I can hold my tongue
I don't mind,
For within that time, silent, I recite thousands of poems about you,
Until one of them comes true.
I can hold my breath,
I won't get blue.
Once sweet sigh from you,
In my memory,
Is the breath of life that tides me through.
Until the air is clear enough to breath around you,
I'll keep holding on.
Mmm, such a thrill when you're near,
But a staggering feat:
Holding still when I feel folks can hear my heart beat.
Your love may never flow my way,
Still I'm gonna keep holding on.
Shouldn't I just let go,
Since there's nothing left to do?
Time just melts away,
And the current grows stronger,
Pulling me downstream toward you.
But until my love runs dry,
I'm gonna keep holding on.
I can't help myself when you're near
My head goes wild
And my heart beats like an eager child
