Holding Onto Air


words and music by Rick Paul

Holding Onto Air cover art
From the single Holding Onto Air


Magic moments float across my memory
Gentle breezes whisper in my ear
I’m wide awake and dreaming
And wishing you were here

Tear-filled conversations, life and laughter
Silly songs we sang to pass the time
Private moments filled with stories
That still echo through my mind

I can close my eyes to see you
Anytime and anywhere
But when I wrap my arms around you
I’m just holding onto air

Ghostly winds blew in across the desert
You turned away when I looked in your eyes
And I couldn’t heal the hurting
You kept hidden deep inside

I can close my eyes to see you
Anytime and anywhere
But when I wrap my arms around you
I’m just holding onto air

Holding, holding
Holding onto air

I’m wide awake and dreaming
And wishing you were here

I can close my eyes to see you
Anytime and anywhere
But when I wrap my arms around you
I’m just holding onto air

I keep holding onto air
Yes, I’m holding onto air
