"Hold It In" as written by and Ben Thornewill....
Jump into that water and see for yourself
Take a deep breath and hold it in
Hold it in

She's got a secret
And she wants to tell
But I made a promise to hold it in
Hold it in

Baby, I'm in love
And it's not in to tell
Only thing that I can do is hold it in
Hold it in

Was told that I'm a man now
And that I'm not allowed to cry
Only thing that I can do is hold it in
Hold it in, ha!

Life is Oh my god, if I tell him he'll tell her
And then she will know I like her
Good grief, I don't think that I can take this heartbreak
Any Longer
I will not hold it in

Ooh

Couple with a baby and it's no secret why
Neither one was able to hold it in
Hold it in

Kids in the streets, yeah they're all gettin' high
Everybody's screaming hold it in,
Hold it in!


Life is Oh my god, if I tell him he'll tell her
And then she will know I like her
Good grief, I don't think that I can take this heartbreak
Any longer
I will not hold it in

Ooh

If there's a God, he's embarrassed
And it's no secret why:
Only thing that he can do is hold it in
Hold it in

So I printed him a letter to be sent out to sea
I'm looking for a bottle to hold it in,
Hold it in, ha!


Life is Oh my god, if I tell him he'll tell her
And then she will know I like her
Good grief, I don't think that I can take this heartbreak
Any Longer
I will not hold it in

Ooh

    General CommentJukebox just played a concert at where I go to school, and Thornewill said that the influence behind this song was that he kept unplugging the amp to his keyboard at concerts (couldn't "hold it in). Whether or not that is true or he was just saying that as a joke I don't know.

    My Interpretationi definitely think this song is about life as a teenager, and just growing up in general.
    as a teen, i can say that life at school pretty much revolves around drama over the opposite sex.
    also, the lyrics address getting high and questioning the existence of a god, which are things kids face every day.
    overall i love this song and think it's hilarious :)

    General CommentIt might just be about so many different uses of the phrase "hold it in" ... I think it's really clever
