Life Holds On

One of my very favorite songs. Superb arrangement and killer vocal. Get it.

Believe that life can go on.

Life Holds On

by Beth Nielsen Chapman

I was swinging on the swings when I was a little girl

Trying to get a handle on the big, wide world

When I noticed all the grass in the cracks in the concrete

I said, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way around anything”


Life holds on

Given the slightest chance

For the weak and the strong

Life holds on

There was a third grade boy that we knew in school

He was found face down in a swimming pool

And as they worked on that kid every minute was an hour

And when his eyes fluttered open we could feel that power


Sirens screaming down my street

Fading as they go

Whining somewhere far away

To someone I don’t know

Still, I say a little prayer

There’s always hope

Life holds on

Through the window in the kitchen I can see outside

My kids taking turns coming down the slide

I try not to worry as they grow a little every day

I’ve just got believe they’re gonna find their way
