Verse 1:
D                   A  G
Time and time I wonder why?
D                     A   G
Nothin' seems to work out right
D             A     G             D
All I can fathom is it's not supposed to
     D              A    G
It's hard enough being alone
     D          A   G
With nowhere else to go
   D        A        G             D
To get away from the thought of you

Prechorus:
Bm                  A
I don't know how to sleep at night
  G                        A
I don't know how the river got so wide
Bm  A               G             A
Oh oh oh can't you see...

Chorus:
               D   A   Em   G
You gotta hold on...
    A          D   A   Em   G
You gotta hold on...
         A
Yeah you gotta hold on

Verse 2:
How can I even try
Without you by my side
Nothin' seems to matter anymore
Lives are wasting away
Waiting for a brighter day
Things can't get any worse and that's for sure

Prechorus:
I don't know how to sleep at night
I don't know how the river got so wide
Oh oh oh can't you see

Chorus:
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
(You gotta hold on)
Yeah you gotta hold on

Bridge:
C    G              D
Oh oh the road is long
C             G               D
Most of the time you'll be wrong
C               G                D
But all your troubles will be gone
            C  G         A
If you just hold hold on
