Hold On World

by Ken Sharp



In light of the COVID-19 crisis, in a spirit of unity and as a message of hope, I wrote and recorded a new song, "Hold On World," which I've just released as a single.

Proceeds from the sales of the single will be channeled to the United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund, which provides relief to those left vulnerable by the pandemic.

As the lyrics state, "united we stand, divided we fall." Now's the time to heal this divide and join together in a sense of unity as we face this worldwide pandemic.


Hold On World

hey there brother, you’re so far away
hey there sister, the news gets worse every day
we’re running out of answers and we’re running out of time
so send out this message across the telegraph lines
united we stand, divided we fall

so hold on world, hold on, oh yeah (hold on world)
one last chance for humanity, one voice singing our song
so hold on world, hold on

prey on the living and prey on the weak
came down like thunder and knocked us off our feet
i believe in our spirit, i believe we are strong
so join together and sing along, sing along
united we stand, divided we crawl

too much sorrow, too much pain
going down, going down, going down, going down

united we stand, divided we fall
united we stand, divided we crawl
