Song of the Week

Okay. Everyone out there raise your hands if you have been sitting in front of your computer all night awaiting this blog. Hang on. Let me get a quick count. Okay, thanks. It has been added to the record.

Tonight I am going to cheat. I have had a song in my head for the past week, so fittingly it is this week’s “Song of the Week.” I encourage everyone to buy this album and listen to it in its entirety. These guys opened for Mr. Ben Folds in New Haven and were actually better then expected. I especially enjoy the refrain and the clapping. Audience participation is always fun.

Song: Hold It In
Album: Let Live and Let Ghosts
Artist: Jukebox the Ghost

Jump into that water and see for yourself
Take a deep breath and hold it in, hold it in

She’s got a secret and she wants to tell
But I made a promise to hold it in, hold it in

Baby I’m in love and maybe it’s not to tell
Only thing that I can do is hold it in, hold it in

I was told that I’m a man now and I’m not allowed to cry
The only thing that I can do is hold it in, hold it in
Hah!

(Refrain)
Life is “Oh my God, if I tell him, he’ll tell her, and then she will know I like her!”
Good grief! I don’t think that I can take this heartbreak any longer
I will not hold it in
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!

Well the couple with the baby and it’s no secret why
Neither one was able to hold it in, hold it in

Kids in the streets yeah they’re all getting high
Everybody’s screaming “hold it in, hold it in!”
Ha-hey!

(Refrain)

If there’s God, He’s embarrassed and it’s no secret why
The only thing that He can do is hold it in, hold it in

So I printed him a letter to be sent out to sea
Looking for a bottle to hold it in, hold it in
Ha!

(Refrain)
Lyrics
