FOURTH SON SOUTH RELEASE HOLD ON

South African Overdrive Rockers FOURTH SON SOUTH are back with their new single HOLD ON

Founder, Vocalists and Lead Guitarist PETER TOUSSAINT (also from Barbosa Experience, Fake Leather Blues Band & Hoot 'n Anny) shares that “doing your thing is not always easy. If you don’t conform you’ll face disappointment. But do what you do, stick to your principles and there’s a place for you!"

Peter adds that "as usual, I started writing the music for this song before I came up with lyrics. But, as soon as I started with words, I knew this one should be hopeful and supportive. The idea behind it is that you should do what you do without compromise. And it’s not easy if you want to be successful. Use your heart, enjoy success of others but don’t let it change your path. There is no future in 'if only' and 'I should have'! Musically the riff of the verse came to me in seconds and I worked from there. And I always wanted to have a nice twin solo in songs (I somehow don’t think this will be the last)."

LYRICS

Hold on There’s light outside the window Painting all it touches red Burning in the coldest feelings Colour in tomorrows that you could have had Could have had In the sand that is streaming Are decisions that you made It doesn’t change the dreaming Of a time where your intentions will be paid Will be paid Hold on to your dream Hold on to your dream Go against the stream Hold on Hold on don’t let go Hold on it will show You will never know Hold on

On a cold and clear blue morning You opened both your hands Gave away your surplus Now you are free to receive without demands Without demands Hold on to your dream Hold on to your dream Go against the stream Hold on Hold on don’t let go Hold on it will show You will never know Hold on Free from greed and expectations Ready now enjoy the ride Hold on to your dream Hold on to your dream Go against the stream Hold on Hold on don’t let go Hold on it will show You will never know Hold on
