Pierce The Veil - Hold On Till May (Acoustic) Lyrics




She sits up high surrounded by the sun
One million branches and she loves every one
"Mom and dad, did you search for me?
I've been up here so long I'm going crazy"

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3-2-1 where did it go?

Now don't be crazy
Yes now of course you can stay here.
You know we're going on ten years
Big deal, I guess you're official
I only said it 'cause I know what it's like to feel

Burned out and down,
We've all been there sometimes
But tonight I'll make you feel beautiful once again

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3-2-1 where did it go?

If I were you, I'd put that away
See, you're just wasted
And thinking about the past again
Darling you'll be okay

And she said,

"If you were me, you'd do the same
'Cause I can't take anymore
I'll draw the shades and close the door
I'm not alright and I would rather..."

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
Tell me where did you go?

  20. moya

    I always come back to this song everytime I feel like cutting or ending my life and today is one of those time

  21. jimin neutron

    2 years clean :)

    It was 4 years ago since i started cutting myself. And everyone was talking about me because i was still young back then :( they were telling stuff like i was just crying for attention and things like that. then, i met this guy and we became very close friends. he saw my cuts and i thought he would be disgusted and leave me. but, he chose to stay. turns out, he used to cut himself too. he told me to listen to this song. i cried while listening to it. after a few weeks, we fell inlove and became together. he used to kiss my cuts and scars and always reminded me of my worth. too bad, it was wrong timing and my parents didnt like him. but, instead of letting him go, we chose to fight for us. but, that was a mistake. i had to go away for a long time with no means to talk to him. i told him to wait for me.... he didnt. he fell inlove with my bestfriend. i started cutting myself again. and again. and again. until one day, i realized my worth. and that he wasnt worth it. turns out that i was the one that can heal me.

    now, 2 years after, im listening to this song again, but not feeling hurt anymore, but instead happiness.

    so hello to everyone with cuts and scars like mine. you’re all beautiful and you should love and save yourself before you do that to someone else ❤️

  22. Elena Salinas-crosby

    0:00 "OOF! my heart"

  23. Morgan Rose

    I listen to this song when I need extra strength. Sometimes it helps, but there are the times where it doesn't. Like tonight, I promised to not cut but everything became too much, from my friend saying that our friendship was fake and stress. It built up and finally collapsed

  24. Elena Salinas-crosby

    This song always helps me through dark times. It's amazing how music can save so many lives💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

  25. Cyreal Something

  28. Bellavia Campbell

    my girlfriend broke up with me and i don't have a reason to live anymore.

    Joe Navarro

    Yeah you do dude. Some relationships last, others don’t. That’s just apart of life. Idk your situation rn maybe you’ve gotten back with this person or something. But take every experience as a learning experience. No relationship is worth your life

  29. Johnnie Boi

    Everyone is killing themselves and I'm just trying to jam.

    "Hold On Till May"
    (feat. Lindsey Stamey)

    She sits up high, surrounded by the sun
    One million branches and she loves every one
    "Mom and dad, did you search for me?
    I've been up here so long I'm going crazy!"

    And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
    I heard the train shake the windows
    You screamed over the sound
    And as we own this night
    I put your body to the test with mine
    This love was out of control
    3-2-1 where did it go?

    Now don't be crazy
    Yes now of course you can stay here.
    Been in a touring band for going on ten years.
    "Big deal," she said, "I guess you're official."
    I only said it 'cause I know what it's like to feel burned out

    It gets you down,
    We've all been there sometimes
    But tonight I'll make you feel beautiful once again

    And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
    I heard the train shake the windows
    You screamed over the sound (over the sound)
    And as we own this night
    I put your body to the test with mine
    This love was out of control
    3-2-1 where did it go?

    If I were you I'd put that away
    See, you're just wasted
    And thinking 'bout the past again
    Darling, you'll be okay

    And she said,

    [Lindsey:]
    "If you were me, you'd do the same
    'Cause I can't take anymore
    I'll draw the shades and close the door
    Everything's not alright and I would rather..."

    And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
    I heard the train shake the windows
    You screamed over the sound (over the sound)
    And as we own this night
    I put your body to the test with mine
    This love was out of control
    Tell me where did it go?

  33. Isaac Rodriguez

    my best friend committed suicide yesterday.. me and her left off on bad terms. But now I regret not being their for her and looking for help.. every time I hear song or any song we would jam out too I think of her ... I can’t believe she’s gone and I am so heart broken...

  34. Haven Charlotte

  47. Catherine Maggot

    I’m not a fan of the band anymore but this song will always have a special place in my heart because of my best friend Timothy. Every time I miss him I listen to this song, I cry my eyes out every time but it brings back so many good memories we shared. I would give up anything to be able to listen to this song together one last time and let him know he is loved...

    I've had depression since I was 13 I'm 16 now , these 2 months it's been so bad , every morning I wake up crying , I saw ptv few weeks ago and it was the only night I was happy but I went home crying cause I was over , I was back in that pain :( I can't take it anymore, I'm coping my pain with drinking and weed and cutting , it doesn't last long and I skip class to go cry in the washroom, I haven't been in class for weeks :( , I just want to end it all tonight 😫💔 I just can't take this pain anymore !!!

    Daisy Idk

    diaamonds _k darling, you'll be okay (:

    Diy with natali

    diaamonds _k you are not alone you will be alright be strong

  77. Marii belle

    All these comments, so many strong people! If you still cut, stop it right now, it will be probably a hard time, but you have to END THIS story. Start a new one, part two, (your name) is stronger now. Go, go and live your life, don't start part two tomorrow, don't start it next week, or at new year. Start it, RIGHT NOW. Plot twist, the best character (you) isn't like that anymore, he or she is really strong, and will use his or her powers to live and end this book good! GO!

  78. Different World

  92. Allyza Joy

    comment section makes me cri. you all can do it! darling, you'll be okay :) stay strong and dont lose Hope. almost 2 years clean and counting! i remember the time i was suppose to end my life, i was broken, no self confidence, empty, i feel so ugly n a big loser. cant cope up with society's standards n i felt worthless + family issues where my own family degrade n keep telling me im stupid, idiot,worthless n all.
    bands like this is the only escape i had before, i felt fine n alive n hopeful evry time i listen to these songs but honestly, its only a temporal feeling. then all of sudden I met this man who fully accepted me. all of my flaws n imperfection, love me despite the fact i fail him evryday, many times I tried to run away from him, yet he still pursue me. a man named Jesus. he found me and saved me. saved me from all the lies the world is telling. i'm now a 1 yr Christian :) 1 peter 5:7 "cast all your anxiety to him, because he cares for you" there's hope n life through him, not just temporary but for eternity :)

  93. Dr. Luma
