I was young, I'd seen it all
A cemetery in the middle of a super mall
I went to school, I never learned
How it feels, how everything you love can burn
And it never stops, it's all I got
And I never know when to turn
Like a merry-go-round,
It all comes around again

And I don't know why I'm here
I don't know where I'm going
If I don't give it time,
How can this garden grow
I don't know what I've lost
And I don't know how to get it back
But I'm holdin' on
Yes I'm holdin' on
For as long as I can

I moved away, I left the band
I saw it coming, it was written on the back of my hand
And every day, I could feel
Something missing, I went home to get a record deal
And my mother said, "You're theirs 'til you're dead,
to them it's just another meal"
Now I'm fat with regret
I'm placing my bet on me

And I don't know why I'm here
I don't know where I'm going
If I don't give it time,
How can this garden grow
I don't know what I've lost
And I don't know how to get it back
But I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
Yes I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
For as long as I can

It's not over yet, no, it's not even close
My heart is younger, stronger
Than one hundred cowards' in a row
And all my curiosity will keep me
Asking what went wrong
When it's all done, when it's gone,
No, it won't be long
'Til I'm traveling back in time
To a place when I was mine

I don't know why I'm here
I don't know where I'm going
If I don't give it time,
How can this garden grow
I don't know what I've lost
And I don't know how to get it back
But I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
I'm holdin' on (holdin' on)
For as long as I can

For as long as I can

Holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on, holdin' on

For as long as I can

Holdin' on, holdin' on
Holdin' on, holdin' on

For as long as I can...
