Dedication

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Cut the Wire (1986).

For those who've died - behind walls
For those who've cried - unanswered calls
For those who only follow - where giants walked
For those whose tongues are tied and cannot talk.

For there's none so blind - as those who will not see
Nor so unkind as those unfree
This is my dedication - another song
All I'll have to give I do, when something's wrong

When you can't do right
Then you've gotta do wrong
You can't be weak
So you gotta be strong
If you look for friendship
And find that you're alone
You'll keep holding on, holding on
You'll keep holding on, holding on
You've been holding on, holding on so long.

If you see me through the window
Or spy me through the door
What would you want my smile to tell you
D'you think I've found a cure
Ain't no potions - ain't no clues
I dedicate this one - to you and you and you.

You can't see the wood - you can't see the tree
You make a god of hatred - for your miseries
This is my dedication - another song
All I have to give I do, when something's wrong.

When you can't do right
Then you've gotta do wrong
You can't be weak
If you're alone
If God know he don't tell you
Why the wicked are so strong
But you've been holding on, holding on
You've been holding on, holding on - so long.
So long.
