This is a song with words of encouragement to a friend who is going through some tough times.

Holding On (and Piper) is in this C tuning: EGCGCE. Here is a live version of Holding On on YouTube.

I have always found it frustrating when I have a friend going through hard times, and all I can do it tell them that I will be there for them and that it will get better eventually. This song does a good job at getting that message across.
