Sometimes with life, you salvage every kiss goodnight,
and climb to every mountain high, but prairies are too flat,
Don’t sell it out, and curse the hand that waivers growth,
I won’t trade it for the world cause this is just my world

Don’t you, don’t you try to, hold on, to the old town,
I knew, I knew you would
We've grown, through the bad times,
we've lasted the whole night,
I knew, I knew we could

CHORUS
A million lights from the plane above,
A million stories that bring push to shove,
How can we keep looking forward when who we are is starring back
Feel the pain that you try to shake, snowstorms, people, that I take,
and I don’t know, I don't know, I wont let go, I won’t let you

(yes you really want it) This is time, (yes you really want it) through the hourglass,
(do you really want it) there's more to life, then a love song,
(yes you really want it) And I'm a bold man, (yes you really get it) I'm a bold man,
(do you really want it) cause this is home, in the heartland

Last time in check, the sunrise tried to warm the crest,
of every heart that laid to rest, and concedes tonight
I’ll turn around, and test the perfect from the best,
and drop my pencil from the test, this is knocking off

Don’t you, don’t you try to, hold on, to the old town,
I knew, I knew you would
We've grown, through the bad times, we've lasted the whole night,
I knew, I knew we could

CHORUS

Hold your own, hold your own, hold your own, hold you own,
This won’t last through your, lasting climate dreams,
When the world won’t turn to meet you, you face it,
you fight it, you know, you welcome

CHORUS

    General CommentOhhh I love this song ; definatly one of my favourites by TSE.
    And yes, they do put on an amazing live show, they're all incredibly nice too. 'Specially Andrew. :)

    Anyways, I'm pretty sure this song is about going through good and bad times, and just holding on, not giving up, etc etc etc.
    I could be wrong, idk.
