  • Lyrics: MOVING DAY: They're lining up the boxes Up and down the hallway Moving day Loading up the truck, hey, man Be careful with that stuff Moving day 10 years of your life, yeah, it just flies by Shake loose my soul, a place gets old Moving day Hey, I'm dragging that mattress down to the street I don't ever wanna sleep on it again Yeah, it's all used up, all the dreams, the lovemaking Staring up at the ceiling waiting for the night to end Yeah, moving day, yeah, moving day I knew exactly what was coming, still it shook me anyway Moving day I've walked these rooms so many times There's a map etched on my brain Moving day We'll spend this last night together in this empty room Just like it was when we first moved in And whatever it was we were fighting for Well, we didn't win Yeah, this would be our breakthrough year More like breakdown, the nervous kind Broke down like a car by the side of the road Take off the plates and leave it behind Yeah, moving day Yeah, moving day Moving day. Moving day I swear it's still there in the walls, man, paint over it All the stupid things we did and said I turned and watched the kitchen light recede into the sea of night Then I leaned ahead Yeah, moving day...
