"Carry On" as written by George Ciukurescu, Shane Henderson, Jonathan Perry, Max Soria and Brendan Walter....
I heard your footsteps this morning
You know it's hard to get by when you don't sleep at all

I heard your footsteps this morning
You know it's hard to get by when you don't sleep at all
I'm just trying to be honest when I say
My body's feeling tired and I've got to move on
But I hope and I pray that your legs will somehow find the strength

And they all carry on
They want nothing but to be better off
And I've hurt and I've aged
But I found it in my heart to believe you are home

Some nights I have this blurred vision
Where we dance in a dream to the songs that we love
Those songs have played for the lonely souls
Who are singing along when it wasn't enough
Just to hope and to pray that their bodies somehow find the strength

And they all carry on
They want nothing but to be better off
And I've hurt and I've aged
But I found it in my heart to believe

I've been waiting for good news since you left
Little piece of my heart's been pounding out of my chest
We're all waiting for good news, aren't we now?

And they all carry on
They want nothing but to be better off
And I've hurt and I've aged
But I found it in my heart to believe you are home

I've been waiting for good news since you left
Little piece of my heart's been pounding out of my chest
We're all waiting for good news, aren't we now?

    General Commentwell. best song on the new album, by far.

    they've really cleaned up their sound, and this is a powerful song that is fun to sing to and has some meaningful lyrics behind it. inspirational.

    he's been through a lot, and this is kind of a testament to all of that. really awesome song and these guys are amazing, go see their shows if you can!

    General CommentShane has been through a lot. but this song to me is about the acceptance of what has happend. things happen for a reason, and he is understanding that she went home.
    seeing them tomorrow!!! cant wait!

    General Commentbest song off of WANARTB.
    i can't wait to see the video they made for it.


    song's pretty much about shane accepting what happened in his past and coming to terms about it. lovely song if i do say so myself.

    General CommentAlthough this song i think is about the death of his love and coming to terms with it, i also think it's a sort of remembrance to those who have fallen through suicide, and how hoping wasn't enough for them. A shame they couldn't find the strength. The 2nd verse especially refelcts that.

    General CommentAnd they all carry on
    They want nothing but to be better off

    whenever i hear that i think how everyone is usually never satisfied with what we have.. we always need more and more and more and more. sometimes you have to look at what you HAVE, never know maybe you wont feel so shitty

    i understand that has nothing to do with the song but yeah
