"Holdin' On" as written by and Clarence Greenwood....
Have been wantin' you for so long
I have been wantin' you for so long (so long)
I been down I been down a different road
I been out I have been out of control

But girl when you touch me that yea
I get my senses back yea
But when you touch me that yea (that yea)
I get me sense back yea

So now I'm feelin' right
'cause nothing feels like when you're holdin' on
Said I feel alright
'cause nothing feels like when you're hodin' on
I feelin' alright
'cause nothing feels like when you're holdin' on
When you're holdin' on

I wanna treat you like you wanna be treated yea
I wanna see you as you wanna be seen yea
I been down I been down a different road
I been out I have been out of control

But girl when you touch me that yea
I get my senses back yea (back yea)
But when you touch me that yea (that yea)
I get me sense back yea

So now I'm feelin' right
'cause nothing feels like when you're holdin' on
Said I feel alright
'cause nothing feels like when you're holdin' when you're holdin'
I feelin' alright
'cause nothing feels like when you're holdin on
When you're holdin' on

Let yourself go girl
Let yourself go
Let let yourself go
Let yourself go
Let yourself go
Let yourself go
Let yourself go

    General CommentWow, the girl this song is written about must feel special. Even though he's been lost, she's his solace and muse...she restores him. All the things she does for him, he wants to give the same back to her...all she has to do is "let herself go".

    Favorite lyric:
    I wanna treat you like you wanna be treated yea
    I wanna see you as you wanna be seen yea

    My InterpretationJMO, but I think it sounds as if was a heroin addict. And when he was using he couldn't feel anything. Emotionally (because being an addict, it's a full-time job, really..and relationships can't be REAL) and physically...kissing, sex, it's feels like nothing. Nothing feels like what it feels like to be just alive..awake and sober and alive and in love and lust. So, when he became sober, he got together with this woman (who he may have wanted to be with when he was using, but knew he couldn't..heroin, for example, is a heavy weight). It doesn't allow for anything or anyone to come IN. So, when he did get sober, he got his senses back. Now he feels everything. Her touch. Her love. Nothing feels like it does than when she's holdin on. I too love the line, "I wanna treat you like you wanna be treated"...it's so dreamy. So lovely. It makes me sad because I've never had anyone love me this way.
