"Part That's Holding On" as written by and Randy Armstrong Anthony Armstrong....
It all looks different now
But it was right in front of me
The memories fall around
Of everything I used to be
Can I let it go
When I still feel your echoes
I watched you disappear
But I can’t make myself believe

I gave it all
But you were fading
Where’d you go, all alone
I couldn’t stay
Another fall, through the dark
Of the shadows
I reached for you, only you
There’s still a part
A part that’s holding on

Can we call it fair
Or was it just a dire game
Who’s the winner now
When I can’t even speak your name
Caught inside the dream
When you were reaching back for me
Did you get lost inside
Or did you disappear

I gave it all
But you were fading
Where’d you go, all alone
I couldn’t stay
Another fall, through the dark
Of the shadows
I reached for you, only you
There’s still a part
A part that’s holding on

Never tried to see
What it’s like to be
The one who lost it all
Did you find your way
Is there still a place
Is there a part of you
That’s holding on
Still holding on

I gave it all
But you were fading
Where’d you go, where’d you go

I gave it all
But you were fading
Where’d you go, all alone
I couldn’t stay
Another fall, through the dark
Of the shadows
I reached for you, only you
There’s still a part
A part that’s holding on
A part that’s holding on

    General CommentOkay, so almost every online version of these lyrics omits the following line (right before "Never tried to see"):

    You went dark on me
    (Never tried to see
    What it’s like to be...)

    I mean, I know they stole it from Starset, but still!
