"Hold Me" as written by and Lucille Jones....
Hey if we can't find a way out of these problems
Then maybe we don't need this
Standing face to face
Enemies at war we build defenses
And secret hiding places
I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's all right
I might need you to make the first stand
Because tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

Hey more than angry words I hate this silence
It's getting so loud
Well I want to scream
But bitterness has silenced these emotions
It's getting hard to breathe
So tell me isn't happiness
Worth more than a gold and diamond ring?
I'm willing to do anything
To calm the storm in my heart
I've never been the praying kind
But lately I've been down upon my knees
Not looking for a miracle
Just a reason to believe

I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's all right
I might need you to make the first stand
Because tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

Do you remember not long ago?
When we used to live for the night-time
Cherish each moment
Now we don't live we exist
We just run through our lives
So alone
That's why you've got to hold me

Hey, if we can't find a way out of these problems
Then maybe we don't need this
Standing face to face
Enemies at war we build defenses
And secret hiding places
I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's all right
I might need you to make the first stand
Because tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

    General CommentRelationships are HARD. Hard times are inevitable. It involves two people trying to live one life. And the person you're sharing your life with becomes your other half and unfortunately, that means you take out all of your thoughts and emotions on that person. It's hard to bring 2 lifes together. Sometimes walls and defenses are built up and it gets to the point where neither of you are sure what you're fighting about anymore. And although you truly love one another, it gets to the point where love just isn't enough.

    General CommentEvery relationship goes through a stage where both don't think that it will last. But in this case, he obviously really wants to pull through this bad stage. He states that defences were built from each other but neither wants to be the first one to take a stand and tear them down.

    General Commenti really like this song.

    "So tell me isn't happiness
    Worth more than a gold diamond ring?"

    i like that line because it means that being happy is more important than staying in a bad relationship.

    General CommentI think it's about two exes... they're both still in love with eachother, but they won't admit it because they're both afraid of being hurt again. "bitterness has silenced these emotions"
    But now he's ready to give it another try "I'm willing to do anything to calm the storm in my heart" admirable courage!

    General CommentI love...

    "I've never been the praying kind
    but lately I've been down upon my knees
    not looking for a mircale,
    just a reason to believe."

    Sigh, I know exactly what he means. I think that's why I love Savage Garden so much... they always know how to describe emotions.

    Also, those few lines remind me of The Mists of Avalon (by Marion Zimmer Bradly) because the entire story is about people searching for faith.

    General CommentI always felt this song was about a moment in a relationship when you just don't care anymore. You're sick of always being first to take a stand and just want them to take charge for a while.

    General CommentThis song has very significant meaning for me and my hunny. We both get really angry at each other and sometimes we both feel like giving up. But this song gives us both faith that everything's going to be okay if we're willing to try and patch things up. There's more to a good relationship than simply having love for the person.

    General CommentI remember Darren saying that this song was written about the last period of his marriage...they loved each other but still kept on hurting themselves with arguments and there were no way back. It describes so perfectly the sense of having to end it for your own good...but how much you would give to save it. And you know it's goodbye...but you still need that person to hold you for the last time...to end in good terms such an important thing in your life.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, definitely my favorite savage garden song. I think it describes a point in a relationship where all the love isn't worth all of the arguements. It's not working, no matter how much they want it to.
