She puts on her face as she cries
Same as yesterday, she does not believe he lies
Shading over blacks, reds, and blues
Wearing tear-drop tracks, she can't ever bear to lose
She's holding on all with all her might

He stares at his hands in the bar
Tries to understand why things are the way they are
All his promises in his glass
He knows what he is so he never takes a pass
He's holding on with all his might

Things won't be alright, alright?

She waits up all night worrying
Sees the morning light but she does not expect a thing
He is fast asleep at their door
Fingers around his key
He could only find the floor
They're holding on all with all their might

Love can't win this fight, alright?
