Song Lyrics

Hold On
© Dr.Paul TP Wong and Francine Honey (SOCAN)

Sing me a sad song over and over
Tell me it’s alright to cry 
My heart is broken in a hundred pieces
Can’t stop the tears inside

I’m wandering in a desert
Dragging my feet through the sand
How did I reach this place?
Is this life, in my own hands? So I’ll


Hold On
‘Cause I am made of stardust
My soul can reach beyond the stars
The deeper the valley
The higher the mountain 
No  distance is too far
When you hold on to hope

Sing me a sad song, over and over
That tells me I’ll be alright
Opens my heart to look inside
Calms my chattered mind

I want to hear that small voice whisper
To my forgotten soul
They say it’s never too late to start again
What breaks your heart will make you whole

Chorus 2:
Hold on
‘Cause I am made of stardust
My soul can reach beyond the stars
The  deeper the valley
The higher the mountain 
No distance is too far
I’ll walk in the dark
So I can see the stars
Shine starlight through my heart
And hold on to hope
Hold on
Hold on, Hold On
Hold on to hope
