Holding On 03:32
Did you wonder why You tossed and turned all night trembling (to this world) Why the earth stood still And the birds don't cry You're not holding on to this world You're not holding on to this world (did you wonder why?) Did you hear the shriek that was Moving in the wind (to this world) Did you feel it then you had no place to go (to this world) Did you need some peace that night In the ground below (to this world) Is it good enough now that There's nothing to hold You're not holding on to this world You're not holding on to this world You're not what you were You're not what you were, you're not You're not holding on You've hurt everyone Did you hear the saints When you killed your man Did you hold on tight to sin Burning in your hand Cause you're not holding on to this You're not holding on You're not holding on to this You're not holding on To this world

Emptiness 03:53
Do you find it can be calming Do you find it can be soothing To be lost in your desires Kill the thoughts for just an hour Fear pounding hard in my head This heart clenching up in my chest It's so hard to ever forget How you looked the moment I left I didn't mean to hold back The warmth I never showed I didn't mean to tell you You're better off alone Pour me another glass Of your finest bottle of shame Drown me in all the cheap thrills This world has to give Do you find it can be calming Do you find it can be soothing To be lost in your desires Kill the thoughts for just an hour Emptiness, Emptiness, Emptiness... Do you find it can be calming Do you find it can be soothing To be lost in your desires Kill the thoughts for just an hour Emptiness, Emptiness, Emptiness... Take me Will you take me away?...

Be Gone 04:38
I feel so sorry Am I all, all to blame? For keeping you around When the pain took you away I feel so sorry Was it all a mistake? For keeping you around When the pain took you away Be, be gone And be, be gone Be, be gone And be, be gone Blood on this bed No more worries in my head God knows how this pain Takes me away Well you see I was wrong Never meant to hurt you at all So let me be with you While this pain takes us away Be gone To this pain that I feel Be gone To this pain that I feel... I feel so sorry Am I all, all to blame? For keeping you around When the pain took you away I feel so sorry Was it all a mistake? For keeping you around When the pain took you away Be gone, to this pain that I feel Be gone, to this pain that I feel (god knows how this pain takes me away) Be gone, to this pain that I feel (takes me away) Be gone, to this pain that I feel (Never meant to hurt you at all) Be gone, to this pain that I feel (god knows how this pain takes me away) Be gone, to this pain that I feel (Never meant to hurt you at all, takes us away)

Sail To Me 04:08
See, Those days have gone by So fast it died Like it wasn't anything But I'd do anything To make it right And I think all the time About that night I was saying You meant something to me You sailed away that day Make your way to me Cause I, I, I, will wait I, I, I will wait So sai-ai-ail to me Sai-ai-ail to me Say just where you'll go I'm always waiting I'm always waiting I will wait for you to find your way So you can sail back to me So you can sail back to me Now, You drift in your days To find your way You've been gone so long But I'd do anything To be your tides To move you along to my lonely side I am waiting For you to come back to me You let the wind guide your way Left me nothing but sad Cause I, I, I, will wait I, I, I will wait So sai-ai-ail to me Sai-ai-ail to me Say just where you'll go I'm always waiting I'm always waiting I will wait for you to find your way So you can sail back to me So you can sail back to me Say just where you will go to see That you must sail back to me So you can sail back to me Let those waves flow the love we had I will wait, cause I will wait

I Can't Be 04:00
How much can I say? When the words rule your head How should I behave? When I hurt you so badly But I don't want And I don't try To be unfair To be unkind But I don't think That I could be Be the one, the one you want I can't be, the one you want And I can't be, the one you want I can't be what you want I can't be what you want How was life before? Things were so easy Now we're much too deep In this game that we started But I don't want And I don't try To be unfair To be unkind But I don't think That I could be, Be the one, the one you want I can't be, the one you want And I can't be, the one you want I can't be what you want I cant be what you want

This Life 03:56
Golden light that touches my eyes And the sun that warms my bones There's a comfort in this soothing air With a hope I've longed to know Cause as days go by, life intensifies And the pain always stays I always thought we were a moving tide Never crashing on the way I don't know what it means What this life has made for me I don't know what life would be Without you, it's not for me I didn't want to believe I didn't want to think That our dreams were all gone I couldn't stand on my feet I couldn't walk in the street I was always falling down I don't know what life would be Without you I feel so weak I don't know what life would be Without you I'd hardly breath I don't know what it means What this life has made for me I don't know what life would be Without you, it's not for me Not for me Not for me If I could feel your warm soul next to me Then I don't care what life brings Only you, is all I need And I don't know what it means What this life has made for me But I don't care what it brings As long as you are there with me

I am waiting around I am waiting around For something I didn't seem to find Somehow I didn't want to see I am waiting around Why, Why, Why... No need to pretend it was something more Playing with my heart for sport This isn't love No need to pretend that it was When it wasn't Why? Did you hold on so long? Playing sides, oh, to pull me in Why pretend? This means the end of our days End of our days Why, Why, Why... Why...Need to – did you need to pretend? I am waiting around I am waiting around For something I only want from you Somehow I am a fool for you I am waiting around Why?...

You're not what you were You're not what you were, you're not You're not holding on You've hurt everyone Did you hear the saints When you killed your man Did you hold on tight to sin Burning in your hand Cause you're not holding on to this You're not holding on You're not holding on to this You're not holding on To this world

about

Sally Dige is a multidisciplinary artist known for her darkly poetic yet highly danceable electro-pop songs, DIY stylistic videos, design and visual art.
Sally‘s deep and commanding voice, coupled with her analogue-visual-processes and overlapping artistic mediums has formed an identity that oscillates between the edges of aggression and fragility, old and new.

Holding On was created during the time of intense inner turmoil. Despite being stretched to her emotional limits, Sally did not let the weight of her circumstances break her, instead channeling all of her pain and fears into the production of a series of incredibly powerful songs.
Stunningly, Sally used only her voice and a single synth to create this album. Even with so little gear, the songs are anything but minimal. Each song has a minimum of 100 tracks and, for some songs, 100 tracks for just the drum section alone. Every audible sound has 20 other sounds swimming beneath it.
These are songs written for dance floors but are sung about loneliness, death and the meaninglessness of existence. Sally‘s work tows the line between a blissful innocence and a heavy darkness. Think Gina X flavored post punk-disco rubbing against Twitch-era Ministry‘s lost Sade collab or Enya on LSD after a break up.

Holding On is Sally‘s second album, following her debut Hard to Please, out on Avant! in Europe and DKA in North America, with two separate cover designs.
