lyrics

charm's in limited supply
and refusing to stretch
that indefinable nothing
somehow keeps pushing you

finding the right words
can be a problem
how many times must it be said?
there's no plan, it had to happen

got to move on sometime
and it's about time
by putting one foot in front of another
and repeating the process
cross over the street
you're free to change your mind
strength through diversity
couldn't have put it more plainly

got to move on sometime (x4)

charm's in limited supply
under threat of extinction
that indefinable nothing
somehow motivates you

finding the right words
can be a problem
how many times must it be said?
there's no plan, it had to happen

got to move on sometime
and it's about time
by putting one foot in front of another
and repeating the process
cross over the street
you're free to change your mind
strength through diversity
couldn't have put it more plainly

got to move on sometime (x4)
