I Carry On (Single) - Francine Honey

I Carry On...A song of strength, courage, love and gratitude.

There are people in your life that show up and help you, inspire you.  It may be the smallest of gestures or it may be grand.  It is simply the thought behind it and in those people that help us get through a trying time.  My neighbour Robert Gray, is also a songwriter and he asked me if I would be interested in helping write a song of gratitude that he had in his mind.  That is what started our collaboration on “I Carry On”.  This song is a testament to the human spirit and its ability to overcome the challenges that life throws our way.  Where does this courage come from?  When the path through is unclear, there are unexpected heroes that appear with help.  Whether it is a partner, a caregiver, a parent, a child, a friend, or one’s faith in something larger than life, this song expresses gratitude to those that light our world and help us through.  There is nothing like seeing the light of love beaming from someone’s eyes when we need it most. 

It is the title track of the album because I believe that every song on this album points to this theme.  The resilience of the human spirit to keep going.  This song has been a gift for you.  Thank you for being a light in the world and I hope that this song inspires you to thank those around you that have helped you  carry on.

Song Lyrics


I Carry On

© Francine Honey and Robert Gray (SOCAN)

Your light shines on me
Your love strengthens me
Your peace carries me
You’re in my heart helping me carry on
I carry on

Your light gives me peace
Your love washes everything
When I’m lost and all alone
Your love, makes me sing I’ll carry on

CHORUS
And I know, you’re here with me
And I know, you hear my every need
And I know, you give me strength, helping me to carry on
I carry on

Thank you for loving me
Thank you for holding me
I follow your every lead, 
your love, your light

And I know, you’re here with me
And I know…
And I know, you’re here with me
And I know, you hear my every need
And I know, you give me strength, helping me to carry on
I carry on I carry on.

Is there someone in your life that helps you carry on?

Your peace carries me
You’re in my heart helping me carry on
I carry on

Your light gives me peace
Your love washes everything

Your love, makes me sing I’ll carry on

And I know, you give me strength, helping me to carry on
I carry on

Thank you for loving me
Thank you for holding me

And I know, you’re here with me
And I know…
And I know, you’re here with me
And I know, you hear my every need
And I know, you give me strength, helping me to carry on
I carry on I carry on.
