"Keep Holding On" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Lukasz Gottwald....
You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side
You know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold

And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
No, I won't give in

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

So far away
I wish you were here
Before it's too late
This could all disappear

Before the doors close
And it comes to an end
With you by my side, I will fight and defend
I'll fight and defend
Yeah, yeah

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
Nothing's gonna change
Nothing's gonna change destiny
Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

La da da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da da

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

Keep holding on

Keep holding on

There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

    General CommentTo me, this song is about tough times.
    "keep standing strong."
    stay strong
    "I'm here for you."
    Your here for them
    It could be about a couple going though tough times. Or just two friends, or just one person, wanting someone to help them though the pain
    Just my opinion haters

    General CommentOMG! THIS SONG IS SOO INSPIRATIONAL AND AWSOME! Avril said that this song is supposed to be inspired about the movie. i think it's pretty much about never giving up and always thinking of the best of things. GO AVRIL!

    My OpinionIl start by saying im really not an Avril fan at all, infact il be honest and say i normally cant stand her. But theres just something about this song that i can really relate to.

    I think most people can relate to this in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship sense, but for me its my relationship between myself and my best friend. I moved and we now live in different cities but we speak all the time. He has Bipolar disorder and its sometimes a struggle to make him see how much of a wonderful person he really is. I tell him how im always here for him, that when he feels like killing himself that hes not alone and i stay strong and fight for him when he cant do it for himself.

    This song just speaks to me.

    im who i am , and avril has ALWAYS been who she IS.
    this song is just showing shes matured as a person singer/songwriter.

    props.

    & all of the above. :]

    General CommentThis song has really helped me with one of my friends death, when she overdosed on Oxycontin. I was listening to this when she went into her coma, and it reminds me of her everytime i hear it. Not QUITE sure the meaning of the song but the "so far away, i wish you were here. Before it's too late this could all disappear" brings back the memory. But of course the "keep holding on" part helps the best.
    Great song from Avril.
