Hold On Me (Esperanza Spalding)

I can hold my tongue for years, I don't mind For in the night time silent I recite thousands of poems about you Until one of them comes true I can hold my breath for years, I won't get blue On sweet sigh from you In my memories the breath of life baptizes me through Till the air is clear enough to breathe 'round you I'll keep holding on Such a thrill when you're near But a staggering feet Holding still when I feel [?] I can hear my heartbeat, your love may never flow my way Still I'm gonna keep holding on Shouldn't I just let go Since there's nothing left to do Time just melts away and the current grows stronger Pulling me downstream toward you But until my love runs dry I'm gonna keep holding on Holding on, I can't help myself when you're near, My head goes wild and my heart beats like an eager child I keep holding on, holding on
