This song is dedicated to those whose presence we all still feel among us,
to the weight of their souls which we all carry now

can you hear us
cause we hear you
can you feel us
cause we feel you
can you see us
cause oh we see you
everywhere and in everything we do

we'll carry on
we'll carry on
we'll carry on - as long as we can
we'll carry on

and though we survivors
we walk the streets
stare into
each others eyes
as we search for connection
to feel that we're alive
though part of us has died
yes deep down part of us has died

every morning
every night
we look downtown
there's no light
yet we feel your presence
we feel your weight
we feel your souls as they alight
if it's any comfort
as you watch from there
I hope you see how much we care
and know we carry you with every breath of air

we'll carry on - as long as we can
we'll carry on - doing what we can
we'll carry on - even if we don't know how
we'll carry on

for those who are left
to face the truth
no one knows
all we fear
no one knows
where we're gonna go from here
but we'll carry on
we'll carry on - even if we're scared
we'll carry on - we carry you in our prayers
we'll carry on
we'll carry on
