And you say this ain't living
You say you can't go on
You only take as you've given
And now your hope is all but gone

Though you lost your way (Now is not forever)
But I know your pain

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts

There are tides slowly rising, the storm is on it's way, yeah
But you can't keep on fighting, so battered, worn and so afraid
Though it's sad and wrong, I hope you will remember

You must carry on

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts

There's still tomorrow, hold on, hold on
There's still tomorrow, just wait, just wait
There's still tomorrow, hold on, hold on

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts

    Carry on, exactly. I believe that things will get better, you just have to find your own inner strenght, inner peace... And carry on, man.

    On the verge of suicide or giving in. It can be related to anything, like a job, or peice of work. But in this case it is life, and i would say it is saying not to kill yourself because "there's still tomorrow, just wait, just wait

    We must go on no matter what has happened in our life. Suicide is not the answer.
    This was close to home for me after my dad died and my wife left me. I felt I had nothing else to live for all the people that I cared for has left me. But like the song says you must carry on even though it hurts cause sone day you will get what you deserve.
