Lyrics

Esperanza Spalding - Hold On Me

I can hold my tongue for years, I don't mind

 

For in the night time silent I recite thousands of poems about you

 

Until one of them comes true

I can hold my breath for years, I won't get blue

 

On sweet sigh from you

In my memories the breath of life baptizes me through

 

Till the air is clear enough to breathe 'round you

I'll keep holding on

 

Such a thrill when you're near

But a staggering feet

Holding still when I feel

(?) I can hear my heartbeat, your love may never flow my way

Still I'm gonna keep holding on

 

Shouldn't I just let go

Since there's nothing left to do

Time just melts away and the current grows stronger

Pulling me downstream toward you

But until my love runs dry

I'm gonna keep holding on

 

Holding on, I can't help myself when you're near,

My head goes wild and my heart beats like an eager child

I keep holding on, holding on
