You have asked me why the days fly by so quickly And why each one feels no different from the last And you say that you are fearful for the future And you have grown suspicious of the past And you wonder if the dreams we shared together Have abandoned us or we abandoned them And you cast about and try to find new meaning So that you can feel that closeness once again.
Carry on my sweet survivor, carry on my lonely friend Don't give up on the dream, and don't you let it end. Carry on my sweet survivor, Though you know that something's gone For everything that matters carry on.
You remember when you felt each person mattered When we all had to care or all was lost But now you see believers turn to cynics And you wonder was the struggle worth the cost Then you see someone too young to know the difference And a veil of isolation in their eyes And inside you know you've got to leave them something Or the hope for something better slowly dies.
Carry on my sweet survivor, carry on my lonely friend Don't give up on the dream, and don't you let it end. Carry on my sweet survivor, you've carried it so long So it may come again, carry on Carry on, carry on.
