About "Hold On"
HOLD ON, KEEP THE FAITH (E.P. Djob / arr: B. Foko & E.P. Djob)

WHEREVER YOU ARE, I'LL BE WITH YOU IN SPIRIT
WHOEVER YOU ARE, YOU NEED LOVE, LOVE AND CARE
I FEEL THIS WAY SOMETIMES
WHATEVER YOU BEAR KEEP ON HOLDING ON,
KEEP THE FAITH
IF YOU WANDER IN THE NIGHT,
SEARCHING FOR A HEALING LIGHT, IF YOU DON'T FEEL ALRIGHT
KEEP THE FAITH, HOLD ON !

WHEN THE WINDS ARE BLOWING, HOLD ON
TROUBLES EVERYWHERE, KEEP ON HOLDING ON
WHEN THE TEARS ARE FLOWING, HOLD ON
NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
SISTER KEEP ON MOVING,
BROTHER MAKE UP YOUR MIND
WE HAVE A BRAND NEW MORNING
TO MAKE RISE
A BRAND NEW DAY TO DEVISE

I TELL YOU SISTER IF YOU'VE BEEN TOO OFTEN GIVEN RIGHT FOR WRONG,
I SHARE
YOU'VE BEEN LIVING IN PAIN IN VAIN IN A KILLING STRAIN, WITHOUT COMPLAIN, TOO LONG
I SHARE
I TELL YOU BROTHER IF YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY THE SHADOWS OF FEAR,
I SHARE
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I'M STANDING NEAR,

I SHARE : ALL THOSE NIGHTS, CRYING FOR THE BELOVED WHO'S GONE,
I SHARE : LIVING IN A PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL SO SCORNED,
I SHARE : HOMELESS, OUT OF WORK, BATTERED WOMAN, STARVING CHILD...
I SHARE, I SHARE, KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU’RE NOT ALONE!

YOU MAY BE FAR FROM ME, TOTALLY DESPIRITED, I'LL BE WITH YOU IN SPIRIT
YOU MAY BE YOUNG OR OLD WHITE OR BLACK, RICH OR POOR:
YOU NEED LOVE AND CARE, YOUR DEEPEST NEED
YOU MAY BE TIRED, READY TO FALL, YOU MAY BE FIRED, UNABLE TO CALL
HOLD ON, KEEP THE FAITH, KEEP ON HOLDING ON!
WHEREVER YOU ARE, MAYBE WALKING IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOWS OF DEATH, 
WHOEVER YOU ARE MAYBE LIVIN' IN A TOP WHERE YOU'RE OUT OF BREATH,
WHATEVER YOU BEAR… WHEREVER YOU ARE, WHOEVER YOU ARE WHATEVER YOU BEAR
HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON.
