"Hold On (To a moment in time)"

Brian R. Baer


Hold on to a moment in time.
Wish I could hold on to a moment in time.

The minutes, the seconds, they're losing their power,
I can't keep a piece of my most precious hour.
Asleep or awake all my time slips away,
I'm selling my life off, eight hours a day.

Eternity wears a frown; perpetually distant, passing this instant.
Space, time and sound; now all fit together, but hardly forever.
What have we found? Searching unclearly for answers that can't be.

Life jumps around; a bang or a whimper --it couldn't be simpler ---
Hold on to a moment in time.
Wish I could hold on to a moment in time.

We struggle, we wander, we wonder, we play;
We make all the motions to get through the day.
The evenings, the mornings, they all pass away.
Nothing is left for a new voice to say.

Infinity molds the rules; strange and enduring, repelling alluring.
It starts with the dawn,
The first light of day breaks, light lingers the heart aches.
All fade away; we're touching and cheering, lamenting and fearing.
Dark comes anew; Man buries his sorrows, bravely faces tomorrow.
Hold on!

(*** repeat “Infinity” verse***)

Hold on to a moment in time.
Wish I could hold on to a moment in time.
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on!
