about

This is a song about how a lover you lost or let go still has a hold on your soul no matter how much time has passed.

lyrics

"Still Got A Hold On You"

See the sun go down
Unfamiliar city
As the leaves turn brown
Summer smiles in pity

But you're always gonna play that part
And you're never gonna miss your cue
Melodrama, or Performance Art?
Woah oh woah oh

No matter what you try to do
She's still got a hold on you
Looking over your shoulder
Backseat driver
Nagging voice inside you, woah oh
After everything she put you through
She's still got a hold on you
Even when you're holding someone else
She's still got a hold on you
She's still got a hold on you

When it gets too much
You're never the leaving kind
You're living for the touch
Willing to be blind

How could everything just fall apart
When everything was still brand new
Like a toaster from a discount mart
Woah oh woah oh

No matter what you try to do
She's still got a hold on you
Looking over your shoulder
Backseat driver
Nagging voice inside you, woah oh
After everything she put you through
She's still got a hold on you
Even when you're holding someone else
She's still got a hold on you
She's still got a hold on you

Even when you're holding someone else
She's still got a hold on you
