The song that started it all

"I'm Moving On"
Written by Phillip White and D.Vincent Williams
Performed beautifully and poetically by Rascal Flatts

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've 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 me 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 moving on 

At last I can see, life has been patiently waiting for me 

And I know there's no guarantees, 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 
I'm movin' on

Poignant, touching and achingly beautiful - especially when you cue up the song while viewing this.

I've found that if you move on fast enough, the wind will dry your tears before they can even fall.

Best of luck to you, Jess!

Thanks Jen.... great song, isn't it? The tears have already dried, thankfully.... not hard when the beauty of a place fades and you see the ugly. ;)
