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...

    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 you mean keep holding on. It's kinda saying, she'll comfort the 'you'. "cause you know I'm here for you" that they will get through whatever comes at them in life"Cause you know we'll make it through". That together they are stronger than apart m"with you by my side I will fight and defend". To keep holding on to that hope that it will all turn out for the best. "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 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

    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

    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.

    i think this song is about HIV, when her partner is infected, she's telling her partner that she'll fight along with him/her no matter what happen, they both should keep holding on. there's nothing they can do/say about the truth (HIV).

    she's hoping that someday the cure would be available (it could all go away) before it's too late (before the door closed).

    I think the song means that, her friend is in tough situation and needs someone. And she says that "we'll make it through", as in what ever her friend is going through they will make it through together.

    I believe that this song is about never letting go of someone you love, persevering, and i always think of my mom when she was going through chemo when i hear this song.

    I was told it is about her living with breast cancer and pushing through, because you can't change what's happening but to just hold on to life.
