  • Lyrics
  • This is a melancholy ballad, sung in almost whispers. It tells the story of a man who thinks about the trouble in his past: "I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons - Finally content with the past I regret." He states that he's finally found peace with himself, now that he has moved away from the town that he lives: "I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong - I'm movin' on." >>

  • Tami from MaineI found 'I'm Movin On" to help me get through my divorce in 2000. I now find it is time for me to move on again and the song still makes me cry and feel strong at the same time. Big changes are never easy....but powerful too. I need to take care of myself...and movin' on is the answer for me. Nothing melancholy about taking control and facing struggles with awareness.
  • Dalan from Notacityyet, MtAfter a bad divorce I left a lot behind. I moved on and when I first heard this song I cried like I never cried before. The marriage to the wrong woman for all the wrong reasons left me a bit shattered, but I moved on and to this day, I still move on ... onward and upward (but not outward "middle age spread ... lol").

    Many people can not stand the melencholy of this song. I can understand their thoughts. This song had got me through some very sad times in my life. I lost a lot to be the best person I have ever been in my life, thanks to this song.
