lyrics

Let her down easy if you can
It won't come easy
But she saved your life and gunna save it again
Coz I'm barely holding on
I'm barely here
But you keep me hanging on
Blind by fear, crumbling slowly right in front of your eyes

Then we're rolling like thunder in the heat of the night
Then we're chasing down a devil with warning signs
Let your body come and cover me with strange delight
Coz I'm barely holding on

I'm barely holding on
Barely holding on to you

You're a true posessive
Haven't learned your lesson yet
You grip me hard, pull me in
Pull me close to begin again
Take my love, take my life
Take it all when you like

Then we're rolling like thunder in the heat of the night
Then we're chasing down a devil with a warning sign
Let your body come and cover me with strange delight
Coz I'm barely holding on

I'm barely holding on to anything I had
In spite of you keeping me company
To then chasing a dream
In time, I go and let it out

I'm barely holding on

Then we're rolling like thunder in the heat of the night
Then we're chasing down a devil with a warning sign
Let your body come and cover me with strange delight
Coz I'm barely holding on

I'm barely holding on
