Memphis May Fire – Carry On lyrics
[Verse 1]
Tug of war, back and forth,
All regard goes out the door.
Set your sights on goals and awards,
Become obsessed and watch success unfold.
Decrease the morals, increase the funds,
Don’t be too preachy if you want to be loved.
Forget conviction, just have some fun,
Mindless words can take you to number one.

[Pre-Chorus]
Say I’m selfish, say I’ve changed,
Say I abandoned what I set out to be.
Say I’m different now, say I’m lost,
But I’ll stay true no matter what the cost.

[Chorus]
I’ll stand and fight for what I love and know is right,
I’ll carry on (I’ll carry on), I’ll carry on,
Until my days are gone.
You can try to turn me into something I am not,
But I’ll stay strong (I will stay strong), I’ll carry on,
Until my days are gone.

[Verse 2]
Careful what you say,
They don’t need to know what you believe.
God forbid! I stand for something,
God forbid! I stand alone.
God forbid! I tell my story,
God forbid! It offers hope.

[Bridge]
Sell your soul for platinum,
Deny the truth for gold.
You can be the next big thing,
If you turn your back on what you know.

[Chorus]
I’ll stand and fight for what I love and know is right,
I’ll carry on (I’ll carry on), I’ll carry on,
Until my days are gone.
You can try to turn me into something I am not,
But I’ll stay strong (I will stay strong), I’ll carry on (carry on),
Until my days are gone.

[Bridge]
I will never be like you;
I’m not a puppet on a string,
I’m not one of your machines.
I’m not doing this for you,
I’m not doing this for me,
It’s bigger than what you choose to see.

[Outro]
I’ll stand and fight for what I love and know is right,
I will carry on (I’ll carry on),
Until my days are gone (until my days are gone).
They try to turn me into something I am not,
But I’ll carry on (I’ll carry on),
I’ll carry on (carry on),
Until my days are gone.
