Liner Notes: 

This is one I've worked on for a week or so, unusual for me, but it turned out OK, I think.

Lyrics: 

Just Keep On Moving On

V1
I used to come here as a kid
I’d play my guitar and sing
On a real good night I’d get paid
And sometimes I’d get laid

V2
Now the bar stools are all empty
And the till has lost its ring
A tea towel on the beer pumps said
That this old place is dead

Chorus
Nothing stays the same
Everything moves on
You can’t go back
What’s gone has gone
Just keep on moving on

V3
I called out loud but no one came
There’s nothing here but ghosts
I turned around and walked away
The memories could stay

Chorus
Nothing stays the same
Everything moves on
You can’t go back
What’s gone has gone
Just keep on moving on

I like the imagery. Empty ghost bar. It feels very present right now.

I wanted to read the lyrics first - can't wait to hear what Bill did with them!
Ghosts, bars, and guitars - three of my favorite things in one beautifully sad lyric.
