A song

What happened to you?
When you couldn't ignore the line
That got marked across your life
What did you do?

Did you get angry?
Did you get scared?
No I didn't think so
You were just getting some air.
And you were moving right along.

They were asking about you,
How were you going to cope?
And was there any hope?
They thought they knew.

They thought you'd falter.
They thought you'd fail.
But I knew better.
You were just setting sail.
You were moving right along.
Moving right along.

Where did you go?
What did you do?
When it all just changed so fast,
And the ground just came right out from under you?

Did it get you down
The things they said?
Well they've got nothing better to do,
And anyway there's another morning,
There's another day.
With a little time my friend
You know that you can get yourself
Back on your way.

And you'll be moving right along.
Moving right along.

- Paul Dempsey
