"Movement" as written by and Robert Ragan Tom Oakes....
Dressed up, whats a movement?
I can't control, I can't confess my fear
I don't don't, everybody has a reason to call them all too young
You cut me off too young
Messed up, am I moving?
I can control, but I can't predict my years
I fall so fast and careless, it's just something I do oh

It's not like we don't know what we're fighting for

Dearly departed
certain tragedy when we started off
We were such an indestructible team when you had your plans, I had my dream

Lessons that I'm learning, I have the world suspended in my hands
You know we kill it teamed up, just me and you girl

It's not like we don't know what we're fighting for

Dearly departed
certain tragedy when we started off
We were such an indestructible team when you had your plans, I had my dream
Dearly departed
You know you messed things up, that's how you lost my trust
And now you're lost and it's all because you were not strong enough

With progress we forget
How come this always happens to me?
It's such a sudden tragedy

Hey
Wishin', listen
Looking out for me slippin'
Switchin' on a steady course
Devoted to emotions and no one even knows it
I know you him, that is how you lost me

Dearly departed
certain tragedy when we started off
We were such an indestructible team when you had your plans, I had my dream
Dearly departed
You know you messed things up, that's how you lost my trust
And now you're lost and it's all because you were not strong enough

With progress we forget
How come this always happens to me?
It's such a sudden tragedy

    General Commentwell, i'm not sure exactly what the lyrics mean, but i'll give it a shot because i LOVE the song. so pretty.

    anyways.
    so, writer's dating this girl. he might love her, i dunno, i'm not the writer. anyways. so she's tempted by this other dude and he was expecting her to be strong enough to hold out, to say no. and she didn't.

    she cheats on him and now they're over and he's all, "sweetpea, we coulda still been together if you'd kept your mouth to yourself."

    "i know you got him, that is how you lost me."
    "you know you messed things up, that's how you lost my trust
    and now you're lost and it's all because you were not strong enough."

    General Commentto me, i this song is about two friends, well in my case thats what it reminds me of. they used to be the best of friends, then the girl got someone and they drifted apart, she messed things up when she knew she could have kept the friendship going. they lost each others trust and thats how they lost eachother as a whole. thats what it reminds me of because that the kind of issue i'm in right now. i try to fix it, but he isn't doing his best at it.

    General Commentkay i agree with emoseatworms i just want to add that I think he's writing this about a his (first?)girlfriend who cheated on him when he was young. He thinks she was a bitch for it because he was nervous about 'moving' with her. Then she died (or he wishes she were). Mourning song but the overall feel of the song is kinda 'you got what you deserved'
