Moving on baby
I went to the river, thinkin bout jumpin in
Thinkin about your ways baby
Trying to forget how to swim

As I stood there, watching the train go by
Oh what a message - that's when I realized

Oh baby, is it gonna last very long
Look at the river and how it keeps movin on
Oh baby, what we had is almost gone
Look at the river and how it keeps movin on

Movin on
Would you just look at the river
Movin on

My emotions move with the current and the wind
No direction, and no definite end
That's when I realized how the ripples in the water seemed to shine
Reminds me of you and I baby, at one point in time

And just like a river - like a river flowin - into a waterfall (Stef and Renee)
After falling are we movin on -inside I feel - I can feel it flow

Oh baby, is it gonna last very long
Look at the river look at it how it keeps movin on and movin on
Oh baby, what we had is almost gone
Look at the river and how it keeps movin on

Under the train bridge - it keeps movin on
Goes round to the whirlpool - it keeps movin on
No still waters baby, are gonna hold me down
And all I wanna know is - are you comin with me

I have got to keep moving on
Moving on yeah
Moving on I said
Moving on

Oh baby, is it gonna last very long
Look at the river look at it how it keeps movin on and movin on
Oh baby, what we had is almost gone
Look at the river and how it keeps movin on

Moving, moving
Moving, moving
Moving, moving
Would you just look at the river

Moving on
Moving on I said

Moving, moving
Moving
Moving, moving
Baby
Moving, moving
Would you just look, look at the river

Moving on
Moving on I said
