"Holding On" as written by and Charles-andre/bouvier Comeau....
Once again, i'm falling to my knees
(I try to escape cause i just can't take it)

Now this feeling is spreading like a disease
(I fake another day and the wheel keeps turning)

This place is so pathetic
Doesn't anybody get it
Is there anybody home?
(Is there anybody home?)

There's nothing left
We're just a shadow of what we used to be

In the night there's a fire in my eyes
And this paradise has become a place we've come to cry
When I open your letter, the words make it better
It takes it all away

It keeps me holding on
It keeps me holding on

Here we are, pretending we're ok
(You can say what you want but you still can't fool me)
The life we're living, it's all a masquerade
(I try to smile but i can't remember how)

So how did we get so jaded
Is it so complicated
To not give up on me?

In the night there's a fire in my eyes
And this paradise has become a place we've come to cry
When I open your letter, the words make it better
It takes it all away

It keeps me holding on
Whenever I need you
Wherever I run to
I know where to find you
It keeps me holding on
Whenever I need you
Wherever I run to
I know where to find you

It keeps me holding on
It keeps me holding on

In the night there's a fire in my eyes
And this paradise has become a place we've come to cry
When I open your letter, the words make it better
It takes it all away

It keeps me holding on
Whenever I need you
Wherever I run to
I know where to find you
It keeps me holding on
Whenever I need you
Wherever I run to
I know where to find you

It keeps me holding on

    General Commentyeah i agree with *fall out fairy*
    i reckon the song doesnt actually have any direct links to talking about love.. its two friends seperate problems and are only just about getting eachother through it when they need eachother most... cause when i listen to thsi it makes me think about a couple of people im close to so i can relate.
    the verses have alot of negative and a very down feeling... if you look at some lines from the verse1, "i fake another day and the wheel keeps turning" shows that this person forces him/herself through the day just to go through the same bad cycle. also with "theres nothing left, we're just a shadow of what we used to be", shows that they dont think either of them will ever be the same but trying to protect eachothers feelings and keep that thought from eachother to try and get eachother through...

    in verse 2
    "Here we are. Pretending we're okay. (You can say what you want, but you still can't fool me)"
    backs up what i just said about trying to protect eachother from what they feel.

    but it keeps going back to the chorus "When I open your letter
    The words make it better
    It takes it all away
    Oh, it keeps me holding on"

    shows that theyre holding on for eachother as they are all they have to keep going?

    "i know where to find you" means they know they can always rely on and run to eachother for support

    i would say more but i have to go lol, i might be wrong but its my opinion =]

    General CommentI agree with it being about friends. They need each other and even though they're apart they can still help one another can keep "holding on."
    This song is absolutely beautiful and extremely addicting.

    General CommentI really like this song...I mean, not the lyrics or anything in particular, just the whole song just sort of comes together really nicely =] but then again...I like most simple plan songs =]
