"Quicksand" is a song written by Lady Gaga with Fernando Garibay for Britney Spears' sixth album, Circus. The song is available on the iTunes store in Europe as a bonus track. It was originally intended for The Fame, but was given to Spears. According to Gaga, she wanted to produce Britney Spears' vocals but was in Europe at the time.

Britney is a nice girl – I just feel very honoured that she wanted to sing my song. I used to scream for her in Times Square and now I work for her. When I was 13 she was the most provocative performer of my time. I love her so much!”

—Lady Gaga

LyricsEdit

I still see your coat hangin' on the door,
Never let anybody put one there before
My pillow's got your head printed on it
Baby, of all the guys you were my favorite

Don't ask, me why
I just can't say goodbye
No not, tonight
No, I just can't say it

'Cause I'm gonna hold on
Yeah, I'm gonna hold on
Baby, gotta keep holdin' on to what we had
'Cause I don't wanna move on
So I gotta hold on
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, baby like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand

You came along I didn't know of love
But now I know that sometimes it's just not enough
I hear your footsteps in my corridor
But it is just my heart, it's pounding like before

Wish I, could try
But I just can't say goodbye
No not, tonight
No, I just can't say it

'Cause I'm gonna hold on
Yeah, I'm gonna hold on
Baby, gotta keep holdin' on to what we had
'Cause I don't wanna move on
So I gotta hold on
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, baby like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand

'Cause the ground is breaking,
I can feel it shaking
Wish it was that easy,
But it's not that easy
Gotta hold my hands up,
Gotta keep my head up
Gotta keep on breathing,
Baby even if we're sinking
Even if we're sinking
Baby even if we're sinking
Even if we are sinking

'Cause I just-just gotta-gotta hold (Hold)

'Cause I'm gonna hold on
Yeah, I'm gonna hold on
Baby, gotta keep holdin' on to what we had
'Cause I don't wanna move on
So I gotta hold on
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand
Like quicksand, baby like quicksand
Baby because you and me are sinking like quicksand

Only got one life to live,
We don't even need a piece of sand
Only you and me,
We need to hold on and hold on and...

Only got one life to live,
We don't even need a piece of sand
Only you and me,
We need to hold on and hold on and hold on
And hold on
And hold on, and hold on

And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
And hold on, and hold on, and hold on
