Holding It In – lyrics

Written by: D. KAMM

It’s gonna be hard It’s gonna be long
But it’s gonna be fine and they’ll still get in line to come here
It’s gonna look bad It’s gonna look like a page out of history
And the battles we’ve won come so quickly undone when you can not help a friend in need

But if you call me right here right now and if times are bad and you’re in doubt I’ll come running running to you
And if you call me right now and say that you need me by you right away I’ll come running running to you

Nothing like pride Nothing like a cold stare at the enemy
And I am not alone in this love for my home that raised me
High in the clouds and deep in the mountains and the shinning seas
It’s a patience that grows from our skin to our bones that paves the way for dignity

And if we stand up right here today we can be the steel we can be a brace holding freedom holding it in
And my memories are always safe and I’m honor-bound and I burn with faith and conviction
That we’ll always be free No alternative We’ll always be free

And if you call me right here right now because all is lost and must be found
I’ll come looking and I will find it with you

And this anthem we sing loud and brave will be heard by all while we lead the way

‘cuz we will always be free
