Carry On

(Gene Clark, Pat Robinson)



You can laugh, at the things that I want
You can say that my dreams won't come true
But you know, that I know what I want
The strength that it takes to follow through

This desire that is burning in me
Is a fire that is out of control
And I know, that you know what I mean
This heart has been broken
Over and over, over and over, so many times

That I will make my mistakes
Take my heartaches
Do what it takes to get along
I will lay down my pride
Tears I can't hide
I've made up my mind to carry on

Carry on ... if you discover
Carry on ... when dark clouds cover
Carry on ... when there's no other place to go

Carry on ... if you should stumble
Carry on ... if dreams should crumble
Carry on ... until you find your way back home

I will lay down where I can feel
All the grass and the wind in my soul
So I'll stare at the clouds overhead

Cause I've been disappointed
Over and over, over and over
So many times

That I will make my mistakes
Take my heartaches
Do what it takes to get along
I will lay down my pride
Tears I can't hide
I've made up my mind to carry on
