Music Monday – 27th May 2019

Music Monday is a weekly meme created by The Tattooed Book Geek, check it out.

I started with posting this last week, and I love that this breaks up the bookish posts a little. And I’m one of those people who cannot read a book unless there is some sort of background noise. More often than not, I am listening to music when I’m reading.

This week I have chosen a song called Carry On by a band, fun. Now fun. (its stylised with the fullstop at the end of their name, I’ve not just lost all knowledge of grammar!) are one of my favourite ever bands. Though they only released two albums before they went on an indefinte hiatus, oh my broken heart, those two albums are some of the best I’ve listened to. The song Carry On, is my all time favourite song and it as a lot of meaning to me, I even have carry on tattooed on me. It means that much!

I hope you all enjoy here is their official video, lyrics below. I also linked to their website and wikipedia page above so if you want to you can find out a bit more about them, and check out their other songs – I highly recommend.

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 JulyYou swore and said we are not
We are not shining stars
This I know
I never said we areThough I’ve never been through hell like that
I’ve closed enough windows to know you can never look backIf 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 onCarry on, carry onSo 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 wivesBut 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 meIf 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 onWoah 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 homeIf 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

Hope you are all well, Lou @ Wishful Books Reviews
