Day 16- A Song That Makes Me Cry

I've decided to continue on with this challenge... I'll just do it at my own pace : )

Day 16 is a song that makes me cry, or nearly. This one is by Racal Flatts, "I'm Movin' On," and it definitely makes me teary-eyed every time. A specific memory I have of this song is in high school when our guard instructor played this song and had us get in a line and go down the line and hug every person and say something special to them so that we each had a private moment with everyone... I think we did this when the seniors were leaving. It was very emotional, and it's the kind of song that I think a lot of people can relate to.

"I'm Movin' On"
Rascal Flatts

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on

I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
I'm movin' on
