Only holding on
Is this what you want?
Is this what you want?
Dreams are falling apart as were only Holding on
Ambition gets old
When our hearts lie to us
Our hearts break our trust as were only Holding on

We gave our everything
We gave our everything
We gave our everything
All for unwanted dreams
We gave our everything

Lights dim down
Were the stars tonight
Their voices bring
Slight wind to the sky
Their voices sing along
Feel their souls lift with ours as they Share the night
But you sing a different song
You sing a different song

Only holding on
Is this what you want?
Is this what you want?
Dreams are falling apart as were only Holding on
Ambition gets old
When our hearts lie to us
Our hearts break our trust as were only Holding on

We gave our everything
We gave our everything
We gave our everything
All for unwanted dreams
We gave our everything

Cant you see my grip is weakening,
Erasing every line
And taking down the frames
I'd look back but im too far away
A ghost to the faces I miss

Have a little faith
I'll come back home
Dont forget my name
When im alone
A ghost to the faces i miss
I'm a ghost to the faces i miss

    General CommentWell, from what I think it might be about a couple's relationship going down, just not the same love they felt in the begining, they tried to do whatever it took to make it better but it didnt work "We gave our everything All for unwanted dreams" after breaking up the girlfriend(i think the's the point of view i'm not sure) misses him and wants him back, she wants him to have a bit more faith to work it out again.

    I think :)

    General Commentit's about being out on the road and struggling with maintaining a relationship despite the fact that they hardly see each other. they miss each other and try as hard as they can to make things work, but they're hanging by a string. they struggle with trust and the pain that comes along with knowing that there is temptation while they're separated. "i'm a ghost to the faces i miss" is referring to the loved ones that have been left behind and how they fear that they may be forgotten by them.

    General CommentThey just released their new album, Reach, and this song was renamed to Only Holding On, and according to the band, this song is about a battle between Alexia's conscience and outer self during the verses, and then the chorus is the band reminding her why she performs music.
