"Carry on [From Last Wave Rockers]" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
Big city miles
Stretching out
Into, the terminal horizon
Don't you know we had to get away?

It was two kids, with a beat up nova,
And a dream and a 2 a.m. song

It was two kids with a beat up Nova
Singing
Come carry on

Come carry on
'Til the nights all gone
Come carry on
Come right where we belong

The impossible girl
Lit a cigarette and said
"I don't give a damn
If we never come home"

And I turned to her
In the old starlight
And a tender amazement
Swallowed up the night

We could walk along,
Be forever strong
Drive into the night,
And the right and the wrong

It was 2 kids with a beat up nova,
And a dream, and a two A.M. song
There ain't no dream
Like the one that's real

Ashby to eighty
Eighty to the bridge
Bridge down to one
Route one carry on

We ate the night up
And we shot the big coast
'Cause the shoreline makes
A heart open like a rose

She found a song on the radio
And it wiped all the blood off my halo
It was two kids,
Whose hearts were their own

Toughest that the world has ever known
