lyrics

CARRY THE ONE

Wait here ‘til the sun comes on
No matter if it’s dusk or dawn
Stay here: we’re in danger
Today we’ll have to carry her

Steer her the right way to shore
Follow the light of the sun
Steer clear the might of the storm
Today we must carry the one
‘til the sun comes on

Why,
Why is it that we grow so tired?
We care
Who do we wait for to tell us what’s desired?
What,
What is it that condemns us to this way?
Or who are they?
Who knows?
That’s why we declare that

We don’t have to wait for the world
We don’t have to wait for the world

Wait here ‘til the sun comes on
No matter if it’s dusk or dawn
Stay here: we’re in danger
Today we’ll have to carry her

Steer her the right way to shore
Follow the light of the sun
Steer clear the might of the storm
Today we must carry the one
‘til the sun comes on

If,
If we were to take up all these ropes
We could
Tow her along towards our dreams and our hopes
And,
And out of any dangerous path
So do the math
Maybe we’ll arrive where the great ones stood

We don’t have to wait for the world
We don’t have to wait for the world

Wait here ‘til the sun comes on
No matter if it’s dusk or dawn
Stay here: we’re in danger
Today we’ll have to carry her

Steer her the right way to shore
Follow the light of the sun
Steer clear the might of the storm
Today we must carry the one
‘til the sun comes on
