Video of the Week: Melee “Can’t Hold On”

I overheard this song over the radio, and I cannot get it out of my head. The yearning is so powerful. This is my current favorite. Melee’s “Can’t Hold On”. The lyrics below.

—————-

“Can’t Hold On”
Someone cries and it washes the street with tears
But when they are mine, they collect in my head for years
Rain or shine, still I’m standing on all I said
‘Cause it’s in my soul, carry on when the feeling’s dead[Chorus]
But if you can’t hold on
Let it go and come back in your heart
And if you can’t hold on
Maybe it’s not time for you
And if you can’t hold on
On your very last try
I’ll be there in the morning to pull you through

Someone dies late at night and I never know
And even if I did, so afraid of the face I’d show
I feel trapped and enslaved to this dark contrast
Need a feeling now, give me something that’s going to last

[Chorus]

I want to be free
I want to be free
I want to be free
Yes, I want to be free
I want to be free
Yes, I want to be free
Oh, I want to be free
Yes, I want to be free

You say you want to be free
But you can’t fool me
You say you want to be free
Oh, but you can’t fool me
You say you want to be free
But you can’t fool me
You say you want to be free
Oh, but you can’t fool me

Oh, and if you can’t hold on
You can’t hold on (Can’t hold on)
You can’t hold on (Can’t hold on)
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

Oh, and if you can’t hold on
Let it go and come back in your heart
And if you can’t hold on
Maybe it’s not time for you
And if you can’t hold on
On your very last try
I’ll be there so you know that you’re not alone
