Hold On
Fabian Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hold me back

You think you can hang? cctually well you can't
We live in a world of supply and demand
cnd this was all just a part of God's plan
cw yeah, the world's about to find out who I am
It's GCD, that's the label forever
Listen don't worry about it's no pressure
Me on other hand see I'm ready for whatever
United as one homie we stand together
Slide through, they spin it like fast food 'cause mind you
You can catch me working in the bojangles drive thru
First I had to wait for my plate, well now it's time to
Spit a flow the spirit of Biggie gon' come alive to, wait
I couldn't break, I was breakin' down every door
Flaw never settle like 'cept when I settle scores
Tinted windows boy, that means mind yours
I put in overtime like a tied score
Success is down the road, death is around the corner
God is walkin' with me, the Devil's offerin' water
Was gonna call it quits but the pay phone was out of order
Before I was diagnosed with an instrumental disorder
Every time I come around I got your legs shakin
This here paper is what I'm chasin
My music play all over the world, stop hatin'
Over 61 countries, tell Jay I rock nations
You in the club like shoo shoo
I'm a boss making boss moves
You see a op you gon shoot shoot
That's how you and your gang move
I don't mess with no op
You dirty u gon need a mop
They put my cousin in a box
I knew that I would be on top
Fresh home, I need a starter kit
You don't know who you're messing with
Dang, I'm a greaseball
You soft and chewy like a cheeseball
We do not listen to rats
Run and tell that




The rap game I own that
Been moving forward, I ain't going back

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Fabian's song "Hold me back" depict a confident and determined mindset. The opening lines suggest that the listener may believe they are capable of handling any challenge, but the singer asserts that it's not the case. It introduces the concept of supply and demand, emphasizing that everything happening is a part of God's plan. The phrase "the world's about to find out who I am" indicates a strong belief in one's own abilities and a desire to make a mark.


The following lines mention GCD, which may refer to a record label or a collective the singer is a part of, symbolizing unity. The lyrics portray a sense of readiness for any situation, emphasizing the importance of standing together with others. The reference to working at a fast-food restaurant like Bojangles could be a metaphor for starting from humble beginnings and working hard to pursue one's passion. The mention of Biggie alludes to the influence and inspiration the artist draws from legends of the genre.


The lyrics continue with a sense of resilience, determination, and a refusal to settle for less. The mention of tinted windows suggests a need for privacy and implies that the singer is focused on their own journey, not concerned with others' opinions. The lines about success being down the road and avoiding death around the corner display a recognition of the challenges ahead but also a belief in the presence of a guiding force, with God walking beside them while the Devil tempts.


The second half of the song takes a shift in tone, with the lyrics highlighting the singer's achievements and dismissing any haters. It showcases the global reach of their music, with plays in over 61 countries and a reference to impressing Jay, possibly referring to Jay-Z. The lines about clubs, gang activities, and reinforcing a tough image display a defiance towards any opposition or negative influences. The lyrics express a determination to rise above difficult circumstances, such as a cousin being in prison, and a desire to maintain progress and never go back.

C'est une chanson écrite et composée par Lara Fabian, Rick Allison et Walter Afanasieff sous le label Sony Music France.

J'ai traduit les paroles en français. Si vous pensez qu'il y a des erreurs dites-le moi.

Je me rends compte que je n'ai jamais parcouru seule cette route
Je pensais que ma force résidait dans un endroit où la solitude n'existe pas
D'une certaine manière aujourd'hui je me trouve si forte
Debout ici toute seule
À me débrouiller toute seule
J'ai gardé à l'intérieur tout ce que j'avais besoin de dire fort
J'ai trop parlé, quand avec le silence j'aurais trouvé ma sortie
Il est temps pour moi d'ouvrir les yeux
Venir enfin à la vie

