Hold On
Herb Pedersen


She got dealt such a dirty deal
Tried to learn just how to feel
By listening to the anger
She thought she was the cause

Above the darker side and the dead of night
Heard the screams of another fight
Oh how does all this come out right
Without a sense of loss

When the child from within cries out
She should be told what it's all about
Sometimes parents argue
People disagree

They don't know who is wrong or right
So they hide their pain
And wait for night to fall
And hide in slumber no-one says a word

Remember things that you can do
Before your baby's gone
Let 'em know who loves them
To help them carry on

The passing of their childhood
It happens way too fast
Let 'em hold on, hold on
Hold on and make it last

Twenty-one and on the run
She grew to fast to have some fun
Her eyes contain the sadness
Of a woman twice her age

She reaches for someone to hold
A dreadful tale that should be told
Has anyone around her
To help her turn the page

Remember things that you can do
Before your baby's gone
Let 'em know who loves them
To help them carry on

The passing of their childhood
It happens way too fast
Let them hold on, hold on
Hold on and make it last
Let them hold on, hold on
Hold on and make it last
