"Hanging On" as written by and Michael Elvis Baskette Charles Massabo....
Last night I dreamed of you again.
You swim your way up through my veins into my soul until you’ve reached my brain, you are the greatest part of me.
So if dreaming’s the only time you’re near, then waking up will be my nightmare.
At that very moment I jumped out of my bed trying to remember all the things you said.
It was “Ronnie, I adore you, but nothing really lasts forever.”
You gotta let me know!
Don’t leave me hanging, and complicate it.
All we are is setting ourselves up to fall apart.
Don’t leave me hanging on!
I am a lesson you will learn.
I’d take away your pain and hurt, but I’m not strong enough to be your cure.
I am the battle you will lose.
You think that you are saving me, but I’m the one that’s saving you so.
And at that very moment you appeared in my bed, looked you in your eyes and then I finally said.
It was “Baby, I adore you, but this ain’t gonna last forever.”
You gotta let me know!
Don’t leave me hanging, and complicate it.
All we are is setting ourselves up to fall apart.
Don’t leave me hanging on!
This is all I have to offer, sacrifice me on your altar.
Like a lamb to the slaughter; slit my throat, I’ll die with honor.
Don’t leave me hanging, and complicate it.
All we are is setting ourselves up to fall apart.
Don’t leave me hanging on!
