lyrics

The hero in the forest, and the water in the oil --
The bullet in the barrel and the blood in the soil --
The magic in the mercy, and the drunk in the choir
Saving all the rubble from the fortress in the fire --
If… I… could

Baby’s broken open and she’s seeing for the first time –
Her veil’s falling open and she’s bathing in the bright light --
Blinded by her shadow, and it’s getting hard to see her --
I’d tell her that I love her, and I’d tell her I believe her --
If… I… could

The third shift’s shattered, and they’re looking for a payback --
Marching in the streets prophesizing what they’ll take back --
New found rage in a lost generation --
There’s color in the cracks of a broken-hearted nation --
If I could…

Moon-dripped drama on a midnight rough-ride --
He came out swinging like hero in a gun fight --
He falls out of focus, but he’s always a believer --
I’d wet a thousand towels just to try and break his fever --
If… I… could

Chorus
If I hold on…
If I hold on…
If I hold on…
If I hold on…

Trick Shooter Social Club Chicago, Illinois

The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
