hold on

Please answer the question and then ill be through
is there a place where we go to make our dreams come true
a secret hidden place where we all run away
to escape the burdens we face each and every damned day

A place where the sun shines and the black clouds go away
the place where we make love day after day
where the only sound is the birds and the bees 
flying high up above me as i look out on the sea

I can feel it calling in the air tonight 
just bring it on
as you sing this song 
give a thought to the fallen in every country
the ones who have died so that we can survive
to kill ourselves with our vices in the morning light

can you feel the new day comming to replace the night
as the stars turn to dust in the morning light 
when i look out my window i feel so proud
that im a man in this world and i feel alive
so alive i cant tell that my time is nigh
will be soon that i take my place at my grandads side


Please answer the question and then ill be through
is there a place where we go to make our dreams come true
a secret hidden place where we all run away
to escape the burdens we face each and every damned day

hold on
