Music Monday - Grammy's Inspired

The lead singer of the group I chose for this week’s inspirational song told people at the Grammy’s last night that his group had been working hard and been up until recently unknown for the past 12 years. And I think that their song ‘Carry On’ probably means a lot to me in the sense that they never gave up. For 12 years, they continued on and they kept working until they got to where they are today. So I wanted to share this song with you. No matter what is going on in your life, carry on. Things may be hard now, but in order to get through the bad times, you must keep going. You must carry on. My favorite post of the song is the chorus: 



"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”


May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground is a beautiful metaphor that they use to tell people to just keep moving. Keep walking forward, away from your past. Do not let it define you. Carry on. Keep going.

One of the parts of the song that speaks to me beside the chorus is:
“So I met up with some friends At the edge of the night At a bar off 75 And we talked and talked About how our parents will die Our neighbors and wives”

It’s morbid, I know. But, my heart friends and I have talked more than once about death, and how we know we are more likely to die young than our healthy friends and family members. It scares us but when we talk about it, we are able to get out our feelings about it. When we talk about it, we reassure each other that we are not alone and that we all feel the same way about this topic.

So the next time you’re feeling down, turn on this upbeat song and just “Carry On”. 

Carry On by FUN.

Well I woke up to the sound of silence Cries 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 At the edge of the night At a bar off 75 And we talked and talked About how our parents will die Our neighbours 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 are to 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 Carry on
Whoa My head is on fire But my legs are fine After all they are mine Lay your clothes down on the floorClose the door Hold the phone Show me how No one’s ever gonna stop us tonight
'Cause we are We are shining stars We are invincible We are who we are On our darkest day When we’re miles away Sun will 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 Carry on
Oooh. Oooh Oooh Oooh
(No one's ever gonna stop us tonight) (No one's ever, no one's ever gonna stop, no one's ever gonna stop us tonight) (No one's ever, no one's ever gonna stop, no one's ever gonna stop, no one's ever gonna stop us tonight)
Hope and Love,
Becca
