Are you sure it's not 'threshold' rather than 'fresh hold'?

I checked it and found that the lyrics listed at Google Music Play are full of errors, including your "fresh hold". But the one at looks perfect. The line in question is "The threshold is breaking tonight". It probably means the established first step (in people's relationships, as I interpret it) is crumbling down.

Song lyrics sometimes mean something. Sometimes they are just a collection of words that sound nice together. I suspect in this case it's the latter...
