Video of the day: Alabama Shakes – Hold On

What a brilliant song!

Taken from their recently released debut album “Boys & Girls”, a fantastic album! Maybe the best album so far this year.

Lyrics:

Bless my heart.
Bless my soul.
Didn’t think I’d make it to 22yrs old.
There must be someone up above sayin’ “Come on Brittany,

you got to come on up.”
“You got to Hold on…”

So, bless my heart and bless yours too.
I don;’t know where I’m gonna go don’t what what I’m

gonna do.
Must be somebody up above sayin’ “Come on Brittany, You

got to come on up!”
“You got to hold on…”

YEAH! YOU GOT TO WAIT!
YEAH! YOU GOT TO WAIT!
BUT, I DON’T WANNA WAIT!
I DON’T WANNA WAIT…

So, bless my heart.
Bless my mind.
I got so much to do, I ain’t got much time
So, must be someone up above saying “Come on girl! You

got to get back up!!”
“You got to hold on…”

“YEAH! YOU GOT TO WAIT!”
I DON’T WANNA WAIT!
WELL, I DON’T WANNA WAIT!
NO, I DON’T WANNA WAIT!
