  • Well I woke up to the sound of silence the cars
    Were cutting like knives in a fist fight
    And I found you with a bottle of wine
    Your head in the curtains and heart like the fourth of July

    You swore and said we are not
    We are not shining stars
    This I know
    I never said we are

    Though I've never been through hell like that
    I've closed enough windows to know you can never look back

    If you're lost and alone
    Or you're sinking like a stone
    Carry on
    May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
    Carry on

    Carry on, carry on

    So I met up with some friends in the edge of the night
    At a bar off seventy five
    And we talked and talked about how our parents will die
    All our neighbors and wives

    But I like to think
    I can cheat it all
    To make up for the times, I've been cheated on
    And it's nice to know
    When I was left for dead
    I was found and now I don't roam these streets
    I am not the ghost you want of me

    If you're lost and alone or you're sinking like a stone,
    Carry on
    May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground and
    Carry on

    Woah my head is on fire
    But my legs are fine
    After all they are mine
    Lay your clothes down on the floor
    Close the door
    Hold the phone
    Show me how
    No one's ever gonna stop us now

    'Cause we are
    We are shining stars
    We are invincible
    We are who we are
    On our darkest day
    When we're miles away
    So we'll come, we will find our way home

    If you're lost and alone
    Or you're sinking like a stone
    Carry on
    May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground and
    Carry on

    (No one's ever gonna stop us now)
    (No one's ever, no one's ever gonna stop, no one's ever gonna stop us now)
    (No one's ever, no one's ever gonna stop , no one's ever gonna stop)
    (No one's ever gonna stop us now) Writer/s: JEFF BHASKER, ANDREW DOST, JACK ANTONOFF, NATE RUESS
