Hold On - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

There's a girl that lives in the shadows
Of the street where the music plays
There she waits and looks from the outside
There's an angel in her face
But from her glass she sips a little comfort
From the boys she takes a little more
And she knows just how far she can take it
In a moment she's out on the floor
Hold on - she's got to keep a-moving
Hold on - dance with the light
Hold on - got to keep a-moving
Hold on - into the night

In her eyes they thought they saw a question
Maybe she is looking their way
As the night gets older are they wiser?
Who will take her? - no-one can say
Does she know just how they feel about her?
Can't she see she's driving them insane?
When the music starts playing again
They're saying...

Hold on - she's got to keep a-moving
Hold on - dance with the light
Hold on - got to keep a-moving
Hold on - into the night
