Songtekst

There you have it
You see this love regretting
There's something wrong again
But you had it in the palm of your hand

Your heart has started bleeding
You gotta get out, you're leaving
You're on your own forever
It's not the space or time or whether

You can leave
You want, you can't have
You need, you can't touch
You plead, it's enough, it's enough

There's something happening to you
Love can see right through you
In a world of make believe
Don't go throwing it all away

Hold on to love
Hold on to love
Treat it as a good thing
Be always ready with that electric feeling

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

The more and more you hear it
The more it seems to make sense
To hold love in the palm of your hand

But you think that round the corner
They're queuing up to hold her
But that won't make a difference in the end
There's never space or time or whether

You can leave
You want, you can't have
You need, you can't touch
You plead, it's enough, it's enough

There's something happening to you
Love can see right through you
In a world of make believe
Don't go throwing it all away

Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Treat it as a good thing
Be always ready with that electric feeling

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, baby, hold on
Hold on, hold on

Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Hold on to love
Don't let it pass you by

Hold on to love
There's nothing so important
Hold it in the palm of your had
Yeah, yeah

Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Hold on to love

Don't ever let it pass you by

Hold on to love
Hold on to love
Treat it as a good thing, treat it as a good thing
Treat it as a good, good thing
