I didn't understand the things you're going through
I never understood I really never knew

Carry on, carry on
The sun will always shine
carry on, carry on
We'll have a glass of wine
or a cigarette

Take destiny by the hand and lead it far away
take it to another land we will all decay

Carry on, carry on the sun will always shine
carry on, carry on We'll have a glass of wine
or a cigarette

    General CommentI love it. I think there's two ways you could see this song-
    One being, it's not that bad. Keep going, because everything is good, don't worry about it. Do what you need to to get where you want to be.
    The other being...it's all rather futile and monotonous. Carry on, because the sun will always shine, we're going to decay anyway, it doesn't matter but you have to anyway.

    I prefer to see it happily.

    General CommentI rather enjoy this song - it's very pleasant and sunny, despite the bleak underpinnings ("We will all decay"). To me, it's a "live for the moment" message.

    General CommentThis song is about that when we have some problem (big or small) we shouldnt stop and surrender, we should try to fix it and CARRY ON with our life, so be optimistic and enjoy in your life cause we dont know what tommorow brings
