He hasn't seen a drop of rain formonths it seemsThe roll n river is nothing but atricklin streamThe crops are dyin in the harsh sun lightThe dust on his tongue is dryThe fatted calf is down to skin and bonesWe carry on
Alone in the city and she's only seventeenThe boy left her black and blue on thestreets so meanJust twelve weeks along and she's gota life insideSays she never ever felt so aloneShe walks in the shelter, they saywelcome home
CHOURUS:And we carry on, when our lives come undoneWe carry on, 'cause there's promise in the mornin' sunWe carry on, as the dark surrenders to the dawnWe were born to overcomeWe carry on
Beyond the picket fences and the oil wellsThe happy endings and the fairy talesIs the reality of shattered lives andbroken dreamswe carry onCarry on...
It's the family that grieves for a lostloved oneIts the soldier who wont leave 'til thejob is doneits the addict trying to turn his life aroundits pickin' yourself up off the groundwhen you've been knocked down
repeat chourus 2xWe carry onCarry on...
He stands in the field, cooled bythe winds of changeshe smiles as her baby moves and it starts to rain
