"Just Hold Me" as written by and Don D. Robey....
Comfortable as I am
I need your reassurance
And comfortable as you are
You count the days

But if I wanted silence
I would whisper
And if I wanted loneliness
I'd choose to go
And if i like rejection
I'd audition
And if I didn't love you
You would know

And why can't you just hold me
And how come it is so hard
And do you like to se me broken
And why do I still care
still care

You say you see the light now
At the end of this narrow hall
I wish it didn't matter
I wish I didn't give you all

But if I wanted silence
I would whisper
And if I wanted loneliness
I'd choose to go
And if i like rejection
I'd audition
And if I didn't love you
You would know

And why can't you just hold me
And how come it is so hard
And do you like to see me broken
And why do I still care

Poor little misunderstood baby
No one likes a sad face
But I can't remember life without him
I think I did have good days
I think I did have good days

And why can't you just hold me
And how come it is so hard
And do you like to see me broken
And why do I still care

    General Commentthe "but, i can't remember life without him/i think i did have good days" lines are what get me the most in this song. it's the feeling of realizing that you're miserable all the time and trying to make yourself realize that it couldn't have always been this bad. it's trying to find a way to redeem the life you're living now. ...if that makes sense. i couldn't articulate it as well as i'd hoped.

    General CommentAddictive song... Great little lyrics, like in almost all of her songs. Here the "And if i like rejection I'd audition..." stands out.

    General Commenti love to sing this one!
    i think it mean being in relation with anyone (father mother boy/girlfriend friends etc.) and feeling really insecure about the relation with that person, cause you feel like you don't really matter...

    or it could be addiction in any form...i would think personally of an ED of SI...and people around you don't really seem to care...

    ''And why can't you just hold me''
    to the person who sees you being depressed: i just want you to hold me to heal me.

    ''And how come it is so hard''
    life is hard, why is it so hard to not give in for once...the person with the addiction always gives in to starve or binge/purge or cut...

    ''And do you like to see me broken''
    talking to the disorder: to you really want to ruin me?

    ''And why do I still care''
    talking to herself asking herself why she still cares so much for her disorder...


    dunno...just my interpretation of it :)

    General CommentI think its the typical song about being in love but he doesn't care. (GREAT SONG HOWEVER)

    First verse, she is saying she needs his reasurence that the relationship won't end. But he's counting the days to maybe the relationship ending? Or something that would make it end like him moving away or something,

    Chorus is pretty self explanatory. Aimed towards him, and the way he acts. Like sarcasim.

    Second verse. He's pulling away, maybe cause he wants to break up or is moving away or something, and all she wants is him to hold her. She is naive and wonders why she still cares about her when he doesnt (or appears not to) care about her.

    3rd verse. About him saying he will change, or that he sees it can works, basically wants another chance on something he thought was unlikly to work. But she is saying she wish's she didnt give him all the "power."

    Now shes like talking to herself, and its pretty self explanotory, saying before him she thinks she was happy.

    General Commenti don't really understand the line But I can't remember life without him
    I think I did have good days

    maybe she can't really remember how it was before. scared of breaking up. scared of being alone again.. maybe she thinks this is almost better than being all alone. hoping it becomes better again.

    that's my interpretation

    General Commentk here's my take :] -

    first verse:
    she's saying she needs his (or anyone's) reassurance that things are going to be okay, but it's just a matter of time before he leaves.

    hook:
    she's saying she doesn't want any of this- the lonliness, the separation, the rejection; and that she really cares about him.

    chorus:
    he keeps hurting her, and she keeps caring. she starts to think he's doing it on purpose; because he likes to see her 'broken'. she keeps wondering why he can't just hold her, why he can't just be there for her, and why they can't just be together and be happy.

    and so on. ;]
    but that's just my interpretation, if anyone agrees.

    good song though. :]

    General CommentThis is the song that says everything I can't.
    Now if only I could get him to listen to it...

    hrm.

    I agree with what most of you are saying.


    It's a person (I'll say person because it doesn't necesarily have to be a girl) that's in a relationship with a person (doesn't have to be a boyfriend girlfriend one) and isn't getting wshat they deserve what they want from it.

    It's SOOO wow


    Just- you know that saying--- "Misery loves company" it does.
    It's bittersweet to know I'm not alone in this.
