Gentleman Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

But I was blinded by the lights I saw reflecting in their eyes
It blinded me from the sea of everybody's smiles
And I was young and best, so I thought I'd test the night
Yeah, I thought that we could leave before the light fell down
I wasn't listening

So carry on young gentlemen
Well I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

Carry on young gentlemen
I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

We left after dark, the sun had fallen for the moon
And all the moments raced, it's going way too fast, it's way too soon
So I sat alone, before a moment they came back
And now I'm stuck right here, reeling in the slack
Now from my previous nights

So carry on young gentlemen
Well I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

Carry on young gentlemen
I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

Deliver me now from everything we should not do
It's so unpredictable but still you know just what you're gonna do
And even the moments that fall flat
Something is different, even though it's hard to mean that
I wasn't listening

So carry on young gentlemen
Well I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

Carry on young gentlemen
Well I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for

I'll stand for something, I'll stand for something
I will stand for something, yeah

So carry on young gentlemen
I have done all that I can
I have done all that I'll stand for, yeah
