"On & On" as written by Mathew Kearney and Kate / York....
If tonight is your last train out of here
How you gonna run like that? How you gonna run like that?
If this one life, one love left here to share
How you gonna turn your back? How you gonna turn your back?

And I don't care if everyone knows what we're going through
Cause all the roads lead back to you

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy

If there's one thing that I need to hear from you
Is how we gonna see this through, how we gonna see this through
If there's one thing that I know to be true
Is that I'm in love with you, is that I'm in love with you

And I don't care if everyone knows what we're going through
Cause all the roads lead back to you

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy

And we'll keep on, keep on climbing on down this narrow line
So we can see the other side, the other side

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy, goes down easy
Goes down easy, goes down easy, goes down easy

    General CommentIn his recent interview featured on his website, Mat Kearney talked about "On and On":

    "'On and On was another song that I wrote with a friend. This girl named Kate York, she's a super-talented, Nashville singer/songwriter. She was just working on some chords and I started singing along and then pretty soon we're halfway through a song and we ended up just writing it. We were going to cut it off the record; 12 songs is a lot. But I like, just really felt like, this was worth something."

    Again, this doesn't really explain the meaning of the song, but the origin instead.

    General CommentFor me, he is singing about a complicated relationship. he is in love, but he knows that he is the only one hanging on this relationship. everytime it comes to an end, he tries to move on but finds himself again back to missing her, and praying for a chance ( brighter road). he believes that since their relationship is worth it, he has to save it at any cost !
