Charlie Louvin — Holding On To Nothin' lyrics

We're holding on with nothing left to hold on to

I'm so tired of holding on to nothin'
The years have shown no kindness for the hard times we've been through
We've squeezed the life from every dream and still go right on bluffin'
With really nothin' left to hold on to
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/charlie-louvin-holding-on-to-nothin-lyrics.html ]
Oh why do we keep holding on with nothin' left to hold on to
Let's be honest with each other that's at least that we can do
I feel guilty when they envy me and you
We're holding on with nothin' left to hold on to
[ piano ]
We were young and foolishly mistaken
The victims of a passion much too strong to be denied
With only tears to show for all the years that we've been faking
God only knows how hard how long we've tried

Why do we keep holding on...
We're holding on with nothin' left to hold on to
