The main piano riff came from a song I wrote called "Still it rains" but after witnessing the Tsunami tragedy on TV on boxing day 2004 the song became "Hold On".

That Tsunami left 230,000 people dead or missing and another 2 million homeless. Our attention has since moved away but the effects of such a catastrophe are very much a reality for many people, especially children, in that area.

LYRICS

Despite ourselves we cannot win
No magic cream for fragile skin
When the world decides you’ve had your time
Prepare yourself to get in line

Hold on to what you’ve got
‘cos it can all go tomorrow
Hold on to everyone you need
Hold on
Things can change

In spite of this we don’t give in
From sudden ends the new begins
When the world decides
To play its hand
Prepare yourself
Forget your plans

Hold on to what you’ve got
‘cos it can all go tomorrow
Hold on to everyone you need
Hold on
Things can change
