Faithfull, Marianne - Hold On, Hold On Lyrics



The most tender place in my heart is for strangers
I know it's unkind but my own blood is much too dangerous
Hangin' round the ceiling half the time
Hangin' round the ceiling half the time

Compared to some I've been around
But I really tried so hard
That echo chorus lied to me with its
"Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on"

In the end I was the mean girl
Or somebody's in-between girl
How it's the devil I love
And that's as funny as real love

I leave the party at 3 am
Alone, thank God
With a valium from the bride
It's the devil I love
And that's as funny as real love
And that's as real as true love

That echo chorus lied to me with its
"Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on"

That echo chorus lied to me with its
"Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on"

    HOLY FUCK I STILL GOT GOOSE BUMPS !!!!!!!!!!

    Marianne is one of Neko Case's idols, so she's naturally gobsmacked by this rendition. I much prefer Neko's much more ethereal and haunting version. Nobody would implore another to "hold on" in such a deep voice. Not convincingly, anyway.

    Tim Murphy

    Tom Waits, 'hold on'?

  3. Mary Mac

    I like this version, more raw when Marianne sings it.
