​For Dear Life

This song is by Cock Robin and appears on the compilation album Collection Gold (1990).

As I have only my convictions I've made some mistakes
Trial and error is not an answer or even a break
So I cling to the only treasure I've pleasured to know
I can't believe
That these precious things are ever worth letting go

In my time, I've been blessed
With a powerful love very few ever get
It's a pain and a plea
To possess this desire which comes over me
So I fight while holding on for dear life
I'm holding on for dear life

Empty daybreaks have been replacing my generous nights
I lose sight of things we've created and have put them aside
To go forward with just one motion is all I can do
I doubt very much though I could forget if I wanted to

In my time, I've been blessed
With a powerful love very few ever get
It's a pain and a plea
To possess this desire which comes over me
So I cry while holding on for dear life
I'm holding on for dear

So I cling to the only treasure I've pleasured to know
I can't believe
That these precious things are ever worth letting go

In my time, I've been blessed
With a powerful love very few ever get
It's a pain and a plea
To possess this desire which comes over

In my time, I've been blessed
With a powerful love very few ever get
It's a pain and a plea
To possess this desire which comes over me
So I try while holding on for dear life
Yes, I'm holding on for dear life

So I'm holding on
I'm holding on
Dear life baby
Holding on
For dear life
Holding on
For dear life
Holding on baby
