She Moves On

ŠPaul Simon, released on The Rhythm of the Saints, 1990

.

I feel good

It's a fine day

The way the sun hits off the runway

A cloud shifts

The plane lifts

She moves on

.

But feel the bite

Whenever you believe that

You'll be lost and love will find you

When the road bends

And the song ends

She moves on

.

I know the reason I

Feel so blessed

My heart still splashes

Inside my chest, but she

She is like a top

She cannot stop

She moves on

.

A sympathetic stranger

Lights a candle in the middle of the night

Her voice cracks

She jumps back

But she moves on

.

She says "Ooh my storybook lover

You have underestimated my power

As you shortly will discover"

.

Then I fall to my knees

Shake a rattle at the skies

I'm afraid that I'll be taken

Abandoned, forsaken

In her cold coffee eyes

.

She can't sleep now

The moon is red

She fights a fever

She burns in bed

She needs to talk so

We take a walk

Down in the moonlight

.

She says "Maybe these emotions are

As near to love as love will ever be"

So I agree

.

Then the moon breaks

She takes the corner that's all she takes

She moves on

.

She says "Ooh my storybook lover

You have underestimated my power

As you shortly will discover"

.

Then I fall to my knees

I grow weak, I go slack

As if she captured the breath of my

voice in a bottle

And I can't catch it back

.

But I feel good

It's a fine day

The way the sun hits off the runway

A cloud shifts

The plane lifts

She moves on

.
