Verse 1

It's your lack of conviction that's raising a red flag in my head.

People in love talk about how they want it to last forever,

But you talk about how everybody moves on instead.

Chorus

You say, people move on.

I think you're wrong.

Tell me your heart is not hiding a scar buried somewhere deep.

A part of you is lost with the love, and the lesson is forever yours to keep.

Moving on is not just moving ahead, living your life day by day.

It's leaving the past in the past, letting the pain fade away.

Verse 2

And no, I'm not moving on if you were to die tomorrow.

What makes you think I won't clutch the pictures near my chest?

I'll still love you, I'll only move on from the sorrow.

Chorus

You say, people move on.

I think you're wrong.

Tell me your heart is not hiding a scar buried somewhere deep.

A part of you is lost with the love, and the lesson is forever yours to keep.

Moving on is not just moving ahead, living your life day by day.

It's leaving the past in the past, letting the pain fade away.

Bridge

People move on.

And you will too.

Someday you'll untangle her from everything that you do.

Someday you'll let go of the pain.

And I'll wait till then.

Chorus

You say, people move on.

I think you're wrong.

Tell me your heart is not hiding a scar buried somewhere deep.

A part of you is lost with the love, and the lesson is forever yours to keep.

Moving on is not just moving ahead, living your life day by day.

It's leaving the past in the past, letting the pain fade away.
