Music Lyrics #6 – Hold On To Nothing (David Gray)


David Gray is a musical artist who changes my life with his songs and lyrics. He sings often of the pain of relationships, mostly of love. But this song, in particular, makes me think more about the pain of other types, including maybe bullying. Maybe you’ve heard of David Gray, maybe not. He had one big hit in the states many years ago, but there is so much music that he has above that song. This is one of them.

Hold on to nothing
Hold on to coldest steel
It chills you down inside
When you see just what is real
Paste it up and tear it down
Move it on along the rushing road
Seventeen Fahrenheit
Feel the winter grow

There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it down
There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it down
Nowhere to write it down
Write it down

Step down the alley
Walking against the stony crowd
Trying not to listen
But they shout so loud
Chew you up and spit you out
Crush you between its finger and its thumb
The world in all its anger
Oh and there’s always more to come

There’s nowhere to write it 
There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it down
There’s nowhere to write it 
There’s nowhere to write it
There’s nowhere to write it down
Nowhere to write it down
Write it down
