SWEET SURVIVOR Lyrics - Peter, Paul & Mary

Review The Song (2)



You have asked me why the days fly by so quickly
And why each one feels no different from the last
And you say that you are fearful for the future
And you have grown suspicious of the past
And you wonder if the dreams we shared together
Have abandoned us or we abandoned them
And you cast about and try to find new meaning
So that you can feel that closeness once again.

Carry on my sweet survivor, carry on my lonely friend
Don't give up on the dream, and don't you let it end.
Carry on my sweet survivor,
Though you know that something's gone
For everything that matters carry on.

You remember when you felt each person mattered
When we all had to care or all was lost
But now you see believers turn to cynics
sponsored links
And you wonder was the struggle worth the cost
Then you see someone too young to know the difference
And a veil of isolation in their eyes
And inside you know you've got to leave them something
Or the hope for something better slowly dies.

Carry on my sweet survivor, carry on my lonely friend
Don't give up on the dream, and don't you let it end.
Carry on my sweet survivor, you've carried it so long
So it may come again, carry on
Carry on, carry on.

A call to "Carry On" | Reviewer: Gerard | 6/5/14

As an aging flower child, this song caused me to reflect on the ideals I have held but lost hope of seeing come to fruition. It called me to keep up the good fight.

A song to help get you through the night | Reviewer: Joseph A.Zuchowski | 4/29/08

I was given PPM's album "Reunion" many years ago after a major break up in my life, I am frequenly subject to periods of depression and anxiety, the song I've often played this song to help get me through these periods, and to remind my self that there is always someone in this world who can use your help and not to get too wqrapped up in your problems byt to kep pushing on through!
