Fun – Carry On lyrics

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 in the edge of the night
At a bar off seventy five
And we talked and talked about how our parents will die
All our neighbors and wives

But I 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

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'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

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

    I think it is about a person realizing they have an addicted gf/bf. They partied the night before and know how it feels to have a hangover but seeing that their mate has a problem and they want to help them. Saying thought I've never been through hell like that, I've closed enough windows to know you can never look back. Saying that you can't change your mistakes but you can always try to be better and carry on. At the end of the song I think the gf/bf says ok help me and they are coming together to become shining stars, and find their way home. Great song even if this is not what it means!

    I think it is, also, about every day life & its issues. Sometimes they tend to loom large for some people and there is no outlet. People tend to find many ways to come to grips with it, but these lyrics, especially, give people the incentive or strength to move forward, its ok.
