5 Seconds Of Summer – Outer Space / Carry On lyrics

Outer Space

[Intro (All)]
(Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh)

[Verse 1: (Luke)]
I can still taste the ocean like it was today
You said please keep on holding your hand and
The rain it came too soon, I will wait for you
So love me again


[Chorus: (Michael/All)]
I guess I was running from something
I was running back to you

Lost here in London with nothing
I'm still running back to you
If you can love me again
I could let go of everything


(Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh)

[Verse 2: (Luke)]
If I was an island in search of castaways
Maybe I'll find you here and
The rain it came too soon, I will wait for you
So love me again


[Chorus: (Calum/All)]
I guess I was running from something
I was running back to you
Lost here in London with nothing
I'm still running back to you
If you can love me again
I could let go of everything

[Bridge: (Michael/Luke/Calum)]
The darkest night never felt so bright with you by my side
The darkest night never felt so bright with you by my side
The darkest night never felt so bright with you by my side
The darkest night never felt so bright with you by my side

Nothing like the rain, nothing like the rain
When you're in outer space, when you're in outer space
Nothing like the rain, nothing like the rain
When you're in outer space, when you're in outer space
Nothing like the rain, nothing like the rain
When you're in outer space, when you're in outer space
Nothing like the rain, nothing like the rain
When you're in outer space, when you're in outer space

Love me like you did, love me like you did
I'll give you anything, I'll give you anything
Love me like you did, love me like you did
I'll give you anything, I'll give you anything

Carry On

[Verse 1: (Luke/All)]
Carry on, let the good times roll
Sail along, let your path unfold
It won't be long, won't be long, won't be long
You know it's gonna get better, you know it's gonna get better
Say a prayer for the broken bones
Cause who cares? We're all going home
And it won't be long, won't be long, won't be long
You know it's gonna get better, you know it's gonna get better

[Bridge: (Luke/All)]
I got one foot in the golden life, one foot in the gutter
So close to the other side, so far from the wonder
I got one foot in the golden life, one foot in the gutter
So sick of the tug of war, that keeps pulling me under

[Chorus: (All)]
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll

[Verse 2: (Luke/All)]
Carry on, outlast the ignorance
Moving on, survive the innocence
Won't be long, won't be long, won't be long
You know it's gonna get better, you know it's gonna get better

    I watched an interview where Calum explained the songs are losing a loved one and getting over that. They were written on separate days and Carry On is an answer to "Outer Space". I know anyone here is probably looking for that literal meaning explained in a poetic way that they can relate to, but I'm going to also explain what the song means to me. Outerspace is very clearly about loss, and I get that every time I listen to it. "Outer Space" can also be about being lost and feeling like you're on your own even when all the people in your life haven't left. "Carry On" is a more hopeful, uplifting song, full of statements meant to make you feel alive and ready to move on from where you are in your life. Both these songs (like most 5SOS songs) are written for the person listening to create a meaning themselves, also so we feel less alone and more understood. Even without the literal meaning you may have been searching for, I hope what you got out of this song is more than just a literal thing, but something you can carry in your heart and spread where ever you go in the world.
