"Hold On" as written by Steven Bowen, Keith Fair, Jeffrey Madden, James Houston, Jared Houston and Michael Fordinal....
This world
This world is cold
But you don't
You don't have to go
You're feeling sad, you're feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
You're mother's gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bear

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know

Your days
You say they're way too long
And your nights
You can't sleep at all
Hold on
And you're not sure what you're waiting for
But you don't want to no more
And you're not sure what you're looking for
But you don't want to no more

But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go through

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking, you're one step closer
Don't stop searching, it's not over
Hold on

What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what you're doing to me?
Go ahead
What are you waiting for?

Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking, you're one step closer
Don't stop searching, it's not over
Hold on if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know
Hold on

    General CommentThis Song is quite clearly about trying to show people, yonug people that suicide is not the answer, and that their areother epople who will have the same problems as you, and that their are people out their that care, it reminds me of a number of people i know who have committed or attemtped to commit suicide, if they could just have known this have heard this song, if they hadjust been able to open their ears then maybe just maybe they would be here today, people have been singing about this sort of stuff for a long time, but good charlotte do this perfectly their vocies are perfect and suit the emotion behind the song, hopefully this song can be used in the fight against the ever rising youth suicide rate, i know their is a organisation in australia that might have a look at using it for those purposes, they are called Here For Life and they are youth suicide prevention team. This song should be released as a single as i think it would do well in Australia and the Usa, who afterall have the two highest youth suicide rates in the civilised world.
    Anyway brilliant song and great meaning caps off a brilliant album.

    This prooves to you that they arent the people they sing aout in Lifstyles of the rich and the famous, and that is on hell of a relief, never loose reality gc, as long as you do that you will prosper, and survive, just like bad religion, pennywsie and other bands like that.

    General CommentI think this is a great song to listen 2 if you're depressed. I heard on some interview that they wrote it because of fans who wrote them about suicide but also because of when Benji went though a hard time as a teen. Its a pretty inspirational story since look where they are now after all they went through!

    General Commentthis is a great song it seems like they're talking to someone that's going through tough times and maybe doesn't understand that other people do go through things too, so they're just trying to tell them that it'll get better you know. been there done that or something. this song reminds me of a friend i have.
