Herbie Hernandez / Darden Smith

18 years old I could see
The passing train wouldn’t wait for me
A new direction was what I’d need
18 years old I could see
That I gotta keep moving
I can’t stand still
I gotta keep moving
I always will

I learned hard lessons and I grew up fast
It’s hard to hold on when nothing lasts
My wife and my brothers and my peace of mind
All caught another train rolling down the line
So I gotta keep moving
Try to make things right
Gotta keep moving
While I’m stlll alive

I gotta keep moving
Can’t look back
Over my shoulder
Don’t look back

I had to find a way to prove to myself
There’s something more than hate and guilt
And love
Where is the love
It wasn’t in the bottle and it wasn’t in the pills
I was looking then and I’m looking still
For love

I used to love to sleep but not no more
Nightmare always coming through my door
Haunted by demons night and day
Just to get peace the only way
Is I gotta keep moving
Moving on
Gotta keep moving
I sing a moving song
