"Hold on to me" as written by and Michael Edward Timmins....
If you offered me a shade of blue
Would I return it saying that it was too
Dark or light?
Or would I see it for the precious thing
That it might one day be?
Hold on to me

If you offered me a point of view
Would I dismiss it saying that it was too
Black and white?
Or would I see it as the special thing
That it would no doubt be?
Hold on to me

I'll hold on to this gift we share
It is as slippery as it is rare
I'll hold on to that feeling
Of waking and finding you there
I'll hold on to you and you hold on to me

If I asked you for a simple thing

Would you do it without too much thinking or fuss?
Would you see it for the precious thing
That it would surely be?
Hold on to me

Hold on to me
Hold on to me

    General CommentThis is a BEAUTIFUL song, softly and expertly sung by Margo Timmins. It's about getting the most out of EVERY moment of your life by taking the time to properly observe and appreciate all that is around you. Most of us rush through life like cars speeding down a highway, ignoring what is on the left and right and focusing ONLY on our present destination. The line "Hold on to me" is equivalent to "take time to smell the roses". Listen to your partner, to those around you. Take the TIME to really HEAR THEM. Breathe deep, soak in the stuff of LIFE. Life is NOT about "getting things" or "going somewhere"; it's about EXPERIENCING all that it means to be ALIVE. This way of living is "slippery as it is rare" because we all experience it only BRIEFLY from time to time (Sunday afternoons?). So sad, but so true.
