The Daily Song: Chord Overstreet/Hold On

Trigger Warning:  This could be triggering for readers who have witnessed a suicide attempt or lost a loved one to suicide

I stumbled across this song on Spotify this morning.  The lyrics are completely haunting.



[Verse 1] Loving and fighting

Accusing, united I can’t imagine a world with you gone

The joy and the chaos, the demons we’re made of

I’d be so lost if you left me alone

You locked yourself in the bathroom

Lying on the floor when I break through

I pull you in to feel your heartbeat

Can you hear me screaming “please don’t leave me”

[Chorus] Hold on, I will want you

Come back, I still need you

Let me take your hand, I’ll make it right

I swear to love you all my life

Hold on, I still need you

[Verse 2] A long endless highway, you’re silent beside me

Drivin’ a nightmare I can’t escape from

Helplessly praying, the light isn’t fadin’

Hiding the shock and the chill in my bones

They took you away on a table

I pace back and fourth as you lay still

I pull you in to feel your heartbeat

Can you hear me screaming, “please don’t leave me”

[Chorus] Hold on,

I will want you Come back,

I still need you

Let me take your hand,

I’ll make it right I swear to love you all my life

Hold on, I still need you

[Bridge] I don’t wanna let go I know

I’m not that strong I just wanna hear you

Saying baby, let’s go home

Let’s go home

Yeah, I just wanna take you home

Hold on, I will want you Come back, I still need you
