Move On

Move On
No Doubt (1992)
(E. Stefani / T. Kanal / T. Dumont / G. Stefani / A. Young)
Additional Information: "Move On" was originally written about Earth's history but Tony had re-written the lyrics to reflect the history of No Doubt. Adrian has called his writing credit on the song a "mistake". Later in the Tragic Kingdom tour the band incorporated The Specials' "Ghost Town" into a medley. The lyric "We moved on… / To our house in the middle of the street" is an homage to Madness' "Our House".

Some chickens crossed the road, straying far from the hen
Five reached the side one step below Zen
One was a female, four were mad-men

Who moved on, moved on moved on
Joined hands and moved on

Standing in line and falling asleep
Building a fence while we’re counting the sheep
We’d let you help out but our project’s too deep

Move on, move on, move on
Stay awake, just move on

You have to understand that when it comes to making music
We meshed the styles of five alive and intertwined and fused it
Life comes from life and through our strife we strove to make the sound true
Compelled to spell it out (no doubt) in search of what we must do

Our house was too small so we had to move
The neighbors had much doubts so we had to prove
That our soulful dimensions were true to the groove

We, moved on, moved on, moved on
To our house in the middle of the street

Water the music, plant the seeds in the pot
Music’s the life flowing through… is it not?
Don’t forget your roots, but also don’t rot

Move on, move on, move on
Plant the seeds ond move on

You have to understand that when it comes to making music
We meshed the styles of five alive and intertwined and fused it
Life comes from life and through our strife we strove to make the sound true
Compelled to spell it out (no doubt) in search of what we must do

Don’t be afraid, let your feelings show
Wear your heart on your sleeve, and let yourself glow, yeah

Don’t be afraid, let your feelings show
Wear your heart on your sleeve, your heart on your sleeve
And let yourself glow, yeah

Don’t be afraid, let your feelings show
Let yourself glow, yeah
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
