HOLD ON
(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)

CHORUS :

D (2 HARD STRUMS) Am
HOLD ON ...........TO DREAMS INSIDE YOURSELF
D (2 HARD STRUMS) Em
HOLD ON ..........TO THE THINGS THAT REALLY COUNT
D (2 HARD STRUMS) Am
HOLD ON ......... TO WHAT IS REAL NOW
D (2 HARD STRUMS) Em
HOLD ON ........ TO WHAT'S ALREADY FOUND
D (2 HARD STRUMS) Em
SO HOLD ON .......TO DREAMS INSIDE YOURSELF
D (2 HARD STRUMS) Em
JUST HOLD ON...........

VERSE 1:

G Fmaj7 C
SHE FELT THINGS BE TO BETTER ON THE OTHER SIDE
TO LEAVE HER OWN LIFE WAY BEHIND
WHAT SHE HAS NOW SEEMS EASY TO PUSH ASIDE
DREAMS OF OTHERS SEEMED ALWAYS BETTER
Fmaj7 C Cm7
THE BELIEFS IN HER OWN HEART LEFT UNTRIED


VERSE 2:

G Fmaj7 C
OUR VALUE'S SEEM TO BE SO EASILY BOUGHT
THAT WHAT WE CHASE IS OFTEN RIGHT BESIDE US
ITS' NOT ABOUT GETTING WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE
IT'S ABOUT KEEPING WHAT YOU ALREADY GOT
Fmaj7 C Cm7
AND THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE SEEM TO HAVE FORGOT


VERSE 3:

G Fmaj7 C
TO ALL THOSE WHO LIVE AN AMERICAN DREAM
ITS' JUST ANOTHER TRIP TO MORE PLACES
ONLY FACELESS PEOPLE IN ENDLESS RACES
ITS' JUST ANOTHER SOCIETAL SCHEME
Fmaj7 C Cm7
NO SUCH THING AS THE YANKEE DREAM
