Carry On

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 what keeps us strong is simple

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the need to feel the same

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 but sadness overwhelms our souls

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 we search for those to blame

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 the sniffer dogs at stations

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 security on rooves

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 our awkward habits magnified

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 while cameras watch our moves

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 our rucksacks and our carriers

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 our crazy rushing lives

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 this cancer spreads in spite of all

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 with fear that cuts like knives

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 so used to searches at the grounds

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 no rattles flags or beer

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 the price of freedom grows and grows

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 this danger’s everywhere

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 last night I looked across these hills

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 the garden bathed in sun

19 Leave a comment on verse 19 0 we thought of those destroyed and gone

20 Leave a comment on verse 20 0 each precious to someone

21 Leave a comment on verse 21 0 a hundred miles from all I loved

22 Leave a comment on verse 22 0 my football and my team

23 Leave a comment on verse 23 0 my childhood spent on tubes and streets

24 Leave a comment on verse 24 0 my fifties London dream

25 Leave a comment on verse 25 0 all gone with innocence and time

26 Leave a comment on verse 26 0 all gone like smog and smoke

27 Leave a comment on verse 27 0 but still the sound from that great town

28 Leave a comment on verse 28 0 is one that beats with hope

29 Leave a comment on verse 29 0 I heard a country siren

30 Leave a comment on verse 30 0 perhaps some cow had strayed

31 Leave a comment on verse 31 0 and felt the gratitude of life

32 Leave a comment on verse 32 0 and watched the evening fade

33 Leave a comment on verse 33 0 there’s nothing we can do or say

34 Leave a comment on verse 34 0 to make this nightmare end

35 Leave a comment on verse 35 0 we know not when they’ll act or strike

36 Leave a comment on verse 36 0 at any time again

37 Leave a comment on verse 37 0 but like this heart that pounds within

38 Leave a comment on verse 38 0 we all must carry on

39 Leave a comment on verse 39 0 and while they tell us keep the faith

40 Leave a comment on verse 40 0 not so for those who’ve gone

41 Leave a comment on verse 41 0 what future now we wonder

42 Leave a comment on verse 42 0 this city town and home

43 Leave a comment on verse 43 0 we keep our spirits positive

44 Leave a comment on verse 44 0 the only way we’ve known

45 Leave a comment on verse 45 0 it seems so distant from in my youth

46 Leave a comment on verse 46 0 we’ve come so far today

47 Leave a comment on verse 47 0 those bombs our fathers dodged between

48 Leave a comment on verse 48 0 are still not far away

49 Leave a comment on verse 49 0 but we will carry on my friends

50 Leave a comment on verse 50 0 all strangers now entwined

51 Leave a comment on verse 51 0 united in our longing

52 Leave a comment on verse 52 0 for peace for all mankind

Who doesn’t know someone in London.
Everything changes.
When anger and fear grab..as they have these last days..
Love..and all we think it means and feels like is the only reality worth clinging to sometimes.
Be strong.
