about

(Chapman)
Produced by Doug Davis and MBG
Mixed and engineered by Doug Davis

lyrics

like clockwork, she dances
across the room as the band plays
she says, “it won’t last, it always
ends too soon these days”

And the band begins her song

she whispers “time cries” (and means it)
and “all I have is yours”
the lights die, she leans in and asks
“is there something more?”

and as the band begins her song
she begins to sing along

she sings, “I’m holding on, holding on to you.
holding on, holding on, it’s true.”

the noise breaks, she speaks out
but no one seems to hear
“whatever it takes, I’ll reach out”
begins to draw me near

but as the band begins her song
she begins to sing along

she sings, “I’m holding on, holding on to you.
holding on, holding on, it’s true.”

she keeps the pictures of the ones she left behind
and they look the same as yours & mine

like clockwork, she dances
across the room as the band plays

and sings, “I’m holding on, holding on to you.
holding on, holding on, it’s true.”
and sings, “I’m holding on, holding on to you.
holding on, holding on, it’s true.”

and as the band begins her song
she begins to sing along
