We Move On

A bit of a sad song. Although we may feel this way sometimes, it isn't forever, and we do all move on, sometime and somehow.

Also, no complaints about the singing. I'm not putting it up here to showcase, and I don't pretend to be a vocalist. It's simply here for you to enjoy if you want, and to switch off if you don't :-) Quality as well, this thing has been hacked at and slashed so many times, in and out of different audio editing programmes and formats (at least 2 editers and 4 formats) - it isn't ideal but it'll have to do.

Lyrics:

(Gloria, Gloria)
5 o'clock, the car is rolling home: gravel drive, a rusty lock, and no key.
There's just me.
Favourite song on the radio -God, it feels so long ago, just dancing.

But the winds of change blow hard and fast,
We try to make the moment last, but nothing lasts,
Oh, nothing lasts.
It all comes back from the past,
And we move on.

Hand on the door, sudden shocking breeze.
Bags on the floor, shoes in the corner.
Fix myself a ready meal,
Watch the counter counting down my seconds in my day.
I don't feel...

...satisfied with something in my life - it's,
It's like it's cheating me, no dice
Can save me, but lately...
Send me a zepher, I might fly away
Please listen as I say:
"Lift up my wings!"

(Gloria! Gloria!)

A drive out to the woods.
I feel like Robin Hood without his band of Merry Men -
I'm on my own again, when not so long ago I'd soar,
When I'd be certain there was more to life
Than me.

Still, I pretend, another day, another sunset and we fade away.
Who'll notice I am gone, when in this world, we all move on...

(Lift up my wings...)

Thanks for this.

I've had this song on my mp3 player for a while and I listened to it a lot, but I never really "listened" until the other night.

Thank you. This song is just what I needed.

I found the vocals to be soothing, and the lyrics are extremely well written and can relate to every person; if only we all knew how to interpret them.

Absolutely wonderful, all in all. =)
