Keep Holding On Lyrics

You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side
You know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold
And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
no I won't give in

Keep holdin' on
'Cause you know we'll...

    Keep holding on

    Me and my older sister labeled this song as our anthem because even if we are apart, we are together through pictures, memories and love. And I think this song means that if your going through hell keep going, because the others that went through the same thing as you are waiting at the end to congratulate you. And that they'll both stay strong for the one that breaks down no matter what. And that one is telling the other that " it's okay to ask for help. You don't need to be strong forever, just until the end if the line. Just open your eyes, I'm right here beside you. If you let me see your demons, I can try and help you conquer them. Just let me in, because we are in this together whither you like it or not. And if you want to be independent, I'll let you, but I'll be right here waiting. Just don't give up". That's how I understood the song, sorry for the length

    As a small note: This song is NOT talking about romantic love between a boy and girl. This song is actually talking about friendship. This song says that no matter what happens will make it through together and I'll be here to help you. And of course, don't give up (Keep holding on).

    I think this song is for those who are going through a lot and are thinking of taking their lives. To keep positive and that pain is only temporary and that it'll get better if they keep holding on. If you are thinking about suicide and need someone please don't hesitate to send me a message on Instagram @heldcaptiveinakiss or please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-8255. There's always hope ❤️

    I honestly think this song has a lot of direction, but for me it’s about getting over the death of a loved one. Just lost my dad in October. But ill keep holding on.

    I want to hold something into my own life and keep my faith and sometimes I understand that feeling but I’m writing this song that friends can keep holding on and they’ll always have you back and we’re glad that we are writing that song and we’re doing some productions and the director is filming a location near Nashville, it’s been amazing experiences with Nashville and also we’ve been through this time and friends can comfort them

    I think this song is about having hope when you're in a tough situation.In a way the song is the "hope".

    I think it's for the fans who are going through a tough time, saying that she's with them, she'll fight and defend and that she cares even though she can't see them



    Idk it came off as something like that to me

    I think this song is talking about a friend who moved away or something, "So far away," and she is trying to tell them to keep holding on to the friendship they have. Also, it's talking about tough times :)

    This song is about friendship, and how true friends would always stay by the other friend's side and never ditch them. The friends keep holding on, no matter how hard life gets for them. This is, by far, my favorite song by Avril Lavigne!

    if you're feeling like giving into to death. this song could be translating to fighting for your life. and the ones you love being there for you. they say 'just stay strong, because we'll make it through' together.
