HOLDIN' ON

In the shadows running scared, the platform glows in the frozen air
Of all the girls who have ever cared, I’ve never known someone who dared to run
You were the only one to carry me away



We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Too scared to stay and we were too tired to fight
We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Waiting for a train tonight



As we wait the commuters stare, twenty-one workers unaware
Of the promise that you made me swear, to run until we find somewhere for us
You were the only one to make me feel this way



We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Too scared to stay and we were too tired to fight
We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Waiting for a train tonight



You know that I can’t wait to climb on that evening train
And I really don’t know where it will go
And I really won’t care if at last we get there and it starts to rain
I just want a different surrounding with nobody there that we know



Take that empty carriage there, we’ll hit the back and we’ll say a prayer
Got some cash and you’ve paid the fare, let’s ride until we don’t know where we are
You were the only one to want to run away



We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Too scared to stay and we were too tired to fight
We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Waiting for a train tonight

We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Too scared to stay and we were too tired to fight
We were holdin’ on, holdin’ on
Waiting for a train tonight
