Lyrics for Hold On:

How it hurts me to see you cry
And I can’t think of something to say
Everything passes, my darling child
And better days are coming your way
Boys will be ruthless, and girls will be mean
That’s a story that’s as old as time
But when they catch you
Be sure they catch your smiling
Oh, darling, keep your head up high

You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You’ve got a life to live
Got your love to give
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You’ve got your life to live
So much love to give
You gotta hold on, oh-oh
Gotta hold on

When you get older
You’ll see the world’s great wonders
And how their beauty’s in the palm of your hand
It’s not in your schoolbooks
And no one can teach you
It’s a thing you gotta feel for yourself

But now you’re crying
Let me dry your eyes
Let them catch you smiling
With your head up high

You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You’ve got a life to live
You got your love to give
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You’ve got a life to live
So much love to give
Gotta hold on, babe
Just hold on
Oh, darling, hold on
