about

"I have loved this song since I first heard it on singer-songwriter Sarah Masen's album (of the same title) in 1998... it has been one of my go-to favorites when I need a morale boost, and an incredibly fun song to perform live. It so wonderfully reflects how insecure and hopeful and messy and beautiful the human experience is, all wrapped in this celebratory music that makes my soul dance." - Halie

lyrics

CARRY US THROUGH
written by Sarah Masen

***

I took a train
headed home

where the colors stream
and my thoughts they go...
I was looking up for the wind to blow,
to come carry us through

Well, sometimes there's doubts,
and the dogs, they bark
and you're just not sure
what is in the dark.
I start to cry
oh, but then the wind goes by,
to come carry us through 


Carry us through
carry us through

I was looking up
for the Wind to blow,
to come carry us through.

When we think that it's over,
Baby we find new things to be afraid of.
If we pray till we're older,
and believe that there is hope -
even in the night,
there is hope.

We grab existence
by our defeats

and somehow laugh
when we are weak .

We're being made strong
from underneath,
to come carry us through

So take off of your shoulders 

the burdens that you carry of your own regret ...

because someone else needs holding,

and it's very hard to smile when you are all stuck inside yourself

So we close our eyes
and we see the Light

There are so many
Oh, to hold on tight 

Don't be afraid
to pray just like a child:
Carry us through

Carry us through
carry us through

I been looking up
for the Wind to blow,
To come carry us through


Carry us through
carry us through,
Carry us through
I been praying, oh, I'm so overdue

Come carry us through 



I been looking up
Where are You?
To come carry us....
Carry us through.
