Although we barely ready,
Journey carries through the night,
And it feels like nowhere,
And there is no borderline.
Away from the snow,
Runaway horses.
In place of the dawn
Some real shape is breaking.
Jets to the western,
Tracks to the eastern,
Over the wasteland,
Hold on, hold on,
At the first turn of the the second block.
Hold on.
I would never throw
(Go away from the snow)
(Away from the snow that is on the ground.)
Love out the window
Well, that's how it is , yeah, yeah .
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'll tell you the story
Of loves we seen twice.
I've been looking out for you, yeah, yeah .
(Won't ya)
Hold on, hold on.
At the first turn of the second block.
Hold on, woo-hoo, woo-hoo.
At the first turn of the second block.
And one live as two,
And two live as three.
It's a black and a blue
Kind of a thing, love.
I seen you right there
The rain in your hair
I seen you right there.
I was calling, calling
Over this place,
Can't you see me falling?
Hold on, hold on.
At the first turn of the second block.
Hold on , woo-hoo, woo-hoo .
At the last turn, at the very last turn,
Won't you hold on?
