Hold Your Nerve [feat. Paul James]

by pedestrian zero



I'm not sure (ever) but I think it's possible for love and decency to win the day. I know, I know, it feels a long way off, especially lately. But we could do it. We just need to hold firm.



Take one life or take them all
Indifference doesn't need to make that call
I've been hiding, I've been feeling small
But then I noticed that we're all small

Keep on, hold your nerve
Don't back down, no need to swerve
I think we've got this; it can be won
Hold the line everyone

They'd like you cowed and tasting fear
Your anger misdirected, insincere
For all the lies I think it's crystal clear
We stand together and we persevere

If we fight this thing
and all is vain
but love remains
we still win
we still win
