I'm gonna keep on holding on

Times are changing, rearranging
All the raging over little things has got me all confused
And I don't why, but it seems I caught the big lie
And I'm letting go and reaching out for truth
So, I can't stop now, 'til I find out what it's all about, and somehow
Grab a hold, so no one can take it away

I'll be, I'll be holding on
I see right where I belong
I know everything that's going on around me

Your frustrations, complications, time is wasting
You better figure out whether you're wasting time
It all comes down to I can't make you feel what I do
But I can feel for you, so, what do you got to lose?


I'm gonna keep on holding on, while all of this is going on
I should've seen this all along, but now, I see right where I went wrong
That doesn't mean I can't be strong
So, now, I've got to carry on
It's hard to see that I was gone
I'll stay right here where I belong

    General CommentI know someone is going to dispute this with me and say "oh every song has to be about a girl doesn't it?" but I don't care. I think this song is about a guy who has a girlfriend who he's madly in love with but she's very carefree and independent and doesn't know if she wants to be with him for the rest of her life. However, he knows without a doubt that he wants to be with her and just her and so he'll "be holding on" until she figures out that he's been there this entire time. Just my opinion.

    General CommentYou are right Lionheart7296 in the sense that i am going to dispute you. This song has nothing to do with a girl. Pillar is a Christian band, and i am a strong Christian so to me it is easier to see what i believe this song is about. It is about someone who was caught up in the lies/sins of this world

    "And I don't why, but it seems I caught the big lie".

    But this person realizes it and decides that they want to live life in God's eyes rather than in the world's eyes and start doing the right things.

    "And I'm letting go and reaching out for truth"

    the chorus then focuses on the person saying that they are on the right path and no one can pull them away from God

    General CommentBoth could be right. If a band's Christian, it doesn't mean that every song is about being Christian.
