"Hold On My Heart" as written by and Michael/collins Rutherford....
Hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we've been here before
We both know what can happen

Hold on my heart
'cause I'm looking over you shoulder
Please don't rush in this time
Don't show her how you feel

Hold on my heart
Throw me a lifeline
I'll keep a place for you
Somewhere deep inside

Hold on my heart
Please tell her to be patient
'cause there has never been a time
That I wanted something more

If I can recall this feeling
And I know there's a chance
Oh I will be there
Yes I will be there
Be there for you
Whenever you want me to
Whenever you call I will be there
Yes I will be there

Hold on my heart
Don't let her see you crying
No matter where I go
She'll always be with me

Hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we've been here before
We both know what can happen
So hold on my heart

    General CommentThe song is an affirmation to himself. He's fearing to let go and show all his vulnerabilities with his lover. He's very in love and last time he felt this way he was hurt or disappointed. He hopes she understands.

    This is a beautiful, mellow and peaceful song. Fans of Phil Collins or Genesis's softer music should like this.

    General CommentSimple song about the fear of taking the next step in a relationship, likely related to previous experiences of rejection and depression.
