lyrics

RYAN: My mama told me
When I was just a little boy
She said

SARAH: Son if you wanna be heard now
You better get up and make some noise

RYAN: So I threw my arms up
And I screamed my lungs out
But nobody seemed to care
That’s when I found out
It’s a crazy world out there
Yeah, I’m gonna lose my mind
And that’s when mama she said

CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Cause I can’t get no release

SARAH: My daddy told me
When I was just a Lil' Shrimp
He’d say

RYAN: You got to be a strong independent woman
Don’t take no bullshit from nobody else

SARAH: I’d say papa don’t you preach and try to understand
If this world is my oyster
I gotta dig for all I can
But each time I try so hard
All I’m picking up is sand
That slips straight through my shrimpy hands
That’s when he’d say

CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Cause I can’t get no release

Breakdown (instrumental)

EXTENDED CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Up from the west down to the east
There must be something I can hold onto
Wish I could find a little peace
There must be something I can hold onto
‘Cause I can’t get no release
