about

I wrote this as a plea to the woman in the song (and to abused women in general) to leave her abuser.

lyrics

VERSE 1
He says he’ll change but change is like a mountain
He swears he has the guts to overcome
He holds you close and begs you not to doubt him
Your leaving words dissolve upon your tongue

CHORUS
Move on
Move on

VERSE 2
And so his angel wings quickly grew in
And he was charming for a week or two
But now more than a promise has been broken
Makeup cannot hide what he's done to you

CHORUS
Move on
Move on

BRIDGE
Hold your breath, count to ten
Take a step, step again
Get in the car, shift to drive
Hit the gas, don’t waste time

CHORUS
Move on
Move on

I also perform locally sometimes as part of an original, cow-pop band called Satellite Rodeo and as part of an original duo called The Letter Show. This collection of recordings is my first solo record. Thanks for listening! ... more
