I Can't Hold OnMature

A song I wrote - dedicated to one of my friends who went through a terrible time. This song doesn't apply to me, darlings.

You were always being persistent
And today you took off your disguise.
Try hard as I may, I can't resist it
'Cause I'm not ready to say goodbye.
I reach for you, my will is crumbling
And then I open my mouth to speak
But you've disappeared and run from my life.
Now that you're gone, I feel weak.

I can't hold on any longer.
My heart is broken, my mind is lost.
The dark is taking me away from the world.
When I wake up, I find you gone.
I can't hold on, oh no
I can't hold on.

Deep inside I know you loved me,
Deeper still, I know that you still do.
My mind will never listen to my heart,
Even though I'm still in love with you.

I can't hold on any longer.
My heart is broken, my mind is lost.
The dark is taking me away from the world.
When I wake up, I'll find you gone.
I can't hold on, oh no,
I can't hold on.

The pain
The hurt
The suffering
Trying so hard not to forget your face
And because I'll never see you again
My mind turns dark while I'm in this place
How could you, my mind repeats again
See the scars running over my skin
I'm breaking down because you aren't here
That black hole opens and invites me in.

I can't hold on any longer
My heart is broken, my mind is lost.
The dark is taking me away from the world.
When I wake up, I find you gone.
I can't hold on, oh no
I can't hold on any longer
My heart is broken, my mind is lost.
The dark is taking me away from the world.
When I wake up, I find you gone.
I can't, I can't, I can't.
I can't hold on.
I can't, I can't, I can't.
Because you're gone.

The End
