Hold on Loosely
.38 Special Lyrics


You see it all around you
Good lovin' gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had
And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago (Who told me)

Just hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling to tightly
You're gonna lose control

Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in

It's so damn easy, when your feelings are such
To overprotect her, to love her too much
And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago (Who told me)

Just hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling too tight babe
You're gonna loose control
Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in
Don't let her slip away

Sentimental fool
Don't let your heart get in her way
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You see it all around you
Good lovin' gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had

Just hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling to tightly
You're gonna lose control
Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in
Just hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling too tight babe
You're gonna lose it
You're gonna, lose control

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Just hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling too tight babe
You're gonna loose control
Hold on loosely
But don't let go
If you cling too tight babe,
You're gonna loose control
Yeah, yeah, yeah

U know a band is great when their Live version is just as good as the album cut

@TheIkaika777 - Something else I noticed. In this video against the cd video. The second line ... "good lovin' gone bad". Listen to the difference in the singers tone. Higher in this video. The word "bad" is definitely sung in a different tone.

ra5928

@TheIkaika777 - You don't even notice the tempo difference? Seriously? Please ... Go to their video "If I'd been The One" and then watch the music video version. They sound almost the same. At 3 minutes 17 seconds of the live version you hear the lead singer throw in a couple of "whoops" not on the album. He does it a couple of more times. PLEASE.

This is a band that can cut an album in one take. There are a lot of bands like that. And oh yeah ... listen to the endings of each video. Unreal.

TheIkaika777

@ra5928, I already played the video against the CD, they’re lip-syncing.

ra5928

@TheIkaika777 - They weren't lip-synching. Put this video up against another video from the album. This version is played at a slightly faster tempo. Try this, open two windows and start both at the same time. Please ... 38 Special is an awesome band that can play a song exactly the same every time. I know.

@MusicMan - No they weren't. I answered Thelkaika777
