Alabama Shakes - Hold On

Bless my heart
Bless my soul
I didn't think I make it
To 22 years old

There must be someone up above
Singing come on with me
You gotta come on up

You gotta hold on
Yeah you gotta hold on
So bless my heart
And bless yours too

I don't know were I'm gonna go
Don't know what I'm gonna do
Well must be somebody up above
Saying come on with me
You got to come on up

You gotta hold on
Yeah you gotta hold on
Yeah you gotta wait
Yeah you gotta wait

But I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait
So bless my heart
Bless my mind

I got so much I wanna do
I ain't got much time
So must be somebody up above

Saying come on baby girl
You got to get back up
You gotta hold on
Yeah you gotta hold on

Yeah you got to wait
Yeah you gotta wait
But I don't wanna wait
No I don't wanna wait

You've got to hold on
When the world ain't treating you good
You gotta hold on
When everybody lookin' at you funny
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on

NPR named "Hold On" the fifth best song by a woman or non-binary artist in the 21st century, saying of the song: "Despite her ability to quickly transition from a sultry croon à la Janis Joplin to a bellowing, often disembodied howl, it's the lyrical wisdom that masks Howard's young age and makes this song special. "Hold On" is not just a mantra offering the encouragement needed to get through life's rough patches; it's a timeless song that wouldn't work without Howard's ability to interweave a myriad of emotions with raw honesty"
