I watched as you rushed out the door and into the rain
Leaving crowded conversation, lacking comfort therein
And fearing you'd succumb to grief and be swept away
I followed in your footsteps and trailed in your wake

So you'd know, you're not alone

Then you fell into my arms and cried out between sobs
You said "why did this have to happen and why couldn't it be stopped?"
And staring through the darkness and into your face I said,
"my dear there are some things that no one can change"

Oh, but know you're not alone
just tell me you know that you're not alone

when everything around you begins to tumble down
and the world starts tasting sour, as surely it is bound to
I know it isn't easy but don't you give up on me
Always remember this, cause it's the only thing that matters at all.
Oh, at all...

No one said it's easy
Letting go, accepting
When you're hoping that it might change
And clinging to the memories

You say, "I'm not a strong girl, and it's alright,
But I don't think that I take this much more."
I say, "I feel the same way, but it's alright
Just stay here in my arms and
tell me you know"

you're not alone
just tell me you know that you're not alone

when everything around you begins to tumble down
and the world starts tasting sour, as surely it is bound to
I know it isn't easy but please don't give up on me
Always remember this, cause it's the only thing that matters at all.

That you hold on
That you hold on
That you hold on

Well just hold your breath and look out the window
Know the clouds won't hang forever
seasons always change, eventually and
as tortured thoughts scream out like a banshee
drain your hope and tear at your valor
think of what I said and promise me
that you'll hold on
that you'll hold on
that you'll hold on
that you'll hold on

Well just breathe again with eyes out the window,
watch the clouds start to dissolve
replacing grief with a thousand memories
Oh and feel it coming back again
forcing all the wounds to mend
and patching all the holes punched in your life,
and making it alright

Oh, when everything around you begins to tumble down
and the world starts tasting sour, as surely it is bound to
I know it isn't easy but don't you give up on me
Always know that you are not alone
And always know that you are not alone
