For 5/27/18 ~ Hold On by Wilson Phillips

Time once again for #SLS.  I look forward to this each week.  Our hostess Helen with a little help from her friend has picked a theme to use over the next week or two.  Today’s prompt is “let go”.  Find more info here at the  rules and ping back.

I am just going to say it.  I can’t let go.  That’s my problem.  Well one of my problems.  I have multiple problems ya see.  Lol!

In an attempt to spin the prompt, I picked the opposite of “let go” which is “hold on”.  Yep I’ve been holding on for one more day for as long as I can remember.  Hope she is a fickle bitch.  And I’m fortunate, I know that.  Just that there are days man.  I’m telling ya.  Waiting for this cycle of worries to pass me by.

“Hold On”
I know this pain
Why do you lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin’ your worries pass you by
Don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change your mind?

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and
Break free from the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and you
Break free, break from the chains

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
If you hold on

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day,
If you hold on
Can you hold on
Hold on baby
Won’t you tell me now
Hold on for one more day ‘Cause
It’s gonna go your way

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can’t you change it this time

Make up your mind
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on

    “I know that there is pain
    But you hold on for one more day and
    Break free from the chains”
