Hold on, before I slip away
The flames gone, dark I am afraid
How strong, is flesh and blood
I cannot, can take back what I've done

To you, my sweetest friend
I betrayed you, I walked away again
Now all that's left, is what might have been
Please forgive me, before we reach the end

Hold on, before I slip away
My loves gone cold, I've gone astray
How strong, is flesh and blood
I cannot take back what I've done

    General CommentThis song is haunting. I love it! A song about sin and regret. Sounds like an affair maybe. Something treacherous that ruined a relationship.
