Hold On Tight Lyrics

Hold on tight - the communards

 

Thought my hopes had died that night

 

I saw the future slowly slip away

 

Seems we've got this great divide

 

Self-gain and greed have had their wicked way

 

Now now we've go five more years

 

And wasted tears won't wash this stain away

The days ahead look bleak for some

 

The feast for others has begun

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

 

How I felt despair that night

 

Our fears have surfaced once again shame

Ashamed at what they've done

 

By making it a little harder for me and you

 

Now I ask what can be done

Down these crumbling streets

 

A wind of change must come

As I take you in my arms

We will proudly walk will never run

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tieght to what you've got

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

 

Some have seen it all before

 

It wasn't all that long ago

 

They've sold us lies they've sold us lies

 

Glass houses in the city

 

Retreats at ile des chiens

Time to get up off our knees

 

And work to work to wards a brighter day

All the hopes I thought

I'd lost that night

Will give me strength to over come

 

Get up hold on

 

Get up hold on

Get up hold on

Get up hold on your god

 

Get up hold on

 

So

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

 

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

Baby want to want to got

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

Baby want to want to got

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

Baby want to want to got

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

Hold on tight to what you've got

Baby want to want to got

Hold on tight hold on tight

 

 

Hold on tight to what you've got
