“And in the end, nothing really matters…”

Girl take a seat, rest your weary bones

Your secret’s safe in my hands

Tell me about the years and

Let me buy an hour

Maybe help me to understand

Ain’t nobody callin’

Ain’t nobody home

What a lovely day to be lonely

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life 

Holding on for love.

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life oh

Holding on for love.
Light another cigarette

Burning in the cold

Waiting on the street for your man

You’re trying not to look so

Young and miserable

You gotta get your kicks while you can

In the lighted corner, sitting on your own

What a lovely day to be lonely

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life oh

Holding on for love.

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life 

Holding on for love.

Well you might belong to another time

Still you have to carry on here

No where else to go and you never know

What to hide and what to show, no

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life oh

Holding on for love.

You’re holding on for life

Holding on for life 

Holding on for love.
