Underwood, Carrie - Play On Lyrics

What you're gonna do when the show is over
What you're gonna sing when the the song ends
How you're gonna cope when there is no closure
Where you're gonna reach when the goal gets higher
How you're gonna make it through
When you think you lost your chance

Play on when you're losing the game
Play on 'cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on

Even when the floodgates swing wide open
Never let the current take you down, no
Even when you're not sure where you're going
Swimming through a mess and you can't get out
Just going through the motions
Trying not to drown

Play on when you're losing the game
Play on 'cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on

Even through a storm on the darkest night
Don't you ever give up the fight
Even when you feel you're all alone

Play on, play on

Play on when you're losing the game
Play on 'cause you're gonna make mistakes
It's always worth the sacrifice
Even when you think you're wrong
So play on

    Halleluyah means Praise YAHUAH (it does not mean praise the lord). Yet people are having a hard time to accept the fact that the true name of our Creators is YAHUAH! I want to use His true name. The four letters (tetragramaton) given to Moses by our Creator as the name of our Creator were: "yod hey uau hey". In English they are: "YHVH". Since the whole Old Testament did not have any vowels, translators had to put in the vowels to make sense of the words. These four letters are pronounced YAHUAH. Yahuah_the_Most_High Many names have been given by man to our Creator but HIS name is YAHUAH. Some would say HIS name is Yaweh. The error here is that there were NO letter "w" in the ancient Hebrew. The letter "W" was added recently. Please do your research. Our Savior's name is Yahusha Truth in YaHUaH YaHUShA Ha'Masyach His name is not Jesus Christ. Jesus means son of Zeus. Lord means Baal. And God is a generic pagan deity. However, if you think your God and Jesus Christ can save you and take you to Heaven, go for it. It is your life. Thank you.

  40. 94lulubelle


    It's their opinions that it's not a good song/type of music, and it's our opinions that we think they have no taste in music if they don't like Carrie Underwood or this song, that's what I meant.

  41. 94lulubelle

    Exactly. But of course, that's our opinions lol.

    One of the teachers at my school asked my friend and me to sing a song for our 8th grade graduation. We were trying to think of songs, and she suggested this or Change by Carrie Underwood. I hope we don't screw up the song we choose because both of the songs are so beautiful and inspirational. :)

    W/e, they're both fricken gorgeous.

  77. Diana Chahine

    @rammajamma30 well actually the majority of the songs on her CD were written by her lol

  78. naturefreak95


    haha, We all do sometime or another.

    I have my days where I can't stand it when people cut down words.

    A lot of people think others are rather uneducated when they cut down words.

  79. baseballss247

    Yeah it does seem alot like Anyway by Martina. She is Carries favorite singer.

  80. TomLennox24

    great song, reminds me of the same message of Anyway by Martina McBride

  81. naturefreak95


    You're right, but you have to accept that people are going to cut down letters to type faster or whatever.

    I even do it sometimes.

    If I want to write a quick thing to my friends or to other people I normally cut down on things like "you" or "laugh out loud".

    You do prove a good point as I said before, but @zoezoedg49 has a point too.
    this is youtube and it is online so it's to be expected to have people cutting down on words.

  82. naturefreak95

    okay? you heart her but you don't get it? =)
    Don't get what?

  83. yahairalee13
