Hold On, Hold On

The most tender place in my heart
Is for strangers.
I know it's unkind,
But my own blood is much too dangerous.
Hanging round the ceiling half the time.
Hanging round the ceiling half the time.

Compared to some I've been around,
But I really tried so hard.
That echo chorus lied to me
With it's hold on, hold on, hold on, hold, on.

In the end I was the mean girl,
Or somebody's in-between girl.
Now it's the devil I love.
And it's as funny as real love.

I leave the party at three AM,
Alone thank God,
With a valium from the bride.
It's the devil I love.
It's the devil I love.
And it's as funny as real love.
And that's as real as true love.

That echo chorus lied to me
With it's hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.
That echo chorus lied to me
With it's hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.
