If this is all I have to give
These written words exposing within
And everyone has a secret of sin
Then why do I feel all alone in the end

My fists are clenched in cold
My fists unclench to hold

I carry the fire.
I carry it home
I'll lead the way lighter til the breaking of dawn
To cover up mistakes
The sun will shine out
I'll carry you with me
And we'll carry on, carry on

So don't let it show
From the underwear under your clothes.
Don't tell your mother that you're running low
Don't confess to your father that you don't know.

My fists are clenched in cold.
My fists unclench to hold

I carry the fire.
I carry it home
I'll lead the way lighter til the breaking of dawn
To cover up mistakes
The sun will shine out
I'll carry you with me
And we'll carry on, carry on

Keep carrying on
Keep carrying on
Keep carrying on

Because my fists are clenched

I carry the fire.
I carry it home
I'll lead the way lighter til the breaking of dawn
I carry the fire.
I carry it home
I'll lead the way lighter til the breaking of dawn
To cover up mistakes
The sun will shine out
I'll carry you with me
And we'll carry on

Keep carrying on

    General Commentsome corrections based on what i hear (it also helps to listen to live videos)
    put an "If" in front of the first line

    I'll lead the way lighter till the breaking of dawn
    to cover up mistakes

    after first chorus its
    "so dont let it show"
