Hold on Loosely Lyrics
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...

This song is directed toward those who are in a relationship with someone. "Hold on loosely, but don't let go" is saying to care for your spouce/child, but don't overly control them. "If you cling too tightly, you're gonna loose control" means tha if you overly control them, they will no longer listen to you. "Your baby needs someone to believe in, and a whole lot of space to breathe in" means that they need you but they need to do some things on their own. Overall it is a warning to tell people to love and care but not over-protect.

He was so in love with her but afraid to show it. He now knows she is the one.

Wow whoever thinks this song is about getting a hand job is obviously stupid. It's about the correct way to be in a relationship. "hold on loosely, but don't let go" means don't be over controlling but then again don't let it go. Not about getting jerked of you idiot.

obviously about masturbation....
"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" which means a girl taught him to "hold on loosely" without letting go...if you cling to tight you'll ejaculate
