Holding On

I’m not gonna give up
Though it seems this fight will never end.
I’m not gonna give up,
But this road has been going on
And on and on, forever.
You know that I won’t ever give up.
I’m just a little tired.

I can feel myself drowning again.
Within my own mind I am lost
In spinning pictures and a sinking heart.
Still every moment I know why I’m here.
I know why I’m holding on,
And I’m not gonna give up.

For every moment that I lose,
I gain a deeper love for what I have.
My own eyes in a child’s face
And love to soothe my fears.
I know why I’m holding on,
And I’m not gonna give up.
I’m just a little tired.
