song title:Hold On (to what you've got)
date: 1991-07-15
song notes:perhaps the first song i really cared about
lyrics: 

verse 1:
When the moon is as bright as the daytime
And the stars shine in the sky.
When the tropical breeze starts a-blowin',
and there's raindrops falling from my eyes.

chours:
Babe I can't be with you always,
but I dream of you when I'm not.
When all you have left are your daydreams babe,
you've got to hold on to what you've got.

verse 2:
When the music starts a-playin',
and your voice, your voice it rings in my ears
I can see your face oh so clearly, now,
that you may just be right here.

chorus:
Babe I can't be with you always,
but I dream of you when I'm not.
When all you have left are your daydreams babe,
you've got to hold on to what you've got.
You've got to hold on to what you've got.
You've got to hold on to what you've got.
