1. Don't Let Go

From the recording Don't Let Go


This may not be the day I know to talk about the past
Your future’s blurred, your worries grow,
You don’t even know if your job’ll last
But while the moment breeds uncertainty and we might have to tighten now
Know every age has its trying days, it feels like the end but it cycles somehow
Hard times, they ebb and they flow
They claw in like a lion and fade quiet as the snow
So take my hand when the blues try to take control
And darlin’ just say no
‘Cause it’s our time, it’s all that we’ll know
And with a love like ours we’ll just bet on hope
So take my hand and if the world demands, “let it go,”
My darlin’ don’t let go
In the shadow of the fallout shelter he met his only bride
Through those days of fear and anxiousness they always saw life from the bright side
And he passed to me his philosophy that all you’ll have’s just what you see
So I’m my father’s son and we won’t be undone
And no one can foreclose on what love’s guaranteed
So we live in the world we live in, well what’s the news there?
But it’s only to they who give in that heartache takes over when things turn unfair
So when all the money’s gone – have mercy – but remember that’s not why we’re here
When no love’s gone bad, there’s no need to feel sad
We’ll live for each other till the climate is clear
