"Carry On" as written by and Hillary Kanter Even Stevens....
Mama went to sleep one night and never woke up
Daddy cried a tear into her old coffee cup
Now all he wants to do is drink the hurt all the way
But if mama was here I know what mama would say

Carry on
Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
Carry on

Little sister's husband ran off with her best friend
Left her and the babies all alone again
It hurts to know the hurt that she's goin' through
But I know that she'll do what she's gotta do

Carry on
Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
Carry on

Nobody ever said that life was gonna be fair
You're never gonna get no where by runnin' scared
If you look down deep inside you'll find the faith
To make you strong oh carry on

I tried to walk the sunny side of the street
Don't let no shadows tangle up my feet
There ain't no troubles that we can't rise above
With a hand full of faith and a heart full of love

Carry on
Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
Carry on
Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
Carry on
Carry on
Carry on
Carry on
