He hasn't seen a drop of rain for months it seems
The rollin' river is nothing; but a tricklin' stream
The crops are dyin' in the harsh sunlight
The dust on his tongue is dry
The fatted calf is down to skin and bones
We carry on

Alone in the city and she's only seventeen
The boy left her black and blue on the
Streets so mean
Just twelve weeks along and she's got
A life inside
Said she never ever felt so alone
She walks in the shelter, they say
Welcome home
We carry on

When our lives come undone
We carry on
'Cause there's promise in the morning sun
We carry on
As the dark surrenders to the dawn
We were born to overcome
We carry on

Beyond the picket fences and the oil wells
The happy endings and the fairy tales
Is the reality of shattered lives and
Broken dreams
We carry on

Its the family that grieves for a lost
Loved one
Its the soldier that won't leave til the
Job is done
Its the addict trying to turn his life around
Its pickin' yourself up off the ground
When you've been knocked down
We carry on

When our lives come undone
We carry on
'Cause there's promise in the morning sun
We carry on
As the dark surrenders to the dawn
We were born to overcome
We carry on

When our lives come undone
We carry on
'Cause there's promise in the morning sun
We carry on
As the dark surrenders to the dawn
We were born to overcome
We carry on
Carry on
We carry on

He stands in the field, cooled by
The winds of change
She smiles as her baby moves and it starts to rain
