Willy Mason – Carry On chords

[Verse 1]
CBeside my bed there is a lamp
FAnd in that lamp there is a lonely moth
CHe’s got one night, he’s got one life
FAnd one thing on his mind, and that’s the fire
AmHe doesn’t care from where it comes
GHe only knows he’s got to run
FToward the brightest promise in his eye
AmNow he’s circling to the ground
GHis wings have burned, he’s falling down
F C FI just watch, and wonder how we carry on
[Verse 2]
CIt was a world I never made
FI just fell into this old parade
CThey told me it’s my time to shine
FAnd they got ways to light me up at night
AmThey didn’t care from where I came
GIt seemed they lost their pride and shame
FLooking for a fire of their own
AmOne last ember hits the ground
GThe wood’s all burned, it's ashes now
F C FIf you look up to the moon, you’ll help me carry on
[Verse 3]
COld man in a bar tonight
FHe sits down on a stool to watch the fight
CHe says “One last drink to light me up
FAnd then I do believe I’ve had enough”
AmChasing dreams that end in pain
GI’ve chased the sun, I’ve chased the rain
FBut nothing ever seemed to fill my cup
AmI see the angels circling now
GI feel the moon behind the clouds
F C FThat’s the kind of fire I’d be proud to carry on
