lyrics

I MOVED ON

capo III
verse: F C (riff) x2 F Am F C (riff)
pre-chorus: Em F Em F Em E
chorus: F C (riff) x2 F Am D9 F Em F F F

those three long-awaited words
i'm not strong enough to curse
but i won't push it aside like the jealous tide
it's for the best, well that's absurd
just like the rest, well rest assured
i can't close my eyes. i see both sides

[PRE]
& labour at the precipice
i should have told you more or less
it's too late

[CHORUS]
i moved on...i moved on
i have gone away i couldn't stay for long
i moved on

autumn's wounds have laid you low
an oversight...like i would know
& in whom you confide; my guilt, your pride
every word's a private eye
a sharpened knife, a means to pry
& you might pull it apart. at least you'll try

[PRE]
& the hearts you lay bare
well don't just stand there
it's too late

[CH]
i moved on...i moved on
i have gone away i couldn't stay for long
i moved on
