"Embrace" as written by and Mimi J. Parker George Alan Sparhawk....
Holding my head
For the last of race
Pushing my body
To get that embrace

It won't last
Hold on fast
It won't last
Hold on fast

Breathing in time
So hard to trace
Crushing your skull
With my warming embrace

It won't last
Hold on fast
It won't last
Hold on fast

I fell down the stairs
I wished I were dead
You ran for the light
He handed me your head

It won't last
It won't last
Hold on fast
It won't last
Hold on fast

    General CommentWhy this song doesn't have hundreds of comments on it is beyond me. Things We Lost in the Fire is amazing and this song is the highlight of the album.

    As for what this song is about, I know Mimi Parker and Alan Sparhawk were having a baby around the time this album was made. I always took the song to be about having to deal with general depression of life and having this child that truly makes up happy and that s/he is going to be growing up and leaving so fast that you want to hold on to you child forever.
