hold out, keep a hold on tight
    Tonights the night
    Wake up and turn on the light
    You fight, and you're right--
    It's gonna take all your might...

    You're a hold out
    Well I'm a hold out too
    But it took me all this time to figure out
    Something you already knew
    Will love be true? Can it pull you through?
    How long? How strong?
    Somethings depend on you
    See-- I always figured I was going to meet somebody here
    and I don't know why
    Why should love come down and suddenly just sweep me away
    I want to fly
    But there are so many things in my way

    I guess you wouldn't know unless I told you
    I love you
    Well just look at yourself--
    What else would I do?

    Hold on--
