Holding on for Life
Broken Bells Lyrics


Girl take a seat, rest your weary bones
Your secrets safe in my hands
Tell me about the years and
Let me buy an hour
Maybe help me to understand
Ooh ain't nobody callin'
Ain't nobody home
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love
You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love

Light another cigarette
Burning in the cold
Waiting on the street for your man
You're trying not to look so
Young and miserable
You gotta get your kicks while you can
In the lighted corner, sitting on your own
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love
You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love

Well you might belong to another time
Still you have to carry on here
No where else to go and you never know
What to hide and what to show, no

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love
You're holding on for life
Holding on for life (oh)
Holding on for love

Girl, take a seat
Rest your weary bones
Your secret's safe
In my hands

Tell me about the years and
Let me buy an hour
Maybe help me to understand

Oh, ain't nobody calling
Ain't nobody home
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

Light another cigarette
Burning in the cold
Waiting on the street
For your man

You're trying not to look so
Young and miserable
You gotta get your kicks
While you can

And in the Latin quarter
Sitting on your own
What a lovely day to be lonely

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

Well,
you
might belong
to another time
Still you have to carry on, yeah

No
where
else to go
and you never know
what to hide and what to show, no

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You're holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

Chiara Castagnoli

Ragazza, siediti
Riposa le tue ossa stanche
Il tuo segreto è al sicuro
Nelle mie mani

Parlami degli anni e
Fammi comprare un'ora
Forse aiutami a capire

Oh, non c'è nessuno che chiama
Non c'è nessuno a casa
Che bella giornata in solitudine

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amore
Resisti per amore

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amore
Resisti per amore

Accendi un'altra sigaretta
Brucia al freddo
Aspettando la strada
Per il tuo uomo

Stai cercando di non sembrare così
Giovane e miserabile
Devi prendere i tuoi calci
Mentre puoi

E nel quartiere latino
Seduto da solo
Che bella giornata in solitudine

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amore
Resisti per amore

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amore
Resisti per amore

Bene,
voi
potrebbe appartenere
a un'altra volta
Devi ancora andare avanti, sì

No
dove
altro andare
e non lo sai mai
cosa nascondere e cosa mostrare, no

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amore
Resisti per amore

Stai resistendo per la vita
Resisti per la vita, amorere.
Resisti per amore.

I think the message behind the video/song is: You find love. You get interested in other things, you leave love behind. You then realize that you want that love back, and go looking for it - often, in other places rather than with the person that made you feel that way originally(our first love). Meanwhile, your entire life passes you by, you realize you're old.. but you're still holding onto that first love. You hold on for life.

Some deep shit in this thread

@E D Exactly, it goes both ways. And I think that is also the point.

E D

Yeah...but...on the other hand she made no effort to join in/explore/expand until it was too late for her too so she also missed out - hung around waiting and expecting rather than doing or trying anything...🤷‍♀️

Couldn't have said it any better

I spent such a long time trying to find this song again after hearing it on the radio years ago and after a while I just gave up looking, but tonight I have the pleasure of listening to the song again! I feel so happy
