Liner Notes: 

My husband gave me a hug tonight--one like I often get when I return home from being gone. It felt so good and I felt so secure in his arms, it reminded me of a time when my body was working against me and his (and only his) embrace was the only thing that gave my body a feeling or normalcy, of calm, of steadiness. Even now when I feel so much more "normal", his embrace can make me aware of tension I have been holding that I was unaware of before. It's a temporary haven.

Lyrics: 

A Little Longer Than Held
Lyrics by Kc Chad © 2019 Sept.

I didn’t know the tension I was holding til you touched me
Do you have brains in those amazing hands?
They seem to know just where I need to loosen up
The ground seems more steady when I’m held up in your arms

No other solid strength like yours, my body melts into your warmth
Trembles halt in your embrace, the spinning stops between my ears
My limbs feel a little less, a little less, a little less weak
The ground no longer tilts while you’re holding me

Don’t let go, not just yet.
Don’t let go, Don’t let go
Hold me just a little longer
A little longer…. than held

Your chest against mine, well...it infuses a sense of calm
Can we remain this way forever?
The beat of your heart brings me, brings me back from gone
To stay enfolded in you arms. This sweet, temporary haven

Your legs are like tall ivory pillars I can lean against
Your breath lingers like morning fog on my head. An Inward wind
forms a rhythm to the chugging of your chest, makes the moment make sense
Takes a train wreck and sets it back on track

Don’t let go, not just yet.
Don’t let go, Don’t let go
Hold me just a little longer
A little longer…..than held

Quiet calm
Steady ground
Spinning stops
Trembles halt
Strength and warmth
What I need
What I want

Don’t let go, not just yet.
Don’t let go, Don’t let go
Hold me just a little longer
A little longer…..
Hold me a little longer
Don’t let go, not just yet.
Don’t let go, No, don’t let go
Hold me just a little longer
A little longer
A little longer…..
A little longer…. than held

So beautiful and so meaningful. Lovely sentiment and really well delivered message that is even comforting to read. Thanks too for the lovely liner notes. We all need those people and those hugs in our life.
