The meaning of Hold My Hand by Lady Gaga

In the lyrics, Lady Gaga is talking to the man she loves in a moment of difficulty. Her man is in crisis, he is crying and cannot open up and confide in her. Gaga feels it in her own sadness, but she asks him to allow her to be close to him in this moment of sadness, guaranteeing that it will go away. Hold My Hand, is the exhortation she has for him: cry as much as you need, don’t be afraid, but keep holding my hand, because I want to stay close to you. The meaning of the lyrics is therefore the singer’s point of view in a moment of crisis experienced by her partner.

The complete lyrics

Tell me you need me

Hold my hand, everything will be okay
I heard from the heavens that clouds have been grey
Pull me close, wrap me in your aching arms
I see that you’re hurtin’, why’d you take so long

To tell me you need me? I see that you’re bleeding
You don’t need to show me again
But if you decide to, I’ll ride in this life with you
I won’t let go ’til the end

So cry tonight
But don’t you let go of my hand
You can cry every last tear
I won’t leave ’til I understand
Promise me, just hold my hand

Raise your head, look into my wishful eyes
That fear that’s inside you will lift, give it time
I can see everything you’re blind to now
Your prayers will be answered, let God whisper how

To tell me you need me, I see that you’re bleeding
You don’t need to show me again
But if you decide to, I’ll ride in this life with you
I won’t let go ’til the end

So cry tonight
But don’t you let go of my hand
You can cry every last tear
I won’t leave ’til I understand
Promise you’ll just hold my hand

Hold my hand, hold my
Hold my hand, my hand
I’ll be right here, hold my hand

I know you’re scared and your pain is imperfect
But don’t you give up on yourself
I’ve heard a story, a girl, she once told me
That I would be happy again

Hold my hand
I heard from the heavens
