Lyrics

Move This Thing Along (Alice Version)

Cataumet September 2015

I’ve been dying
Living and lying
I lived in delusion
Without even trying

I need a solution
My past and my using
I got to surrender
And stop this abusing
I want a solution
I want a solution

Need someone to talk with
To listen and walk with
Who knows what I’m thinking
Can help me stop drinking
Quit my old thinking
feel like I’m sinking
throw me a line
before I’m out of time

I need to move on
need to move on
Its time to move on
Move this thing along
Time to move on
Time to move on
Move this thing along

Dealing with my emotions
I go out on the ocean
I feel like I’m floating
I go through the Motions
Stars over the ocean
My eyes are wide open
Wash this pain away
Wash it away
Wash it away
