The floorboards creak when I get home
Nothing can make you feel so alone
I light a smoke, sit in my chair
Bring back your ghost, pretend you're here
I still see you in my dreams
You never change, you're still seventeen
The skies were blue, grass was green
And you're still whispering to me

I've been holding
I've been holding on
I've been holding
I've been holding on

Now the days are long and cold
It's midnight, it cuts you to the bone
I'd hate to think that you've moved on
'Cause standing still just takes too long

I've been holding
I've been holding on
I've been holding
I've been holding on

What have you been holding onto, my dear?
You been holding on to sand
What have you been holding onto, my dear?
Holding on to sand

I've been holding
I've been holding on
I've been holding
I've been holding on

I've been holding
I've been holding on
I've been holding
I've been holding on
