Lyrics

Well, I woke up to the sound of silence
The guns were cutting like knives in a fist fight
And I found you with a bottle of wine
Your head in the curtains and heart like the Fourth of July

You swore and said we are not
We are not shining stars
This I know, I never said we are

Though I've never been through Hell like that
I've closed enough windows to know you can never look back

If you're lost and alone, or you're sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

Carry on, carry on

So I met up with some friends at the edge of the night
At a bar off 75
And we talked and talked about how our parents will die
All our neighbors and wives

But I'd like to think I can cheat it all
To make up for the times I've been cheated on
And it's nice to know when I was left for dead
I was found and now I don't roam these streets

I am not the ghost you want of me

If you're lost and alone or you're sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, and
Carry on

Whoa, my head is on fire but my legs are fine
After all, they are mine
Lay your clothes down on the floor
Close the door, hold the phones
Show me how no one's ever gonna stop us now

'Cause we are, we are shining stars
We are invincible, we are who we are
On our darkest day when we're miles away
So we'll come, we will find our way home

If you're lost and alone or you're sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, and
Carry on

Oh, oh, whoa, oh-oh-whoa
Oh, oh, oh-whoa, whoa-oh
Oh, whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh whoa-whoa, whoa, whoa

No one's ever gonna stop us now
No one's ever, no one's ever gonna, no one's ever gonna stop us now
No one's ever, ever, no one's ever gonna stop us, no one's ever
No one's ever gonna stop us now
