I Sing – Coeur de pirate “Carry On”

Its 3:07 pm
sunny/cloudy

A while ago when I was looking at various Serena Ryder video clips,I subscribed to the CBC Live music channel on You Tube and and one day I got a ding saying they had posted a new video. As I normally do,I checked it out and this is how I came across the singer Coeur de pirate.
Coeur de pirate is French-Canadian singer Beatrice Martin and she has been playing under the name of Coeur de pirate (which is French for pirate’s heart) since 2007.
While “Carry On” is in English,the vast majority of Coeur de pirate’s releases and live performances have been in French.
She has a lovely voice which is empathized by her singing in her native French.
I caught “Carry On” on YouTube and thought I would share it because I think its a beautiful song  and Beatrice has a real sweet and gentle aura around her vocals.

 

Carry On

We sat on the edge
Of worlds today
The light of the sundown’s on my fate
And we’re tried and true
Our souls we bare
You promised to love me for some time

So don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall
Let the nighttime come this way
Don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall your way

And carry on
Just cross the waters, I’ll be okay
‘Cause I’ve been loved, I’ve been loved enough today
I know your fears are hidden well beneath your wind
So don’t be long, leave me here, let me belong
Let me belong

In darkness, we rise
At twilight, we sway
Only then do we feel alive
The verve we once had
Lies in the bay
I hear it yelling for our lives

So don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall
Let the nighttime come this way
Don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall your way

And carry on
Just cross the waters, I’ll be okay
‘Cause I’ve been loved, I’ve been loved enough today
I know your fears are hidden well beneath your wind
So don’t be long, leave me here, let me belong
Let me belong

So don’t you let me fall, so don’t you let me fall
Let the nighttime come its way

And carry on
Just cross the waters, I’ll be okay
‘Cause I’ve been loved, I’ve been loved enough today
I know your fears are hidden well beneath your wind
So don’t be long, leave me here, let me belong
Let me belong
