  • I've dealt with my ghosts and faced all my demons
    Finally content with a past I regret
    I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
    For once I'm at peace with myself
    I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
    I'm movin' on

    I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
    Each one is different but they're always the same
    They mean no harm but it's time that I face it
    They'll never allow me to change
    But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
    I'm movin' on

    I'm movin' on
    At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
    And I know there's no guarentee's, but I'm not alone
    There comes a time in everyone's life
    When all you can see are the years passing by
    And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

    I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
    Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
    I've loved like I should but lived like
    I shouldn't
    I had to lose everything to find out
    Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
    I'm movin' on

    I'm movin' on

  • Jimbards from TnWow. Just wow. Have been through many trials and tribulations during my life, some self-inflicted, more recent, mourning the passing of my son of 19, a tragic auto accident I had weeks before losing my son, losing my best-ever dog of 12 years, and losing my father the summer of 2021. I have been divorced twice, estranged from my kids with my first wife, been evicted, broke and bankrupt. Had none of that happened, I wouldn't have moved from Rhode Island to Tennessee (I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong), and married to the best wife EVER! I have recently come to terms with the mourning of my son, started coming out of the house to see the light of day, got back into the workforce. It makes me feel like the song was written for me, and I have come to find life HAS been patiently waiting for me! It is a VERY emotional song to me, and i break down most every time I hear it.
  • 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.
