Gregory Porter - Holding On Lyrics




Weight of love on my shoulders
I thought that it would be easier than this
I found my heart had grown colder
But the warmth of your kiss, I can't dismiss

Though my past has left me bruised
I ain't hiding from the truth
When the truth won't let me lie right next to you

But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it

Holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on

I've seen times that were harder
I remember the taste of bitterness
Won't you help me, my father?
Help me fall in the love that I have missed

Though my past has left me bruised
I ain't hiding from the truth
When the truth won't let me lie right next to you

But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it

Whoa
Whoa
Holding on
Holding on

But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it

Holding on
Holding on
It keeps holding on
It keeps holding on
It keeps holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on
Holding on

    GREAT TRACK!

  48. Seb Coe

    What a voice

  49. Michelle Torez

    My favorite song from Gregory Porter! Really beautiful. I don't know if it's my speaker system, but the sax solo is far too loud and have to turn the music down during this then turn it back up.

  50. Lady Tia's T-shirts n Designs

    Stop letting your past stop u from loving again.Let it go and STOP HOLDING ON TO IT

  51. Georg Dimitrofff

    Great music mates !Bravo.

  52. Mark Lobban

    This man is out of this world. He should be bigger On the world stage

  53. Martin Espinal

    Powerful performances from a peerless personality predisposed to puncturing our perceived notions of what a Porter can do. Break hearts, crash through walls and opening minds, the least that we get from Gregory's voice. His is a unique talent packaged for mass consumption as the lyrics ring so true. Truly enjoyable.

  54. Jaqueline Lopez

    😍😍😍😍

  55. Jay Love

    Sounds good I love it

  56. TheJughead77

    318 c*ts Lol!

  64. Brenda Johnson

    His voice is hypnotic

  65. Joyce Cunningham

    This is what music should sound like.

  66. Joyce Cunningham

    I can't wait to hear him at the Dell Music Center with Patti Labelle, 8/23/18

  67. Towanda Eve Savage

    I am not well today and here lies the 2nd phase of my healing. Selah~

  68. Edward J. J. Schauer

    saw him last night in Toronto ...amazing performance!!

  69. JTConner

    To me this is the only version that has meaning. The fast and funky version seems to defeat the purpose of the lyrics.

    JTConner

    tough crowd

  70. John
