Lyrics: Hold On To Me Babe

Back

As my aching head is begging for a sleep that will not come

I rise and walk the morning street again

I keep wondering how you’re doing and I wonder where you are

And I know I’ll be all right, but I don’t know when


Hold onto me, babe, wherever you may be

Hold onto me, babe, I’m with you always

There was something locked in side you like a secret burning pain

In a prison where you would not let me go

I felt sure we’d find the answer, when I awoke and found you gone

For just what it was, I guess I’ll never know


Hold onto me, babe, wherever you may be

Hold onto me, babe, I’m with you always

I keep hanging onto something, but I don’t know what it is

But at least I know the sound of my own name

I keep working just as hard and I see the same old friends

But there’s something deep inside that’s not the same

Hold onto me, babe, wherever you may be

Hold onto me, babe, I’m with you always

As my aching head is begging for a sleep that will not come

I rise and walk the morning street again

I keep wondering how you’re doing and I wonder where you are

And I know I’ll be all right, but I don’t know when


Hold onto me, babe, wherever you may be

Hold onto me, babe, I’m with you always