Accroche-toi à mon cœur
Accroche-toi à ma vie
Tout ce que je veux vraiment te dire c’est
Est-ce que tout ce qui est parti est parti pour de bon ?
Tout ce que je peux faire c'est tenir bon

Vivre chaque jour comme si c’était le dernier
N'essaye pas de te sauver de la douleur à venir, tu dois continuer
Si tu lèves les yeux, tu ne verras jamais une étoile en toucher une autre, elle se tient toute seule

Accroche-toi à mon cœur
Accroche-toi à ma vie
Tout ce que je veux vraiment te dire c’est
Est-ce que tout ce qui est parti est parti pour de bon ?
Tout ce que je peux faire c'est m'accrocher à ces peurs
Tiens bon, plus de larmes
Je ne regarderai pas en arrière
Je crois que ce qui m'attend est tout ce dont j'ai besoin
Je vais juste tenir le coup

Le vent s'est envolé
Le soleil est là
Ici pour rester

Accroche-toi à ma vie
Oh oui, accroche-toi à mon cœur
Je ne regarderai pas en arrière
Je crois que ce qui m'attend est tout ce dont j'ai besoin
Je vais juste tenir le coup
Je vais respirer

Tenir bon…

I realize I have never walked this road alone
I thought my strength lied in a place where loneliness did not belong
Somehow today I find myself so strong
Standing here on my own
On my own
I kept inside all that I needed to say loud
I spoke too much, when with the silence I would have found my way out
It’s time for me to open up my eyes
Finally come to life

Hold on to my heart
Hold on to my life
All I really wanna say to you
Is whatever’s gone is gone for good
All I can do is hold on

Live every day like this might be the only one
Don’t try to save yourself from pain that’s yet to come, you must go on
If you look up you’ll never see a star touching another one, it stands alone

Hold on to my heart
Hold on to my life
All I really wanna say to you
Is whatever’s gone is gone for good
All I can do is hold on to these fears
Hold on, no more tears
I won’t look behind
I believe what’s ahead of me is all I need
I’ll just hold on

The wind has blown away
The sun is here
Here to stay

Hold on to my life
Oh yeah, hold on to my heart
I won’t look behind
I believe what’s ahead of me is all I need
I’ll just hold on
I’ll breathe

Hold on…

Comment suis-je arrivé ici ?
Pourquoi ai-je besoin de toi ?
Pourquoi dois-je pleurer ces larmes ?
Où mènent-ils ?
J'étais si fort seul
Quand je me tenais seul
Maintenant je ne sais pas quoi faire

Étais-je trop fier ou juste trop aveugle ?
Qu'importe?
Quand l'amour était entre mes mains
je le laisse se briser
Les morceaux dispersés au vent
Je ne les aurai plus jamais ici
Mais je me souviendrai de comment nous étions
Le reste du temps

Tu es mon coeur
Comment pourrais-je jamais te laisser partir ?
Tu es mon âme
J'ai dû perdre mon âme pour savoir
Combien tu mecs
Pour moi, tu es mon coeur

Je pense que je te vois partout
N'est-ce pas fou
Je tends toujours la main pour te sentir là
Allongé à côté de moi
J'ai beaucoup appris depuis que tu es parti
A propos de ce que je suis et de ce que je veux
Je sais que je veux seulement être amoureux de toi

Tu es mon coeur
Comment pourrais-je jamais te laisser partir ?
Tu es mon âme
J'ai dû perdre mon âme pour savoir
Combien tu mecs
Pour moi, tu es mon coeur

Il y a le soleil pour éclairer le jour
Mes couleurs sont devenues grises
Le jour où je t'ai vu partir
Maintenant il n'y a plus rien à dire
Mais quand je rêve, je prie (je prie pour que tu sois là)
Que la vie pourrait être comme hier

Tu es mon coeur
Comment pourrais-je jamais te laisser partir ?
Tu es mon âme
J'ai dû perdre mon âme pour savoir
Combien tu mecs
Pour moi, tu es mon coeur
