Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl

[Intro]
Reach inside and hold you close
I won't leave you on your own
Teach me the words I used to know
Yeah, I forgot 'em long ago
So hold the girl
Hold the girl
Hold the girl
Hold the girl

[Refrain]
Hold that girl
Hold that girl
Hold that girl
[Verse 1]
Sometimes I get down with guilt
For the promises I've broken to my younger self
Moving on, maybe I never will
'Cause I left you spinning on the carousel

[Pre-Chorus]
Been living without you
Been living without you

[Chorus]
Reach inside and hold you close
I won't leave you on your own
Teach me the words I used to know
Yeah, I forgot them long ago
I wanna rеmember
She is mе and I am her
So hold the girl
Hold the girl

[Refrain]
(You gotta) Hold that girl
(You gotta) Hold that girl (Ooh)
(You gotta) Hold that girl
(You gotta)

Sometimes I just wanna run away
Leave behind that old me, start again
Then I'll remember who I'm really made of
And she's been hide-and-seeking, waiting all alone

[Pre-Chorus]
Been living without you
Been living without you (Oh)

[Chorus]
Reach inside and hold you close
I won't leave you on your own
Teach me the words I used to know
Yeah, I forgot them long ago
I wanna remember
She is me and I am her
So hold the girl
Hold the girl

[Bridge]
Close to your heart
Never ever let her go (Never let you go)
They'll tell you to sit up, and shut up, and grow up
What the hell do they know?
'Cause the girl in your soul's singing on
And you owe her the world
So hold the girl
Hold the girl
[Chorus]
Reach inside and hold you close
I won't leave you on your own
Teach me the words I used to know
Yeah, I forgot about them so long ago

[Outro]
Reach inside and hold you close
I won't leave you on your own
Teach me the words I used to know
Yeah, I forgot them long ago
I wanna remember
She is me and I am her
So hold the girl
Hold the girl

"Hold the Girl" is the third single from Rina Sawayama's sophomore studio album of the same name. Written after a therapy session, the song takes a deep dive into Rina's confidence, telling a story of her becoming a better version of herself. ““Hold the Girl” was the first song I wrote for the record at the end of 2020 – I had gone to therapy and had a revelation, so I decided to write the song… That was the start of it, and then I started doing more intense therapy. I was crying before going into the studio and going into the studio to write about it.“ - via Press Release “I wrote this with Barney Lister and Jonny Lattimer in the first session I ever did with Barney. He was producing the song and I was throwing out all these ideas, like: ‘So, I want it to be country, and I want the beginning to sound like Bon Jovi, and I really also want to then do a garage drop.’ Luckily he agreed! It was a very, very hard song to balance: I think we must have gone back and forth about 20 times on the production, and then another 20 times on the mix. I was trying to make it really big and orchestral, but also a pop song. ‘Hold the Girl’ was the song that really unblocked me and made me excited to write again. It reminded me of how much fun you can have with production.“ — via Apple Music
