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
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guaruntees, 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

    General Commentsammie jo, I know exactly how you feel. The situation you described sounds too farmiliar with myself and my best friend. I will always love him a little more than I should for best friend purposes. He knows how much I care about him and the thing is, it is mutual. No, he doesn't think of me anymore as girlfriend type love and caring, but we still tell each other we love each other and slowly I am learning to let go of the guy I fell for and hang on tight to the best friend I have. I've loved like I should and lived like I shouldn't, but I am finding the right road with his help.

    General Commentthis song drains me everytime i hear it. and i always seem to end up in tears.

    and also, i know excatly what you guys mean. I have a best friend who i care for deeply, maybe a little to deeply. but the worst part is, im going out with his best friend. I have learned that, sometimes it sucks to have the same best friend that your best friend has. But, none the less, i love him so much. he will always be there to for me, and the only thing that gets me through it is the fact that he will always be there for me, and what happens, happens.

    I have decided to let fate take it turns, because i have enough trust in it to know that it will get to the right place one day.

    I just hope that day comes soon.

    General CommentBeing only fourteen, some might say I haven't lived long enough to say that this song reminds me of myself. But, it does. I have yet to face my demons.. and be at peace with myself, but this song gives me a little hope.. in a way I think they're trying to say that it's okay to move on, that the past is the past and it will never change so just live.. because you have your whole life ahead of you. That's just how I interpreted this song though. Heh.

    General Commentto me, this song is all about being hung up on someone for so long... that you just get so comfortable with them..."but i never dreamed home would end up where i dont belong" its like your just so comfortable with someone, and its all you've known, crushing on them for the longest time, building a relationsip, and then all of a sudden your not welcome anymore and they start to shut you out...and you regret things youve done to cause them to feel that way... and eventually you realize that you have to move on, they're not the only one out there, there are other ppl that can effect you too... and you havent wasted your time cause "life has been patiently waiting for me".

    General Commentthis song means so much to me. It has been an anthem for me through a lot of hard times and I really like it. Rascal Flatts does an awesome job with the harmony on this song and the whole disc... they are very talented.
