Hold On

Michael Cannon – Hold On © 2015

What’s wrong? I see you there in the corner.
Why did you wait so long? Turn your back all the time.
Just once smell the roses in the evening.
Make a point to smile – it doesn’t hurt all the while.

Take a look at yourself, all the times you’ve been wasting.
You should be moving on with every breath that you’ve been taking.

Hold on, we look out for the other.
Take care of your life, you know you won’t get another.

No one’s life is a fairy tale, whether you’re meek or you’re bold.
Never the twain shall meet so look to your future –
it’s in front of you, it’s all around you.

Hold on, you’ve spent your life treading water.
It’s a wonder you’ve not drowned. You kept yourself from going under.

Take a look at yourself, all the times you’ve been wasting.
You should be moving on with every breath that you’ve been taking.

I know your life has been no fairy tale. At least you’ve proved that you’re strong.
But past is just history so look to your future –
it’s in front of you, it’s all around you.

Hold on.
