"Gonna Move" as written by and Paul Pena....
When I was a little girl I felt so alone
Quiet country house I had to call home
Living with a couple folks, rich millionaires
Sat on their money Lord it seems they didn't care

Finally we moved to our own place
Where I could walk around with a smile on my face
And i knew in order to make a stand
I had to pull up my roots and move on in this land

I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there
I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there

Came to a school in the big city
Looked around at the lights and I thought they were pretty
They told me they'd teach me to live by their rules
So I wouldn't be nobody's fool

I found out, not too long
Their rules wouldn't let me sing my song
I knew in order to make a stand
I had to pull up my roots and move on in this

I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there
I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there

Solo

I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there
I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there

Then I joined the college ranks
There they said they'd teach me how to think
Gave me books to read and papers to write
They didn't know that this girl's come to fight

But I found out after awhile
Reading them books was making me loose my smile
I knew in order to not conceal
I had to play music and express what I feel

I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there
I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me if you want to go there

I'm gonna move away from here
You can find me but you're gonna have to go there.
