Xscape - Hold On Lyrics




[Verse One (Tiny):]
I can make any man do whatever it takes,
Yet I hesitate, sit 'em down or wine and dine and make a play.
There's more to love than you're thinking of,
If I can wait then why won't you my my my my love.

[Chorus:]
There's more to love then making love,
So why don't you just hold on.
There's a time for everything,
But I have got to know.
Hold on to love [repeat x7]

[Verse Two (Kandi):]
It's not too late to slow it down, settle down and appreciate,
All the love I'm showing you and giving you in other ways.
Soon enough my heart will say to you I do, to love always,
I'll give myself to you that day and my baby, oooh yeah yeah yeah.

[Bridge (Kandi):]
I don't want to be another one,
So you can say that you've had your way.
I'll show you I'm worth the wait,
Just hold on to everyday,
And we will know how far to go in time.

[Repeat Chorus]

Hold on to love [repeat x7]

Whoa whoa whoa
[Repeat x8]

[Repeat Chorus]

    Classic.

  39. Carla McElroy

    That's my jam my ringtone they killed that shit I love all of they music

  40. Dwayne Clark

    Baddest track on da album

  41. alshaze wright

    I don’t understand why people say kandi can’t sing!! Her voice so unique

    Nothing but hormones

    Apparently, a unique ability attracts hate. And they won’t admit that they just don’t like it instead of saying “she can’t sing”. They should be more specific when they say she *cant* if not then you just straight up hating! Anyways, I love her voice too! It’s sexy!

    Brandon Brown

    @Nothing but hormones this. a lot of ppl don't realize that there's a huge difference between saying someone can't sing, and not being a fan of their voice.

    Jerome Ashley

    alshaze wright you are very very very Beautiful in a unique way

    Encino Man

    People say Khandi can't sing because she can't.

    Franklin Askew

    @Encino Man you probably can't either....go lay down somewhere....how about that...!!!

  42. Aneva Jones

    My fav xscape song always.. Makes me think of how innocent I was the year this album came out, but sung these songs like I actually been thru sumn lol... Now as an adult I can truly feel them lol.

  43. Desmond Riles

    Still banging in 2018 like it just came out...."hold on to love"

  44. Gale Curry

    They need to perform this hit live!

  45. Latisha Miller

    Love this song🔥🔥🔥🔥

  46. Conc3it3d.Prxnce 8

    I *LOVE* This Song & The Harmony. Kandi & Tiny Did Their Thing🔥👏🏽👑 I Wish The Sisters Could've Sung On This, You Can Tell They Was Going Through It

  47. thickandcexi23

    Mannnn I remember the day this dropped 😂 my big Sissy (RIP) played this whole cd on a g ride mission with her bff to bust her Boyfriend cheating🤣😂 I was like 11 not know wtf any of this meant or the mission 🤣

  48. TheMsmoomoomama

    Who all said “ y’all betta sang this damn song”.... just listen to the vibe of this song.. man

  49. My Truth

    This song and "In the Rain" show Kandi and Tiny are dope as a duo

    ak170492

    Yes! But I thought Tamika Scott was on In the Rain? Not that I hear her, but when people mention that song, they just say Tocha was missing.

  50. 90sKhidd

    This song gets me so deep in my feelings

  51. Themisa Overton

    Tiny killed it, that voice ain't nothing to play with😘

  65. FINE AS WINE COOKING CHANNEL

    My favorite song off the album. My favorite hands down. Tiny and kandi never sounded so damn good. My favorite.

  66. ItzCamCam97

    Tiny tore that last part up gave me goose bumps 💕

  67. Shaina J

    The blend of tiny and kandi’s voices are everything 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 but let me tell you that doggone Tiny voice is so pure and the softness in her voice makes this ballad even more beautiful but Tiny and Kandi voices together works well because they voices play well off of each other

    Encino Man

    Khandi literally can't sing.

  68. destiny Campbell

    My my my love❤️😍😍😍😍😍

  69. Shariff Sheppard

    tiny and kandi ate this track for break fast lunch and dinner for real one of my fav songs on this album

  70. Marii Love

    I can make any man do whatever it takes
    Yet I hesitate, sit 'em down or wine and dine and make a play

    If I can wait then why won't you my my my my love

    There's more to love then making love
    So why don't you just hold on
    There's a time for everything
    But I have got to know
    Hold on to love [x7]

    It's not too late to slow it down, settle down and appreciate
    All the love I'm showing you and giving you in other ways
    Soon enough my heart will say to you I do, to love always
    I'll give myself to you that day and my baby, oooh yeah yeah yeah

    I don't want to be another one
    So you can say that you had your way
    I'll show you I'm worth the wait
    Just hold on to everyday
    And we will know how far to go in time

    There's more to love then making love

    DARRYL BENJAMIN

    Dope album

  71. ak170492

    Did the Scott sisters sing on this? I hear them nowhere, not even in the chorus. The chorus sounds like Kandi on the main melody, a lower Kandi singing along, and Tiny doing all the higher adlibs.

    Nathan Butler Jr.

    ak170492 I think it’s just Tiny and Kandi and I love it!

    Shaina J

    ak170492 now that I’ve listened to it multiple times (because I really love this song) I kinda hear them in the background especially latocha on certain parts when they say “whoa, whoa, whoa....” but I still agree kandi and tiny basically sung this song by themselves

    Shaina J

    ak170492 and also deep in the background vocals when they say hold on to love, love.....hold on to love, Love I hear both Tocha and Tamika

  72. Erika W

    Favorite slow jam from this album. Tiny did her thing.

  73. MySignatureBeauty Luv4Rebornsss

    Love this song

  74. Brandon Bowers

    This song was probably the beginning of the Tiny & Kandi duo. It doesn't sound like an Xscape song... the Scott sisters are not on this song.

    ak170492

    I knew it! I just asked that up top. I didn't hear them at all. Thanks for confirming!

    btchnotme

    Brandon Bowers Right. The Scott sisters are absent on this one and I actually love it. This is my favorite track from the Traces Of My Lipstick album.

    Brandon Bowers

    btchnotme yes. Kandi is doing most of the bgvs alone on this song.

    Nothing but hormones

    Theorizing if maybe because they wrote it themselves but idk. Just a theory.

    Alexander Phillips

    Brandon Bowers no I think you wrong. you can clearly hear Tiny one the background vocals as well.. They both doing the background vocals, they voices is just on top of each other. Tiny on top and Kandi on bottom

  75. Latoya Cross

    Still listening to this in 2017!

    btchnotme

    tamara dorsey That’s because this track was just Kandi and Tiny on all leads and backgrounds. No loud ass Scott sisters. This is actually my favorite song from this album.

    Sharese Hendricks
