about

I've always loved this song by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. In the context of this exhausting election the words feel new and and refreshing. When everything feels like it is at stake it's too easy to distance ourselves from our fellow American's with different views. But, the truth is, in the next 4 days the country will elect our next leader. Then it will be time to move on. We will need to begin the process of healing. If you have not already voted, please do so! Your vote matters.

Jordon and I recorded this cover this morning in Beacon, NY at Buffalo Stack Studios. I hope it can be a moment of repose.

lyrics

It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going

Broken skyline, movin' through the airport
She's an honest defector
Conscientious objector
Now her own protector

Broken skyline, which way to love land
Which way to something better
Which way to forgiveness
Which way do I go

It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going

Sometime later, getting the words wrong
Wasting the meaning and losing the rhyme
Nauseous adrenalin
Like breakin' up a dogfight
Like a deer in the headlights
Frozen in real time
I'm losing my mind

It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going
