My Reply

This song is by The Ataris and appears on the album So Long, Astoria (2003).

I got your letter and the poetry you sent me
postmarked in December of last year
I really hope you're doing better
All your friends close by your side
One step closer to recovery

I wish there was something I could say
To erase each and every page you've been through
even though it's not my place to save you

I appreciate but can't accept this thank you note
that's sealed with your last breath
and I won't stand aside and listen to you give up

If you'll just hold on for one more second
If you just hold on to what you have
Just hold on/just hold on
You will wake up tomorrow

If you'll just hold on for one more second
If you just hold on to what you have
Just hold on/just hold on
You will wake up tomorrow

These arms remain stretched out to you
Maybe someday you'll accept them
Maybe it's too late to save
a young girl's heart that's long stopped beating

Wake up wake up you've gotta believe
Wake up wake up you can't give up
Time keeps going on without us
long after we're dead and gone

I wish there was something I could say
to erase each and every page you've been through
Even though it's not my place to save you

I appreciate but can't accept this thank you note
that's sealed with your last breath
and I won't stand aside and listen to you give up

If you'll just hold on for one more second
Just hold on to what you have
If you just hold on/just hold on
If you'll just hold on for one more second
Just hold on to what you have
If you just hold on/just hold on
