Moving On

Story Behind The Song

Death has always been difficult for me to form words around, everything I come up with seems trite in the face of oblivion. In the end, it always comes back around to the beginning and from this simple truth came this one line "I didn't know that dying would be so hard". And with that one line, a song flows, line after line, words tumbling after each other to place themselves in this picture of almost despondency but hopefully with some truth as well. Some believe death is release, and it probably is for most. Perhaps though, love, though the most hopeful and beautiful of emotions, is a chain that ties us to another without the physical body with which to manifest it.

Lyrics

I didn't know that dying would be so hard
I couldn't know the light would fade away
When I would not let you go
And now I'm lost to time
Close your eyes darling
And let me lie with silence
I'd tell you I'll be there when you wake
The truth we know, morning is gone
And I cry in shades of grey

I need to move on
Move on
My yearning heart isn't strong enough
To hold you through the veil

I didn't want for you to live this dead life
Where I am gone but ever presently
And my voice, the static loop of echoes
Requiem of fallen leaves
Let me go, release me
That I might know freedom
I'm bound in chains of memory
Forgive of me this selfish need
To love you beyond my dust and bones

I need to move on
Move on
My yearning heart isn't strong enough
To hold you through the veil

I don't deserve your pedestal
Please don't keep me this way
Remember me, but let me fade
The ashes of day

I need to move on
Move on
My yearning heart isn't strong enough
To hold you through the veil
To hold you through the veil
