GETTIN' ON WITH MY LIFE

(words & music by Grayson Hugh)

 

 

I’ve been stuck here by the roadside

for way too long

now it’s time to get movin’

get to where I belong

everybody’s been tellin’ me

how it’s time to get away

I know I’m gonna get there

somehow, some way

 

I’m gettin’ on with my life

and I’m goin’ without a care

I know this direction

is gonna take me somewhere

I’m gettin’ on with my life

now a new day is here

I’m gonna give up my excuses

all my sorrows, sadness and my fear

 

Lord it’s hard to leave you

we’ve been together for so long

but I’ve gotta heed this feelin’

I know that stayin’ would be wrong

I’ve been tellin’ myself a story

and I’ve been tellin’ it to you

and I found myself believin’ it

now I know what to do

 

I’m gettin’ on with my life

and I’m goin’ without a care

I know this direction

is gonna take me somewhere

I’m gettin’ on with my life

cause I was caught in a snare

took a while for me to see it

to see through this whole sad affair

lost in the dark, now I’m out of there

 

Passing pine trees as I go

I’m leavin’ the coast and clay

all the things I know

 

Now I’m drivin’ down the interstate

I can hear that highway wind

comin’ from the western ocean

it’s blowin’ back east again

ain’t nobody gonna find me

don’t you try, try to write to me

no tellin’ where I’ll wind up

but I know I’ll be free

 

I’m gettin’ on with my life

and I’m goin’ without a care

I know that the road

is gonna take me somewhere

I’m gettin’ on with my life

cause now a new day is here

I’m gonna give up my confusion

and I’m happy

so happy now that I’m here

gettin’ on with my life

yeah, cause I’m goin’, I’m goin’

I’m goin’ on
