(A Soul-Blues tune about getting a new start, about the need to move on and away from the safety of a relationship and a life that has become a trap.)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
