Moving On

Everything changes. Neighborhoods and entire cities come and go. People die. Values change. And like the 60's song says, you may look at people and think "Don't they know it's the end of the world?"

But the world moves on. And, somehow, so do we.

 

Well, I knew this day was coming
Each beginning has an end
But it’s just too hard to face it
It’s so easy to pretend

Smiling faces caught forever
Living in a photograph
While the sun is dropping lower
As we hit the second half

And the world moves on
And the center is gone
And I can’t hold on
So the world moves on

Oh the good times I remember
I didn’t recognize them then
Now the buildings all are falling
And they can never rise again

And did I ever really thank you
Did you know how good you’ve done
I sing the blues after midnight
While shadows
Build up one by one

And the world moves on
And the center is gone
And I can’t hold on
So the world moves on
