You say you don't believe in sorrow
Then why are you so sad?
There's no need to fear tomorrow
It's never quite that bad

You have such heart, you're the precious one
And you will have your day
I know there is no justice now
There's nothing left to say

If you don't believe in the setting sun
If you've lost your faith in the holy one
If you're feeling like you need a friend
You can hold on
Yes you can hold on
Hold on to my hand
Don't let go

If you're with the one you care for
And you wake up in the middle of the night
If she's the one you hold a prayer for
You keep the candle bright

If her body's weak, but her heart is strong
If you feel the heat, as the day is long
If you're just a boy, trying to be a man
You can hold on
Yes you can hold on
Hold on to her hand
She will understand

    General CommentI just listened to this song for the first time today. And it has alot of personal meaning to me already.

    At times, we try to deny our pain, but we can turn to the people who love us and they will be there to hold our hand..

    General CommentHe talks about a lot of things very close to my heart.

    Losing faith,
    losing the one you love, (he perfectly describes what its like to wake up in a hospital bed next to your dying love)
    how there seems like there is no justice.

    I love colin hay to a stalker degree haha
