"You Used To Hold Me" as written by and Adam / Wiles....
Knocked down everything I tried to do
That sounds something like me holding you
I've known this can make you understand
Take my spirit from my open hand

You used to hold me
You used to hold me
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah

You know better than I do

Knocked down everything I tried to do
That sounds something like me holding you
I've known this can make you understand
Take my spirit from my open hand

You used to hold me
You used to hold me
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah

You know better than I do

You used to hold me
You used to hold me
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah
You used to hold me me me me, yeah

    General CommentThe one line I find most intriguing in this song is "Take my spirit from my open hand." Is it referring to his metaphysical "spirit", or just an alcoholic beverage (or both)!?

    General CommentLove this song.

    But the chorus annoys me... 'cause it almost sounds like he says "you used to hold me me me near" but I think it's just "me" all the way through but it sounds wrong at the end lol. XD

    General CommentI don't think the above lyrics to this song are correct.
    This is how I think it goes:

    Knocked down everything I tried to do
    That sounds something like me holding you
    I know this can make you understand
    Take my spirit from my open hand

    (Chorus)
    You used to hold me
    You used to hold me
    You used to hold me, me, me, me, yeah (X3)

    Me, me, me, yeah. . .


    You know better than I do

    Knocked down everything I tried to do
    That sounds something like me holding you
    I know this can make you understand
    Take my spirit from my open hand

    (repeat from Chorus)

    You know better than I do.

    (back to Chorus)

    MemoryMakes me remember when I was dating someone so much, I was almost begging for not too much love, now he's not with me anymore. Then I start singing this due to my stupid emotions in those times... he's dating another person. *Signs*
