I'LL HOLD ON TO YOU

[verse 1]
From a prison cell in Georgia he can't get her off his mind,
it's like he has somehow stopped the hands of time,
cause the memories of the last time he saw her pretty face
wont go away they'll just stay and seem like yesterday,
every morning when he wakes up she's the first one that he sees
and ever night while he's sleeping she's running through his dreams,
cause her picture in his cell always lets him know
he'll hold onto her forever in his heart and soul..
[chorus]
I'll hold onto you no matter how hard it seems,
I'll hold onto us even if it's only in my dreams,
I won't let you go my love won't ever die
cause your the only one I've loved in my life,
I'll hold onto you until I'm dead and gone
and when I make it to heaven I'll still be holding on....to you
[verse2]
while her world is changing his stays the same,
some old food same old people and the same old pain,
he's been here for 2 years now with one left to go.
she still writes him letter but they're coming real slow.
he fears he's losing her cause he ain''t no fool.
he's done seen the state of Georgia break many hearts in two.
today he writes a letter and he makes it short and sweet.
when she opens up that envelope this is what she reads.
[chorus]
I'll hold onto you no matter how hard it seems,
I'll hold onto us even if it's only in my dreams,
I won't let you go my love won't ever die
cause your the only one I've loved in my life,
I'll hold onto you until I'm dead and gone
and when I make it to heaven I'll still be holding on....to you
[verse 3]
today is his lucky day it's his time to go home.
he's not had any letters are spoke to her on the phone.
he's standing at those gates all alone and broken down.
then from the shadows he hears a familiar sounds.
he knows this voice from anywhere lord how could it be.
what would put this kind of love in a women for me.
by the time he turns around he is smothered with a hug
and she whispers in his ear prison couldn't stop my love.
and she says...
[chorus]
I've held onto you no matter how hard it seemed,
I've held on to us every night in my dreams.
I won't let you go my love won't ever die
cause your the only one I've loved in my life,
I'll hold onto you until I'm dead and gone
and when I make it to heaven I'll still be holding on....to you
