JOHN CANNON: Music

Hold On

(JOHN CANNON)
John Cannon

It was the late 70's living in Malibu Colony and when the tide came in it would tear at the bulkheads and threaten to take out the houses.  They called in the National Guard to help us sandbag.  But when the tide was out and the sun was shinning, it was a beautiful day for a disaster.

HOLD ON

Words and Music by John Cannon

 

Look out across the sea

Dream the space where you can be

With shimmering sunlight on the water

Whitecaps dance in the wind

And the sea gull glides in the blue

 

Sails float on the horizon

Waves beating on the shore

With shimmering sunlight on the water

Whitecaps dance in the wind

And the seagull glides in the blue

 

(Hold on, hold on

Hold on) baby hold on

Feel the sea as it surges, (hold on)

Let its energy fill you, (hold on)

(Hold on) while the tide is changing

(Hold on) baby hold on

 

Warm sun upon your face

Be the magic of this place

With shimmering sunlight on the water

Whitecaps dance in the wind

And the seagull glides in the blue
