Original Key: G


Verse 1:
                  C6
I know there are millions just like me,
                G2/D           G2/B
I know how it looks on your T.V.
              C6                           G
If you only knew the way my sister's eyes can smile.
                 C6
I wish you could walk with me today
                   G2/D             G2/B
And hold my hand, talking all the way.
                  C6                                G2
I'd show you my life, my hope, my chances slipping by.
Chorus:
  G            D/F♯
So, hold on, don't lose me
                Em7
Though I'm just one face
               C2#11    C2
In a cast of thousands.
G           D/F♯
  Hold on, can't you see
        Em7
Hope is dying all around us,
             C2#11
The water is rising and I'm drowning.
G
  You gotta hold on,
D(no3rd)                G
  You gotta hold on to me.
Verse 2:
Will you remember me this way
Or will my picture slowly fade
As sure as the stars around are falling one by one?
'Cause I'm getting closer to the edge
Of yesterday's broken promises
And 'happily ever after' never, never comes.
Mid section:
G                  D/F♯
  You gotta hold on,   please.
Em7                C2#11
  You gotta hold on.
G                  D/F♯
  You gotta hold on,   please.
Em7                C2#11
  You gotta hold on.

I KNOW THERE ARE MILLIONS JUST LIKE ME
I know how it looks on your TV
If you only knew the way my sister's eyes can smile

I wish you could walk with me today
And hold my hand talking all the way
I'd show you my life my hope
My chances slipping by

So hold on don't lose me
Though I'm just one face in a cast of thousands
Hold on can't You see
Hope is dying all around us the water is rising and I'm here drowning
You gotta hold on You gotta hold on to me

Will you remember me this way
Or will my picture slowly fade
As sure as the stars around are falling one by one

'Cause I'm getting closer to the edge
Of yesterday's broken promises
And happily ever after never never comes

You gotta hold on, please
You gotta hold on to me
