Carry It On

Album: Power In The Blood (2015)
  • Hold your head up
    Lift the top of your mind
    Put your eyes on the Earth
    Lift your heart to your own home planet
    What do you see?
    What is your attitude
    Are you here to improve or damn it
    Look right now and you will see
    We're only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
    So take heart and take care of your link with life and

    Oh carry it on
    We're saying
    Oh carry it on
    Keep playing
    Oh carry it on
    And praying

    It ain't money that makes the world go round
    That's only temporary confusion
    It ain't governments that make the people strong
    It's the opposite illusion
    Look right now and you will see
    They're only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
    So take heart and take care of your link with Life

    Oh carry it on
    Keep saying
    Oh carry it on
    And playing
    Oh carry it on
    And praying

    Look right now and you will see
    We're only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
    So take heart and take care of your link with

    Life is beautiful
    If you got the sense to take care of your source of perfection
    Mother Nature
    She's the daughter of God and the source of all protection

    Look right now
    And you will see she's only here by the skin of her teeth as it is
    So take heart and take care of your link with life

    Oh carry it on
    Keep saying
    Oh carry it on
    And playing
    Oh carry it on
    Keep on praying Writer/s: Buffy Sainte-Marie
