"Zelda" as written by and Pete Townshend....
Words from a drunk and numbers in code
I've got the pride of the Irish on the phone
Keep sending postcards from Chicago

Pressure's building up
I think I might explode

Hold tight
I wish that you could see through my eyes
I've never really been good with goodbyes
So keep holding on
I'm holding on
So what'll it be?

Clothes in the trunk
I guess I should have known
Looks like the Queen of Confusion's got her throne
Save all White Russian for the drive home

Mint and hazelnut
I can't forget how you taste
Windows boarded up
But were they ever really open in the first place?

Hold tight
I wish that you could see through my eyes
I've never really been good with goodbyes
So keep holding on
I'm holding on

This time I promise not to take the whole night
I'm doing all I can to make this right
(Make this right)
So keep holding on
I'm holding on

One day leads to decay
What in the hell happened to us?
My dear, you have a choice to make

Hold tight
I wish that you could see through my eyes
I've never really been good with goodbyes
(With goodbyes)
So keep holding on
I'm holding on

This time I
(This time I)
Promise not to take the whole night
I'm doing all I can, doing all I can to make this right
So keep holding on
I'm holding on

Hold tight
I wish that you could see through my eyes
I've never really been good with goodbyes
(With goodbyes)
So keep holding on
Holding on

This time I promise not to take the whole night
I'm doing all I can to make this right
(Make this right)
So keep holding on
I'm holding on
So keep holding on
I'm holding on

    General CommentThe lyrics of this song just scream "toxic relationship" to me. "Hold tight, I wish that you could see through my eyes, I've never really been good with goodbyes..." Maybe it's about being in a toxic relationship and not having the strength or the ability to end it properly, so they just keep holding on. Obviously he's miserable, I totally relate to that.
