But you can hold my hand like applause, pause
Tripple entendre on the word “pause”:
- You can hold his hand to walk across the frozen sea, similar to when you “hold your applause”, meaning pause your applause.
Pause can also mean “no homo”, for the whole “hold my hand” bit.
Pause can also be Paws, playing on the hand/paw relationship that he elaborates on in verse 2.
Also, Jesus told Peter to take his hand while he was walking on water.
