(Whooo whoooo)
How do I end up in the same old place,
Faced again with the same mistakes,
So stubborn thinkin I know what is right,
But life proves me wrong everytime,
Takin roads that lead me nowhere,
How do I expect to get there,
But when will I learn to just put you first.
(Chorus)
I come to you now when I need you,
But why do I wait to come see you,
I always try to do this on my own but I was wrong cause only with you can I move on. Can I move on.
(Oh)
When I awake it's you that makes
Me strong,
And I know that you've been with me all along,
So many times I begin to close my eyes and listen to my heart,
With you life is so easy why do I
Make it hard,
Oh takin' roads that lead me nowhere how do I expect to get there when will I Learn to just put you first.
(Hey! )
(Chorus)
I come to you now when I need you,
But why do I wait to come see you,
I always try to do this on my own but I was wrong cause only with you can I move on.
I get out of my own way, let you have your way.
Cause I realize I'm no god on my own,
I'm there for you, I'll sell for you
I can't live without you.
Noooo...
(Chorus)
I come to you now when I need you,
Why do I wait to come see you,
I always try to do this on my own but I was wrong,
I was wrong, I was wrong.
With only you, only you,
With only you.
Can I move on,
Can I move on,
Can I move on.

    Well john told me move on forget the past and to me time will healed the wound of my past. That is why she move away my love ones because she had an experiences on how to lost your love ones most specially my own and precious in my life. The only remedy my pain in the past is prayer and bible. That is why
    I live and survive and win in my life now it's time for me to move on, and to to
    Achieve the time to healed the past. Amen

    This is about breaking up and learning to let go and move forward without looking back from the past.. Well, it's really easy to say but the thing is "you just can't".. It will took time to ease the pain

    From what i gathered, it sounds like a man reaching out to god in a plea to ask for help on something he doesn't have control over. And this has helped me sooo much during this past year after things ending after six years. Now when i start to feel overwhelmed with loneliness like we all do, i crank this song up and it helps me to let go... Move on.

    I cant move on. He already has. And i thought he loved me more. But i guess i was wrong. I guess it hurts me more. I guess ive won those 'i love you more' fights. I guess i loved him more. Its so hard to move on.
