IDIOM - To "hang out for dear life"

IDIOM - To "hang out for dear life":

Cliché meaning to hang on tight. To hold something or someone as tightly as you can in order to avoid falling.
Ex: "I sat behind Gary on the bike and hung on for dear life as we sped off. A rope was passed down and she held on to it for dear life as she was pulled to safety." - "As the little plane bounced around over the mountains, we hung on for dear life."
