I’ve never been frightened of aging
‘Cause aging never meant growing old
But now that daylight is rapidly fading
And the night seems dark and cold

Though the mind is a thing of wonder
It’s the body that keeps it at bay
Now as my body gets weaker and weaker
I feel my mind slowly going astray

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

Young hearts are accustomed to breaking
They mend with water and time
Now the hours in my glass, they are tumbling
The well is dry and the sand is too fine

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

These hands, they were made for building
They built the dam and the well
That kept us alive and helped us to thrive
‘Till the sound of the tolling bell

Now the mortar is cracked and failing
The stones, they are weakened and frayed
Soon the trickle will turn to flowing
And the river will dance me away

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

From this bed I hear all of you crying
And though it hurts, I don’t want you to stay
Because the truth is I’m frightened of dying
And I don’t want to be lifted away

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore
