“Hold On, Hold On” by Neko Case

“In the end, I was the mean girl or somebody’s in-between girl.”

The most tender place in my heart is for strangers
I know it’s unkind but my own blood is much too dangerous
Hangin’ round the ceiling half the time
Hangin’ round the ceiling half the time

Compared to some I’ve been around
But I really tried so hard
That echo chorus lied to me with its
“Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on”

In the end, I was the mean girl
Or somebody’s in-between girl
Now it’s the devil I love
And that’s as funny as real love

I leave the party at three a.m.,
alone, thank God,
with a valium from the bride.
It’s the devil I love.
And that’s as funny as real love.
And that’s as real as true love.

That echo chorus lied to me with its
“Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on”

That echo chorus lied to me with its
“Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on”

I'm routinely overestimated.
