about

"Hold" is the first single from Carmel Mikol's new album Daughter of a Working Man (available May 1st). "Hold" is a rally cry, a street march, a protest song that is bold but understated, stubborn but kind.

lyrics

HOLD
by Carmel Mikol
www.carmelmikol.com

Out of the middle of the anarchy
Out of the city like a refugee
Everybody’s telling me to give up give up give up

Out of my head finally
As close to the heart as I’ll ever be
Even when they’re telling me to give up give up give up

WE GOTTA HOLD
WE GOTTA HOLD
ALL THE TIES THAT BIND US
ALL TOGETHER NOW

Falling down around our feet
The blood and sweat of the century
Everybody’s telling us to give up give up give up

Throw their money into the streets
Give me something I can keep
Even when they’re telling us to give up give up give up

WE GOTTA HOLD
WE GOTTA HOLD
ALL THE TIES THAT BIND US
ALL TOGETHER NOW
