Holding On For Life lyrics


Girl, take a seat
Rest your little bones
The secret's safe in my hands
Tell me 'bout the years
And let me buy an hour
Maybe help me to understand

Ain't nobody calling
Ain't nobody home
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE


Lightin' up a cigarette,
Burning in the cold
Waiting in the street for your man
You trying not to look so young & miserable
You gotta give the kicks while you can

In the lighter corner,
Sitting on your own
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE

Where you make me lone
To another time
Still you have to carry on, yeah
Nowhere else to go & you never know
What to hide and what to show, noo!

You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
You're holding on for life
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
