"Hold On" as written by Bradley David Spalter and Andre Allen....
You tried so hard to be someone
Did you forget who you are
You tried to fill some emptiness
'Til all you had spilled over

Now everything's so far away
That you don't know where you are
You are

All that you wanted
And that you have done
Says so much
For you to hold on to
For you to hold on to
You belong too

When it's to be yourself,
It's not to be someone else
Still, everything's so far away
That you forgot where you are
You are

Well, all that you wanted
And that you have done
Says so much
For you to hold on to
For you to hold on to

Hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on,
And all that you wanted
And that you have done
Says so much
For you to hold on to
For you to hold on to
For you to hold on to
For you you belong to

    General Commentthis is a great song.

    saying you should just be who you are... weather your despratly trying to fit in, or being as different as possible. He's so right a lot of the time it's really easier to act like someone else instead of being yourself.

    but when it comes down to it, eventualy you might want to be yourself... but

    General CommentThis song is about being yourself. So many people try so hard to be something that they are not and this can become very difficult. Often times being something one is not will complicate things and that person will find that even while they thought they would be happy, they are not. They feel like they have tried so hard to be someone and they are miserable and empty regardless. Pretty much just be yourself and love yourself for who you are... even if no one gets it.

    General CommentThis doesn't really sound like Jet, but I love it anyways. The Spiderman 2 soundtrack is great. I happen to like the Hoobastank one though. Its one of my favorites.

    My InterpretationSometimes I feel like a pebble falling through the river of life. Currents pull me every which way. I hope to pass by something good on my way to the bottom, and that I land somewhere good. It's just such a mess though. I don't know of a good place to go or how to get there. Sometimes I have ideas and make plans on them, but it's easy to loose hope in, and give up on, them.

    This song seems to describe the situation perfectly, and "hold on" is a sort of cathartic memorable reassurance to never let go of my plans.
