can i hold you
(Music: Alice May, Words: Alice May)


Life is a melody, sing your song.
Words to a symphony, it won't take long.
Ready to run your life as you planned.
Ready to make your choice in the end.

Can I hold you, can I hold you now?
These dreams that you've been dreaming
will fade away somehow.
Can I hold you, can I hold you still?
We've gone through mixed emotions
and I know we always will.

You got to pay your dues, realize.
You got to sing the blues with tears in your eyes.
The great things in life will come for those who can wait.
Take off your painted smile, your masquerade.
