Description

Looking through these old photographs

You put together before you passed

Familiar faces I don't know the names of

Relatives you once dearly loved

Hold on tight, hold on

It'll be over soon

Life is short but can feel so long

Like a night without a dawn

A long road and a dead end street

With the same old song on repeat

Hold on tight, hold on

It'll be over soon

Hold on tight, hold on

It'll be over soon

I remember the doctor's chair

The waiting room, my mom was there

Called my name my time had come

She held my hand looked on with love

Hold on tight, it'll be over soon

Hold on tight, it'll be over

Hold on tight, hold on

It'll be over soon

Hold on tight, hold on

It'll be over
