If We Hold On Together - Diana Ross

My last post was about my best friend. This current song is about my high school friends because they were the ones who welcomed me into high school life and they accompanied me there. Unfortunately, they did not stay long.

I am talking about my big brother (we fondly call him "Bacon") who was in his Senior year when I was a freshman in high school. The three of us, me and my big sister and brother went to the same school although I must admit, I was closer with my brother back then. I had a classmate, maybe I could name her Chu, who became my friend and while I was close to my brother, she also developed this closeness to him. All these happened when we, Chu and I, were in still in the first year level.

The three of us go to church together, and if we had free time, we eat out and talk a lot. We fell in love with this song because we thought about being good friends for life.I learned later on that this song was used in the animated movie: The Land Before Time. I loved the song even more.

But things changed my brother graduated and had to go to college in the city. I began having my own set of friends, she did likewise.

Almost 20 years since then, I still remember our song and when I hear it (which I seldom do this age), I remember Chu.

This is the lyrics and the song:

If We Hold on Together - Diana Ross

If We Hold On TogetherDon’t lose your way
With each passing day
You’ve come so far
Don’t throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope & glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and i

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Somebody is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and i

When we are out there in the dark
We’ll dream about the sun
In the dark we’ll feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and i
