HOLD UP lyrics
If I hold up- If I lean strong against the wind when the breeze blows me down upon my back and I fight upright again- If I hold up- If I smile wide when they offend- If I go against the grain enough I know it will one day soon smoothen, if i hold up. And it’s more than just a problem. It’s more than just a whim. I can see you never cared about me even though you say you did. I’m not impressed by those with power. I’m not impressed by those who grin when I hold up- If I hold up. Now, if I hold up I’m gonna let some light come in. I’m gonna hold it by its throat and ask where it wants me to begin. If I hold up when my fabric is wearing thin- When I’m hanging by the thread I let tangle up in competence- If I hold up. I’m gonna scratch and claw for solace. I’m gonna let forgiveness in. I’m gonna try to let it hold me. I’m gonna try to let it win. I don’t want to carry grudges, but I feel I’m forced to live under them until I hold up. And I’m best when I’m a martyr, but there is no one following until I hold up. If I hold up? If I hold up.
