Hello stepping stone,
Wipe that dumb look off your face.
Well, I know I can't.
A quick stab back in the face,
A hit when you're down.

See, people are disposable,
And every now and then
Find a heart and mind
That match my own,
And those are
The only ones worth pushing for.

Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?

Well he can't see
What you do to me.
I read the lonliness on your face,
And I can really tell
You're really not okay.

See, people are disposable,
And every now and then
Find a heart and mind
That match my own,
And those are
The only ones worth pushing for.

Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?
Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?

There's a place in my mind,
Things are open wide,
And the last of innocence makes me wrong
Instead of right.
It's part of becoming
Accustomed to my body.
It's part of becoming
Accustomed to my body.

See, people are disposable,
And every now and then
Find a heart and mind
That match my own,
And those are
The only ones worth pushing for.

Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?
Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?
Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?
Oh, please won't you try
And just hold on tonight?

    General CommentThere are a few people that you come across in life every now and then that are worth putting effort towards. These are few and far between. So make the most of it. This song goes out to a good female friend of mine. She makes me quiver.

    General Commentfrom someone who has only found one person who's heart and mind match her own, this song takes on meaning for me. The line "just please hold on tonight" makes me think that letting go of someone just b/c ur unsure of your feelings is the biggest mistake you may ever make.

    General Commentpart of growing up involves leaving certain people behind, this song made me realize a lot of things about myself and my own "friends".
