about

Sometimes a song writes itself. Given the rich chord changes, it would seem that this one was difficult to construct, but, in fact, melodically and musically speaking, it flowed out of me with very little resistance and in a matter of hours, and very much to my surprise. Lyrically, however, it would prove more troublesome. The message was simple: "Don't give up. I'm here for you." Writing that in an eloquently spare way so that it didn't seem redundant or melodramatic was tricky.

lyrics

When the darkness is bearing down
And it's under your ground
Never give way
Hold on
Hold on

When the promise of rescue wanes
And no hope remains
You I will save
Hold on
Hold on
I'm telling you brother!
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

When the valor of strangers dies
No, don't close your eyes!
You I will save
Hold on
Hold on
I'm telling you brother!
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

about

"'Lost In Love' and 'Tanglings' are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime)."
--Mike Breen, Citybeat Magazine 2011
