Everywhere I've been people ask me why you'd walk
So far away from that soulful sunshine
But it's just no place for me where one man's freedom is only talk
I've had to run, hoping just to find mine

A couple of years ago a few boys up and left home
To find a place where greener grass would grow
And though the grass was frozen over and the beaches lined with snow
It was a lonely town that we all would come to know

It took a while to get here
And i'll still be here when you're gone
If this is gospel Lord then I've found religion
If I can only hold on

There's a few along the way who've made the nights not seem so long
Whose songs lifted us up and cured our pain
And the talk of perfect had kept us up long past the dawn
And set us free, never to return again
We need to keep ourselves alive long enough to die together
And make it through those rough and windy seas
They tell us all to strive to find a place that's always better
What a world to make us all so hard to please

It took a while to get here
And i'll still be here when you're gone
If this is gospel Lord then I've found religion
If I can only hold on

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

If this is gospel Lord then I've found religion
If I can only hold on

Down the back roads of our memories there's a town we used to know
That will forever be unchanged and unknown
We see that world as ghost-like photographs through a hazy front window
And soon forgot about the innocence we've shown
Now the boys are counting cards as we move further down the road
Trying to leave this city behind
But the highway wind with the windows down is getting mighty cold
Trying to stay on that straight and narrow line

It took a while to get here
And i'll still be here when you're gone
If this is gospel Lord then I've found religion
If I can only hold on

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

If this is gospel Lord then I've found religion
If I can only hold on
