Holding On Holding Out chords by Tall Heights

Guitar chords with lyrics

[Intro]

C  G  Am  F
C  G  Am  F

[Verse]

C         G          Am           F   C       G              F
 You were written as holograph in type in the setting of the sun
           C             G             Am     F       C               G
I heard it coming in the waning of the light, that my time was nearly come
C              G          Am           F    C       G               F
 So I and your mother, we set about to write in the language of our love
             C        G          Am        F        C                G
how you were born high above the tree line, beating heart was like a drum


[Chorus]

   C       G      Am      F               C           Em     F
Oh holding on and holding out for a muddy pool in the summer drought
   C       G      E         F                               C           G       F
Oh holding honor, hold your doubt, cuz I don't believe it's too late to save us now
   F
So honey here's to holding out


[Break]

C  G  Am  F
C  G  F


[Verse]

C               G              Am           F   C G            F
Holding out for sunrise in the valley of my mind, darkening my eyes
                       C          G                Am   F  C               G
I'm not creeping up on death, I'm transferring the light, transferring the life
           C             G              Am                F  C         G               F
Well I was building up a fortress to protect you all your life so that you would never want
                                 C        G          Am   F     C                 G
But I can't build them like they used to, that I realized, that fear will come to haunt


[Chorus]

   C       G      Am      F               C           Em     F
Oh holding on and holding out for a muddy pool in the summer drought
   C       G      E         F                               C           G       F
Oh holding honor, hold your doubt, cuz I don't believe it's too late to save us now
   F
So honey here's to holding out


[Verse]

C
     The rains never came
              F            C             G      C
Seems like we all got that same far-off, dusty stare

The rains never came
         F           C            G              Am
Ain't it funny just thinking that somewhere out there
     F        C          G                   C
it's probably pouring on somebody's teatime affair


[Break]

C  G  Am  F
C  G  F[/ch


[Final Chorus]
   C       G      Am      F               C           Em     F
Oh holding on and holding out for a muddy pool in the summer drought
   C       G      E         F                               C           G       F
Oh holding honor, hold your doubt, cuz I don't believe it's too late to save us now
F
Ohhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
   C       G      Am      F       C       G      Am      F
Oh holding on and holding out, oh holding on and holding out
   C       G      E         F                               C           G       F
Oh holding on and holding out, cuz I don't believe it's too late to save us now
            F                C           G       F
