Santana - Hold On Lyrics

Don't rush me just this once
I want to make this moment last
Slow down the pace, there's no hurry
I can't let another pass me by again
Let me be the one to say when I've had enough

Just let me close my eyes, memorize
The way things are this minute
So when you're gone I can go on
If memory can hold within it what I'm feeling
Should time try fading or stealing something away

Hold on, nothing's the same
Tell me why I feel this way
Life wouldn't be worth living without you
All along I've been the pretender
But now that's gone forever
Nobody's ever loved me like you do
Nobody's broken through

Got to concentrate, file away
Every last detail
Don't want to lose what's going down
I want to remember everything I'm feeling
Should time try fading or stealing something away

    ...time when music was good.


    Hermosa canción, mi canción favorita de todos los tiempos. Clásico atemporal de la leyenda y el prodigio del único prodigio de la guitarra Carlos Santana.

  21. giovani crvg

    Fico pensando, como esses caras conseguiam fazer tão lindas obras primas como essa música. Hoje o que dá ibope, afinal, criaram no Brasil a republicada dos idiotas. São essas músicas em posições sexuais bate estaca. E pior que vende.

    Geraldo Maria da cunha

    Little triva this song a cover of a Canadian singer Ian Thomas who did the original.

  43. Bubble Head

    Too bad it's not origanal , Ian Thomas 1981 wrote and sang this song .

  44. Aileen Marotta

    Desert Island material, FOR SURE! Even though this song isn’t his, his rendition is even better than the original. Carlos has so much feeling in his leads that blows me away. This song is not from my generation but every time I hear it, it’s like the first time and it never gets old or tired.

  45. Emmanuel Cisneros Solís

    2:50 Armando Peraza troll

    Carlos Santana's former wife, Deborah King, is simply gorgeous! She possesses a pair of the most beautiful and soulful eyes I've ever seen! from ~ 2:03~2:34 Sadly, Carlos and Deborah were divorced. A very nice and atmospheric video.

  77. Niagara Fallz
