"Carry On" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
It's overtaken
Obsessed with faking
I'm blind
Looking at my own reflection

There's nothing changing
When I'm overtaken
The sound of your voice in my head
In my head, in my head

'cause I know, I can't let go
Am I just dead and lonely?
I'm stuck and incomplete
Still I know I must -

Carry on, carry on
Leave it all behind
Carry on when you're wrong
Am I dying inside?

Close my eyes to remind
How you look when you smile
Carry on when you're wrong
I'll pretend I'm alright

Obsessed with faking
You know I'm broken inside
Looking at my own reflection
Am I lost?
Walking backwards
To the sound of your voice in my head
In my head, in my head

'Cause I know, I can't let go
Am I just dead and lonely?
I'm stuck and incomplete
Still I know I must -

Carry on, carry on
Leave it all behind
Carry on when you're wrong
Am I dying inside?

Close my eyes to remind
How you look when you smile
Carry on when you're wrong
I'll pretend I'm alright

And what I need you can't remove
You don't feel the same as I do
Guess I burned myself today

Carry on, carry on
Leave it all behind
Carry on when you're wrong
Am I dying inside?

Close my eyes to remind
How you look when you smile
Carry on when you're wrong
I'll pretend I'm alright

Carry on, carry on

[Repeat: x4]
In my head, in my head

    General CommentAwesome song .. describes how I feel at the moment.

    I think this song is about coming to the realisation that a relationship is falling apart, and coming to terms with letting someone go, leaving everything behind and starting afresh, but still being reminded of the person you once loved.
