Ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

Rachel:
You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side
You know, I'll take your hand

Finn (New Directions):
And when it gets cold,
And it feels like the end,
There's no place to go
You know, I won't give in (Aaah-aaah)
(and Rachel: No, I won't give in) (Aaah-aaah)

Rachel (Finn and Rachel with New Directions):
(Keep holding on)
'Cause you know we'll make it through, (with Finn: we'll make it through)
(Just stay strong)
'Cause, you know, I'm here for you, (with Finn: I'm here for you)

Finn and Rachel (New Directions):
There's nothing you can say (Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (Nothing you can do)
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So, (with New Directions: keep holding on)
'Cause, you know, we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Finn:
So far away
I wish you were here
Before it's too late
This could all disappear

Finn and Rachel (New Directions):
Before the doors close,
And it comes to an end,
With you by my side,
I will fight and defend (Aaah-aaah)
I'll fight and defend (Aaah-aaah)
Yeah! Yeah!

Rachel (Finn and Rachel with New Directions):
(Keep holding on)
'Cause, you know, we'll make it through, (with Finn: we'll make it through)

Finn and Rachel (with New Directions):
There's nothing you can say (New Directions: Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (New Directions: Nothing you can do)
There's no other way (when it comes to the truth)
So, (keep holding on)
'Cause, you know, we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
Nothing's gonna change, nothing's gonna change destiny
Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah)
