"Hand to Hold" is a demo by The Relationship.

Overview

"Hand to Hold" is a reworked version of the song "Private Message", a Weezer demo originally written by Rivers Cuomo in consideration for the band's eventual fifth album. A few years later, Brian Bell asked to rework the song for possible inclusion on a release by The Relationship. Bell stated in a fan interview in 2006 that he didn't believe the song would make an album, but rather would be a "perfect b-side." The song has never seen an official release.

Lyrics

I want you so badly
Too bad that you slammed me
And when you are reading the words I write
You think that I'm just some dumb, horny guy.

I've been thinking about true romance
How could love even stand a chance?
The game is rigged, it's way too old
I just want to have a hand to hold

I want to get near you
Too bad that I fear you
'Cuz you're all surrounded by your girlfriends
Do I have to be in some famous band?

I've been thinking about true romance
How could love even stand a chance?
The game is rigged, it's way too old
I just want to have a hand to hold

Hold my hand
Tell me that you love me for who I am
Tell me that you love me, baby
Hold my hand

It may be old-fashioned
Not looking for action
And if I ain't kissin' you right away
You think that I might be a little gay

I've been thinking about true romance
How could love even stand a chance?
The game is rigged, it's way too old
I just want to have a hand to hold
A hand to hold
