Hold Me Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Can you understand me
Baby, don't you hand me a line
Although it doesn't matter
You and me got plenty of time
There's nobody in the future
So baby let me hand you, my love
There's no step for you to dance to
So slip your hand inside of my glove

[Chorus]
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

[Verse 2]
I don't want no damage
But how'm I going to manage with you
You hold the percentage
But I'm the fool payin' the dues
I'm just around the corner
If you got a minute to spare
I'll be waitin' for you
If you ever want to be there

[Chorus]
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

About “Hold Me

Hold Me” was the first single from Mirage. It shot up to #4 in the US and held the spot for seven consecutive weeks. Eventually it was ranked the #31 song of 1982 there.

The track was not as successful overseas where it found varied levels of moderate success. In the UK, “Hold Me” did not chart at all in 1982. However, when Fleetwood Mac’s Greatest Hits came out in late 1988, the song was reissued as a single to promote the album and it finally entered the UK singles chart, but only for one week peaking at #94.

Christine McVie wrote “Hold Mewith Robbie Patton, a British singer-songwriter that Fleetwood Mac had recently worked with and brought on tour. It was inspired by McVie’s recently-ended relationship with Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson – two years before he drowned while drunk.

Hold Me” is one of the few times McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham sing together on Mirage. The band’s relationship was so strained at the time, the producer of the song’s music video called the shoot “a fucking nightmare” and its director added “Four of them—I can’t recall which four—couldn’t be together in the same room for very long … John McVie was drunk and tried to punch me. Stevie Nicks didn’t want to walk on the sand with her platforms. Christine McVie was fed up with all of them. Mick thought she was being a bitch, he wouldn’t talk to her.”
