Moving On by The Zombies

What do you think?

‘Moving On’ was written by The Zombies keyboard player Rod Argent. 

He explained in an interview “I actually started this song in 1977 when I wrote one couplet on hearing of Elvis’ death. For some reason it has stayed in my mind all these years, although it’s no longer about Elvis. When I was writing material for this record for some reason I couldn’t get that couplet out of my mind. And I developed the whole song lyrically and musically.”

Lyrics

I’m moving on like a ship sailing windblown
Who can say where the rainbow may be found
Take my chance and I’ll sail to tomorrow
April moon can you tell me where I’m bound

I’m moving on from this place of confusion
It’s goodbye to trouble I’m leaving behind
In my life no more grief and no sorrow
Won’t allow darkness my life to define

I won’t cry for the past
For I’ve refound my freedom at last
I won’t shy from the strife
What doesn’t kill me will fill me with life

 

 

And I’m moving on to my dreams of tomorrow
Thrilled to be wherever my soul may be bound
Who can tell where the journey may lead me
Who can say where the rainbow may be found

I won’t cry for the past
For I’ve refound my freedom at last
I won’t shy from the strife
What doesn’t kill me will fill me with life

And I’m moving on to my dreams of tomorrow
Thrilled to be wherever my soul may be bound
Who can tell where the journey may lead me
Who can say where the rainbow may be found
