Moving On and Getting Over

Album: The Search for Everything (2017)
  • Moving on and getting over
    Are not the same, it seems to me
    'Cause you've been gone, I'm growing older
    But I still can't seem to get you off my mind
    And I do believe I feel you all the time

    Moving on and getting over
    Are not the friends they used to be
    It's been so long since I got to hold you
    But I still can't seem to get you off my mind
    And I do believe I feel you all the time, all the time

    Tell me I can have the fact you've loved me to hold onto
    Tell me I can keep the door cracked open, to let light through
    For all my running, I can understand
    I'm one text away from being back again
    But I'm moving on and I'm getting over
    I'm-a getting over, I'm getting over
    I got to get over

    Moving on and getting over
    It's been so long; it just goes to show you
    That I still can't seem to get you off my mind
    And I sure would like to see you one more time

    It's taken me so long just to say "so long"
    Maybe it's all wrong, but I'm moving on
    I'm gonna get a new girl, it's something I can do, girl
    To try to get me through, girl
    'Cause I'm moving on
    I'm moving on
    And I'm moving on
    I'm moving on
    And I'm moving on
    Consider me as good as gone
    'Cause I'm moving on
    I'm moving on
    Moving on, baby
    Moving on
    Moving on
    Moving on, oh Writer/s: John Clayton Mayer
