Vertical Horizon – Carrying On lyrics

The waves on the shore
Can't be ignored
Soon they're all around you
The cavalry's failed
They've all gone
But you're holding on
It's not what you asked for

Do you cry in the morning
When the light is just forming
I know you think
I'm just carrying on
But I've been where you're going
And it's not worth knowing
Burning the days and just carrying on

You search for a way
To harvest the pain
'Cause fallout is contagious
And you're in your head
No control
Of what you let go
It's not what you dreamed of


And after all that you've forgotten
You still don't understand
You think the world broke it's promise
But it just slipped right though your hands


No more carrying on
The waves on the shore
Can't be ignored
Soon their all around you
