"Carry On" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Jack A O'shea, Nick Ghanbarian and Christopher John Guglielmo....
Don't confuse neediness for love
Because obsession never lasts and you're insane by a landslide
I never cared for you much until death do us part
You'll always be distressed

Carry on with the guise of a sheep in a storm
You're a wolf and you're losing the ground that you're on

But hey, hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red and people change
I've changed for good this time

And I've followed you around
I've seen you all over town
I've got a laundry list telling you why
It follows to prove I was right

Carry on with the guise of a sheep in a storm
You're a wolf and you're losing the ground that you're on

But hey, hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red and people change
I've changed for good this time

I just can't handle this, I'm just so scared of it
A challenge fit for a man when I'm just a kid
I'm all torn at the seams, just like you said I'd be
If this is love then I don't want a part of it

I just can't handle this, I'm just so scared of it
A challenge fit for a man when I'm just a kid
I'm all torn at the seams, just like you said I'd be
If this is love then I don't want a part of it

But hey, hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red and people change
I've changed for good this time

Carry on, carry on
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Hey, hey, carry on
Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on

    General Commentpelicansss....i was listening to sirius radio the other day and for some unknown reason had 70's shit on...you're thinking of ABBA's song "SOS"...there's a bridge in that song that has pretty much the same melody/chord progression as the chorus to "Carry On", maybe save for a half step alteration or so.

    General Commenti luv the 1st lines of this song:
    Don't confuse neediness for love
    because obsession never lasts
    and you're insane by a landslide

    the song is simple he has a ex-girlfriend-stalker

    General Commenti just think he's addressing an ex girlfriend who turned to him for a relationship when in reality she was needy to have anyone, and as we know lust and obsession never last like love would. he's tried repeatedly to get her out of his life and undo the problems she created, but he's finally changing for the better.

    this song is wonderful, and the beat is extremely catchy.

    General CommentEverytime I turn on this song I go "This song rocks" and start jumping around, so when this song comes on my mood completely changes.

    General Commentits 'you'll always be distressed,'


    instead of "youll always be the.."




    and yes clearly about a crzy ex girlfriend, but i think anthony is this song clearly states that he was the one who may haev been stalking and checking on her

    "and i follor you around, ive seen you all over town, ive got a laundry list telling me wy, it follows toprove i was right'
