NateWantsToBattle - Hold On To You Lyrics

I've done my best to look inside
But I found nothing
No shame no pride
I need something to hang on to
I miss when you were here by my side

They dress you up to fit the part
Believe that you don't have the heart
Now I've grown so sick of running
To find I'm only at the start
I'm at the start

They can call us heartless
Hollow vessels of what we used to be
Don't you forget about me
Now commit this to your memories

They say that we're nobodies
Only shadows we're meant to fade
But I can't believe that it's true
You're a memory I can't lose
I'll hold on to you

Please remember
Remember who I used to be
Who am I?
Who am I?
I can't find my way to reality

Got it memorized?

And my heart's a battlefield
And there's a war waging
A storm is raging on
But I won't forgive myself
If I fade away gone and forgotten
If you disappear
Then would you fear that no one would miss you?
Well you're wrong because I'm not
Letting go of the days we shared

They can call us heartless
Hollow vessels of what we used to be
Don't you forget about me
Now commit this to your memories

They say that we're nobodies
Only shadows we're meant to fade
But I can't believe that it's true
You're a memory I can't lose
I'll hold on to you
(Hold on to you)
(Hold on to you)
I'll hold on to you, yeah

Remember remember
Please remember who I used to be
Who am I? Who am I?
I'm a puppet in their game

Remember remember
Please remember who I used to be
Who am I? Who am I?
I'm a puppet in their game

They can call us heartless
Hollow vessels of what we used to be
Don't you forget about me
Now commit this to your memories

They say that we're nobodies
Only shadows we're meant to fade
But I can't believe that it's true
You're a memory I can't lose
I'll hold on to you

  1. Sentinel Gamma

    Do more of this. Please.

  2. Meagan Phillips

    it's crazy how much better this song gets when i actually understand the lyric's. got it memorized 😭

  3. MushuChan Luna

    To be honest, I love this song better, when it was a Five Nights at Freddy’s song...
    Way back when... but still, Nate, why would you change it?! It took me a few years (5 or maybe 4 years ago, when I first listened to it on Spotify).. to finally find this song, WAY back when it was a FNAF *ORIGINAL* SONG.. No really...

    i’m sad, I miss you. *How did this happened?*

  4. digiteen99

    Always come back to this amazing song ever since i saw it release

  5. Scarlett Blackesley

    When you love Kingdom Hearts and besides, rock metal music. I don't know why people dislike the screamo part, it's epic because they put the rough, soft and feeling of the characters so well. (◡ ω ◡) 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

  6. Mr.Random Gamer

    I love your music so much you deserve success

  7. InterpretTheSilence

    I wish this was available on iTunes in the US. 😢


    f, I just came back to this song cause I found it in my iTunes like 4 years after getting it, and I'm from the US. Did it get taken off?


    KaidenPeridot I never even looked beforehand since I recently got iTunes, and the only thing that exists on there is the Instrumental version of this song.

  8. In The Making of

  13. Gillian Castle

    Am I the only one who can see this as the main theme of an anime starring Roxas, Axel, and Xion?

  14. Caira Senpai


  15. Pendragonz

  16. X Phantom

    *Got it memorized?*

  17. YungChopz


  18. Felicity Richards

  24. The Slowest Pizza

    Dammit, I can't stop listening to this song. I've practically got it memorized at this point.

  28. Connor Walker

    2:38 I just realized that this section is a variation on Xion’s Theme.👍

  29. Blizzarga Gaming

    Hey can someone message me if this song is on spotify?

  30. Sherri

    I'm seeing a lot of people talk about someone named xion in the comments. Look, I've played all the games, and I have no idea who this person is. Y'all are wierd.

    God damn it Battler/Tom/Zucc

    Obviously not 3


  31. ShiroALM

  33. S T

    They can call us heartless
    Just a shadow we're meant to fade
    They say that we are nobodies
    Hollow vessels of what we used to be

  55. Joachim Lee

  56. Joachim Lee

    Roxas vs Xion

    Aterwards Xion disapears

  57. Roxas XIII

    Two things I thought you could never combine, Kingdom Hearts and metal.

  58. RookieBug 97

  60. TryHard _Gamer

  61. Faizal Amir Bashiira

    Tbh this really fit to be the next KH series, for Re:Mind maybe?

  62. Adolfo Andriguetti Fala Sério

    2019 and still listening to this song <3

  63. Jolty

    4 years later and just noticed how deep and true to the game it is

    Ian Comtois

    You probably needed the four years for a college degree, majoring in Understanding Kingdom Hearts Lore.

