#TBT Wilson Phillips – Hold On

Occasionally, I’ll feature an old song in honor of the internet’s favorite meme #tbt (throwback thursday.) Hold On is my go to song for motivation and inspiration and I will crank the volume on this one when I need a boost. Lyrics are below and speak for themselves.

I know there is pain (I know there is pain, I know there is pain (echo))
Why do lock yourself up in these chains? (these chains, these chains (echo))
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind, mmm
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

Ooh some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you gonna let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day (one more day)

You could sustain (you could sustain , you could sustain (echo))
Mmm or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness (no baby)
You got yourself into your own mess (ooooooo)
Lettin’ your worries pass you by (lettin’ your worries pass you by)
Baby don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change your mind?

Noo noo, some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way (oh things’ll go your way)
Hold on for one more day

Breakdown

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day
And you break free from the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold for one more day
And you break free right from the chains

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye (and say goodbye)
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know (no) things can change (no)
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day, yeah
Can you hold on

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on
Can you hold on
Mmm… Can you hold on baby
Won’t you tell me now
Hold on for one more day
Cause it’s gonna go away

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
Can’t you change it this time
Make up your mind
Hold on Hold on
Hold on Hold on, baby hold on
Turn around, Just turn around baby
Hold on for one more day, Cause
It’s gonna go your way

  1. In somewhere around 2008 or 2009, my mom was looking to get rid of some CD’s and asked if I was interested in them before throwing them in the give away bin. At the time, I was fourteen or fifteen and always looking for new music. So I took them all and eagerly listened to them; Wilson Phillip’s self-titled album was one of them. I absolutely love this song…one of my college friends could not figure out how I knew all the words to it when it came on in Bridesmaids, since she had never heard of it before. I mean, it was popular a few years before we were even born. 🙂

    1. Britta, how great that you snatched this from your mom’s castaways. I discovered lots listening to my mom’s albums. It was popular at the time, but I think the song really holds up.
