Hold On was inspired by & written within an Irish Pub. While playing an open mic session back in the mid 00’s, one of the pub patrons drunkenly suggested that I write a song on the spot, which I agreed to – provided that the rowdy audience would join me in song. I channeled my inner-Damien Rice & began to play a slow four-chord waltz, assigning a simple la de da refrain to the audience. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a complete disaster.
good lovin’ ain’t that hard to find
but it’s hard to hold onto
& what they never tell ya
the best things in life are free
but that don’t mean they’re easy
& yes it’s true
that the times, they are a-changin’
but people stay the same
& that’s just the way it is
so hold on to the love you know is true
