This line is from the song 'Moonlight Shadow' by Mike Oldfield.

I can't understand the verb 'push through' in that context. Can you help? Thanks.

The phrasal verb 'push through' can be translated to 'overcome'.
A good way to think of it is being stuck in a crowd and trying to 'push through'.
It can also have connotations of endurance, as in to push through a difficult time or situation.

Hope that helps.
