Solomon Burke & De Dijk ~ Hold On Tight

Het favoriete nummer in 2014 van mijn echtgenoot. 
My husbands favorite song in 2014 my husband.

De tragedies in Parijs houden ons bezig in gedachten en gesprekken. 
We kunnen en willen niet begrijpen dat mensen in staat zijn tot deze daden.

The tragedies in Paris are in our thoughts and conversations.
We can not and will not understand that people are capable of such acts.



I offer you peace
I offer you love
I offer you friendship

Solomon Burke & De Dijk - Hold On Tight (lyrics)

When you don't know what to do
And your mind is getting dark
And the fire that was burning
Has been reduced to a smoke and a spark

And every time things get hard
And you're worried right down to the bone
You carry on with what you know
You know you're not alone

Hold on, hold on tight
Hold on tight, hold on, hold on
Hold on tight with all your might
Don't let go, no, no, no, no, no, no
Don't let go

Now when you don't know really what to do
And your heart seems to skip a beat
When you don't know which way to move
And the heat starts to burn your feet

Don't leave me here by myself
I can't make it on my own
What would I do without you?
I want you to know together
We understand we're not alone

Don't let go, no, no, no, no
Don't let go

Hold on, hold on, hold on tight
Hold on tight, whatever you do
Please don't let go

No matter how hard the times
We have to carry on and on and on
When you don't know really what to do
I want you to remember in this life
You're not alone

Hold on tight
Hold on tight, hold on, hold on
Hold on tight, yeah, baby
Hold on tight, hold on to me
And don't let go, go, go, go, go, go

Hold on tight, hold on, hold on
Oh baby, hold on tight, hold on, hold on
Hold on tight with all your might
Don't let go

You know the fun
Don't let go, no, no, no, no, no
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
No, no, no, no, no, don't let go

Oh, don't ever let go, hold on, hold on
Hold on tight with all your might
Hold on, hold on, hold on
[Incomprehensible]
Sunday breaking, midnight shaking

Hold on, hold on, hold on to me, don't let go
Hold on, hold on, oh no, no, no, no, don't let go
Make me wanna moan sometime, don't let go
Hold on, hold on

    1. Dat is lief van je! Er is ook een mooie documentaire: Hou me vast - De Dijk.
      Solomon Burke overleed in 2010 net na het verschijnen van de cd van De Dijk met dit nummer.

  2. De Dijk... fijne herinneringen, hun live-optreden in mijn jeugddorp was in mijn tienerjaren mijn eerste "live concert!"... Mooi!

    1. Vroeger traden in elk zichzelf respecterend dorpshuis elk weekend bandjes op. Leuk was dat! De Dijk is mooi!
