"Hold" as written by and Christopher Lane Conley....
Oh well
You've got me under your spell
And I don't think that I'm kidding around
I don't think I can forget you now

I once sat up on my roof
And examined the planning of my town
I saw the structured grid and pavement cutting through grass
And I remembered the cold of winter running up the legs of my pants
I picked the nicest lawn
And imagined the two of us rolling around down along the ground

I saw myself touch your face
And I noticed jets begin to race above our heads
And I pinched my arm and remembered how much you hate me
I remembered the fact that I can't see what you need...

And I'm too stupid to be aware of the beauty that you give this place and
How shitty this town would seem without you in it.
When you aren't around, I let the shades fall down to shut out all the sun's light
And make myself feel all right
What am I doing with my life?

Oh well
You've got me under your spell
And I don't think that I'm kidding around
I don't think I can forget you now

Remember the only thing we need sometimes are chilly nights and warmer
thighs
Cause nothing's like being held...sometimes

    General Commentthis is such a great song it seems all nice and happy till the line "and i pinched my arm remembered how much you hate me" so pretty much what it is all about is chris had this girl (which he wrote the song for...a x-mas present to her) who broke his heart and he cant stop thinking about her and remembering the good times, hence "got me under your spell" but he is trying his hardest to block her out of his life, but she was so special he cant and he just needs someone to hold, comfort, and console him....wow he is frigin amazing...a genius...and my idol...WOW

    General CommentSaves the day just has a way of saying stuff for you in songs. They are my favorite band, and remain the best. Hold goes out to Aleita.

    General CommentI dont know if I would be alive without this song, it comforts me unbelievably. I loved this guy so much, and he basically one day told me, that he didnt want to be wiht me anymore. I think about us all the time and it's weird cause I'm used to imagining us together, just like in the song, and now I have to remind myself that he doesnt want me anymore, and that i cant ever have him hold me again.....

    General CommentThis is such a good song it's very real with it's emotions.
    I like when Chris says "nothings like being held" the whole c.d. I'M SORRY I'M LEAVING is amazing.

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite acoustic saves the day song, the lyrics are so adorable. My favorite line: I picked the nicest lawn and imagined the two of us rolling around down along the ground. Nothing could be cuter.
