about

When a loving relationship turns When everything is pushing down on you, you should try to hold onto the good things. It also about the small choices you make all the time that add up to who you are. Could you tell a little white lie?

lyrics

My redemption is slow burning,
With no stop signs and no turning,
When you got someone who believes they’re right,
Would you bring knife to a gun fight,
Your suffering while they’re learning,

When your body is going under,
And there’s something you gotta find,
When your god is out of thunder,
And you’re walking on the wire.

Hold on tight to your heart,
Hold on tight to your heart,
When love goes dark,
Hold on tight to your heart.

Your secrets are worth hiding,
We’re living in a wasteland honey,
when you cover it in money it gets so exciting,
When you know something doesn’t feel quite,
Could you tell a little white lie?
It’s just half a heart, don’t tell me that’s too far,

When your body is going under,
And there’s something you gotta find,
When your god is out of thunder,
And you’re walking on a line.

Hold on tight to your heart,
Hold on tight to your heart,
When love goes dark,
Hold on tight to your heart

Are you so certain?
Of the people you are loving,
Are you always going to trust them?
Is their sanctuary a sin?
Are you so certain?

Hold on tight to your heart,
Hold on tight to your heart,
When love goes dark,
Hold on tight to your heart

Hold on tight to your heart,
Hold on tight to your heart,
When love goes dark,
Hold on tight to your heart

Hold on tight to your heart,
Hold on tight to your heart,
When love goes dark,
Hold on tight to your heart