  64. UltraUltimatium

    Its not on Apple Music anymore 😡

  65. End Message

    is it just me or does the intro sound like "I am" from hands like houses ? song is kick ass tho nate! ^~^

  66. Sentinel Gamma

    Definitely your greatest song I've heard so far.

  67. Sora Kingdom hearts

    This video is fantastic. As a fan of Kingdom hearts I say it with all my heart

  68. ThatYoutubeGirl

    Guys...we NEED to start a petition to get this put into Kingdom Hearts!

  69. Poison Bandit

    *now get this committed to your memories* is Nate's version of *got it memorized* and I legit imagined Axel saying that

  70. Alex Mercer

    My spoon heard this, now it's a Buster Sword.

  71. TheParagon

    I love the line “commit this to memory” Cause it’s Axels original “got it memorized?”

    Ian Comtois

    And we remember it. "Inside people's memories, I can live forever!"

  72. Joachim Lee


  73. Universal Johnny

    How the Fuck have I went 4 years without hearing this???

    Universal Johnny

    But I do still have to say, Lizz Robinett is bae

  74. TheGreekHunter

    I love this song, but it could do without the screaming like your in some kind of heavy metal rock band
    Great job though, this song captures how Roxas, Axel, and Xion felt

  75. Joachim Lee

    Nate this kingdom hearts song is awesome

  76. DisneyMarvelDCfan 94

    How come this song isn’t available on Apple Music in the United States of America

  77. Celly

    I wonder what the more menial everyday tasks are like in Org. 13. Like, when they got Xion, what did they do about the chair? D2D the shit in, or get it crafted by someone and get it delivered? What about food duty?

  78. JazzlynnTheFNaFfan

    I plan singing this for a solo at school.

  79. Certain End

    Who's Xion? More like whose Xion, amirite guise?

  80. Sasha Belle

    Are you gonna make another song for kh? Since the 3rd game came out? It would be wonderful!

  81. Keynines animation

    four years later: **pops up in recomandation now**
    me:i love this but why now

  82. K Plays

    My gosh this kills me emotionally. Axel, Roxas, and Xion had such great friendship to have it end in a really sad tragedy. They were my favorite group of friends in that series.

  83. Dark Fur

    The thumnail reminded me of kirishiM

  84. Lilac Milton

    The virgin KH3
    >Characters die before climax, revived immediately after. Sequence only exists to give Sora some semblance of human emotion, though any of that normal emotion is quickly thrown out the window, his usual cheeriness returning as he goes to bring them back
    The chad KH 358/2
    > Primary character dies at the climax of the game, accompanied by an actually pretty deep meaningful line, doesn't return for the remainder of the game, they're gone. At least, until they come back in 3 with seemingly no explanation. Not that i noticed at least.

  85. Ice Hurricane Gaming

    I will always love how these types of videos are made.

  86. Nate the Great

    my friend love kingdom hearts but does not like this song I have no idea what's wrong with him.

  87. Zagory

    I dont know nothing about kingdom hearts and this song has me crying 😭😭😭😭😭

  88. Namless PKX

    This song use to hit hard in the feels until kh3

  89. Annamae M.

    Hey just wanted to let you know I came across a video earlier (kingdom hearts related) and someone was singing lyrics that I think are from this video, so you may or may not want to check it out. The name of the girls album is Hearts Intertwined and I think name is Lizz Robinett, shes on YouTube

    Onion Ninja

    Annamae M. Actually it’s the other way around

    Annamae M.

    @Onion Ninja oh my bad, my mistake. I only saw her new stuff and not her old stuff and had heard this way before her content. you are right. i stand corrected haha

    Onion Ninja

    That’s alright

  90. Wild The Dragon

    "Only Shadows we're meant to fade"
    Surely I can't be the only one to notice that in We Are Ignited a common phrase is "You're not a shadow, you won't fade"?

  91. Goku x Sephiroth

    Oof. Just after playing the game, this hurts

  92. dagga19k

    Wow, Nate, you've almost reached 4 millions views with this one!! That's amazing! Roxas, Xion and Axel are the best trio! 😀

  93. Sazegawa Jun

    HELLO 2019

  94. Be'Lynn Short

    I absolutely love this song even though I’ve never played Kingdom of hearts but I did get the summary of the whole series and it’s pretty good and I’ve Been listening to this song for years!

  95. Aubrey Ann Pineda

    I’ve got this song memorized 😉

  96. Tai Stokes

    Xion's real theme is "Don't Speak Her Name!"

  97. DisneyMarvelDCfan 94

    How come this version of the song isn’t available through Apple music

  98. Obadiah Ray

    I really like this song :)

  99. SOL F
