Who Holds Your Hand

Performance, words & music by Patty Larkin

Well I’ve taken to staying up late
I’ve taken up bowling
I take a couple aspirin
And I call my lover in the morning

Well I’ve taken to talking to myself
And I don’t even get it
Gotta get out of my head
It’ll drive me crazy if I let it

Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone
Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone

So I put a cup of tea on
And I looked at Rand McNally
I put a couple shoes on
And I hurried down the alley

Now I’m driving down the highway
Trying to get the lead out
Rolling down the window
And I’m sticking my neck out

Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone
Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

Some people believe in Jesus
And I guess that works real good
Some people believe in God
Like they believe in knocking on wood

Religion is a picture window
Life is not a pretty picture
Rattles when the wind blows
And it never knew what hit her

Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone
Who Holds Your Hand
When you’re alone
