Well, I woke to the sound of silence
The cries 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 the 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

Woah
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 phone,
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 will 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 on on on oh ohh oh oh oh oh oh
oh ohh oh oh oh oh oh

No one is ever going to stop us now
No one is ever going to stop us now
No one is ever going to stop us now
