I still see your coat hanging on the door,
Never let anyone put one there before,
My pillows got your head printed on it,
Baby of all the guys you were my favourite.

Don't ask me why, I just can't say goodbye,
No not, tonight, no I just can't say it.

'Cause I'm gonna hold on, yea I'm gonna hold on,
And we gotta keep holdin' on to what we had,
'Cause I don't wanna move on, so I gotta hold on,
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
(Like, l-l-like) Like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
(Like, l-l-like) Like quicksand,
(Like, like)
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand.

You came along, I didn't know of love,
But now I know that sometimes its just not enough.
I hear your footsteps in my corridor,
But it is just my heart, its pounding like before,

Wish I, could try, but I just can't say goodbye,
No not, tonight, no I just can't say it.

'Cause I'm gonna hold on, yea I'm gonna hold on,
And we gotta keep holdin' on to what we had,
'Cause I don't wanna move on, so I gotta hold on,
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
(Like, l-l-like) Like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand,
(Like, like) Like quicksand,
(Like, l-l-like) Like quicksand,
(Like, like)
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand.

'Cause the ground is breaking,
I can feel it shaking,
Wish it was that easy,
But its not that easy,
Gotta hold my hands out,
Gotta keep my head up,
Gotta keep on breathin',
Baby even if we're sinking.

Even if we're sinking.

Baby even if we're sinking.

Even if we are sinking.

'Cause I just-just gotta-gotta hold on...

'Cause I'm gonna hold on, yea I'm gonna hold on,
And we gotta keep holdin' on to what we had,
'Cause I don't wanna move on, so I gotta hold on,
Maybe because you and me are sinking like quicksand,
'Cause I just-just gotta, gotta,
Only got one life, we hold on,
We don't even need to be so shy,
Only you and me we need to hold on and hold on,
Only got one life, we hold on,
We don't even need to be so shy,
Only you and me we need to hold on and hold on,
Hold on.
And hold on.
And hold on.
And hold on.

(Baby 'cause you and me are sinking like quicksand.)

And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
(Baby 'cause you and me are sinking like quicksand.)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
(Baby 'cause you and me are sinking like quicksand.)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)
And hold on. (Hold on)

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song... She owes a lot to Lady GaGa for how fabulous this song is; but yeah, I really can't say enough about how excited I am for Britney's comeback. WOO.
