"Hold On" as written by and Harley Thomas Webster Daniel Paul Merriweather....
[Intro]
So down, you've been up for days (I been there man)
So hold on, hold on.

(Yeh, i know what it feels like)
Your start nothing with your ways(And if you feel lost, im on my way)
So hold on, Hold on (Just hold on)

[Verse 1]
This kid sitting at the train station, trying to maintain shit,
Rain in his face, crying his brains flipped,
He swears to god every fucking to night that it will change shit,
But his grades get worse and his fights with the same kids,
His mother telling him he needs to smarten his act up,
But schools just a place where he go to get bashed up,
Self esteem smashed up, brutally battered, he's through it he's had it
With everything that truthfully mattered,
Abused and in tatters try to find his way to the front line,
But his peers hold him back everyday that its crunch time,

He's seen in the lunch line but never been noticed,
Its like he knows what he wants but he's never been focused,
So i hocus pocus pull out a magic trick,
I got to bring this kid back from a tragic trip,
Before its too late and a time bomb ticks,
Before he ends up drunk with a plate to his wrist (Yeah)!,

[Chorus]
So down you've been up for days, but im coming,
So hold on hold on, hold on, hold on cos im coming,
You start nothing with your ways but im coming,
So hold on hold on Hold on, hold on cos' im coming.

[Verse 2]
You see Debbie had a hunnie and thought it was figured out,
But Debbie fell pregnant so her hubby was up and out,
He left her with nothing now but chaos to order,
Man she facing life sentence single mother with a daughter,
He bought her a car but it take a tear from a stone,
But the message written is followed said to go it alone,
She home on her own, trying to raise a baby its bullshit,
This girls only sixteen and barely a school kid,
She's round with the cool click,
The popular school chicks,
The hot and the pool shit,
But bikini's don't matter if your fat in the tummy,
Is it sad or just funny it ain't a joke to her when little bobby's crying for mummy,
So now she's out on her own because her friends don't call,
She's a cinderallera princess without no ball,
To attend and a friend is all she needs when she's down,
And she greiv ill pick her up and put her back on her feet (Yeah)!,

[Chorus]
So down you've been up for days, but im coming,
So hold on hold on, hold on cos im coming,
You start nothing with your ways but im coming,
So hold on hold on, Hold on cos im coming.

[Verse 3]
The other week i saw this kid trying spit raps,
One of them parties where the private school chicks at,
He sporting payless shoes with the shit cap,
From the outer suburbs caught up in the riff raff,
He dropped a sixteen I swore that he'd make it,
They laughed at his clothes but he'd rap if he was naked,
I asked "why he did this?" he said "we just do.."
Its just like marriage boy you just knew,
He was one for each other, you could write to each other,
Spend a night with each other or fend and fight for the other,
So if he does it then im a do it to,
Hold on and be strong ill be back,
comin for you (Yeah)!

[Chorus]
So down you've been up for days, but im coming,
So hold on hold on, hold on cos im coming,
You start nothing with your ways but im coming,
So hold on hold on Hold on cos im coming.

[Outro]
Im coming home, im coming home, im coming home, but im coming
Im coming home, im coming home, im coming home, hold on cause im coming
Im coming home, im coming home, im coming home, but im coming
Im coming home, im coming home, im coming home, hold on cause im coming.
