When I was a young boy

To see a marching band

Would you be the savior of the broken

The beaten and the damned??

The plans that they have made?

Interlude: G D Em G C  D 

Verse:
     G               D
Sometimes I get the feeling
       Dm            C
She's watching over me
                     G                 D
And other times I feel like I should go
     G                      D
And through it all, the rise and fall
     Dm              C
The bodies in the streets
                         G                D
And when you're gone we want you all to know

Chorus:
             G         D        Em
We'll carry on, we'll carry on
   G               C             
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
      D                  G        D       Em
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
   G       C        
And in my heart, I can't contain it
    D
The anthem won't explain it

Verse:
   G                    D
a world that sends you reeling
      Dm            C
From decimated dreams
                  G                 D
Your misery and hate will kill us all
    G                     D
So paint it black and take it back
         Dm                C
Let's shout it loud and clear
                 G                D
Defiant to the end, we hear the call

Chorus:
          G         D      Em
to carry on, we'll carry on
      G            C
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
      D                 G       D        Em
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
   G               C         
And though you're broken and defeated
      D               
Your weary widow marches

Take a look at me

          D
Do or die, you'll never make me
Em                G                     C 
 Because the world, will never take my heart.

I won't explain or say I'm sorry
             G                    C
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar

Give a cheer, for all the broken.
