"Hold Me Now" as written by Tom Bailey, Alannah Joy Currie and Joseph Martin Leeway....
I have a picture,
Pinned to my wall.
An image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all.
Look at our life now, tattered and torn.
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we cry until dawn

Hold me now, warm my heart
Stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)

You say I'm a dreamer, we're two of a kind
Both of us searching for some perfrct world we know we'll never find
So perhaps I should leave here, yeah yeah go far away
But you know that there's no where that I'd rather be than with you here
Today

Hold me now, warm my heart
Stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)

You ask if I love you, well what can I say?
You know that I do and if this is just one of those games that we play
So I'll sing you a new song, please don't cry anymore
And then I'll ask your forgiveness, though I don't know just what I'm
Asking it for

Hold me now, warm my heart
Stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs. The first time I heard it, was in 50 first dates and it was a remake and I completely fell in love with it because there was a time in my life when I could completely relate to it.

    I think this song is about a relationship that seems to be coming to an end and the person singing is reminiscing ("i have a picture, pinned to my wall, an image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all..") about all the good times they had together and now all they're doing is fighting over silly things ("you ask if I love you, well what can i say, you know that i do and that this is just one of those games that we play...") and he's wishing that they could fix the relationship ("Hold me now, warm my heart, stay with me, let loving start...")

    Beautiful, sad, song.

    General CommentI absolutely love "Hold Me Now" and Thompson Twins are one of my favourite 80s bands...

    redroses237, I think your meaning of the song hit the nail right on the head -- it sounds just right...and also reminds me of what it was like towards the end of a relationship I had ages ago 'cos in the beginning, everything was perfect and whatnot and then it started to unravel...

    General CommentI thought the line was "Let loving storm..." It seems so much more appropriate for this song. I agree with you redroses237. It is obviously a relationship that has seen better days and is unraveling quickly. Celtic, I've been adding a bunch of songs, so maybe there will be more soon...

    General Comment"So perhaps I should leave here Yeah, go far away But you know that There's nowhere That I'd rather be Than with you here today" that is an amazing line. i love this song so much. when i was younger i would listen to it on repeat until my mom got ticked off and made me change it.
