Hello,

I'm looking for a song or two or three, I don't care about the count, or genre as long not rap/hip-hop.

The topic I'm searching for is to tell someone stop living on the past and move on, forget the past and move on, future is good .. or something like this.

Only song came to my mind is this :

Thanks for taking the time to read this and much appreciated if you going to help, also I love the community in here you guys got a nice one !

I hope your week heading to a good start.

Hi Unseen, welcome to Songfacts :thumbsup:

I'll start with:

Rearviewmirror

Saw things so much clearer

once you... were in my

Rearviewmirror

another one:

PS You Rock My World ~ Eels

maybe a bit too dark in it's theme, but it's definitely one of the best "moving on" songs that I know

I was at a funeral

the day I realised

I wanted to spend my life with you

sitting down on the steps

at the old post office

the flag was flying at half mast

and I was thinkin' 'bout how

everyone is dying

and maybe it's time to live...

Edited by
next song

M People - Moving on Up

"'Cos I'm moving on up. You're moving on out.

Movin' on up. Nothing can stop me.

Moving on up. You're moving on out.

Time to break free. Nothing can stop me,

Yeah."

Present Tense - Pearl Jam

You can spend your time alone

Redigesting past regrets, Oh

Or you can, come to terms and realize

You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself, Oh

Makes much more sense to live in the present tense

One of my favourites off No Code.. I think it fits here :)

Don't Stop

Fleetwood Mac

If you wake up and don't want to smile

If it take just a little while

Open your eyes and look at the day

You'll see things in a different way

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

Why not think about times to come

And not about the things that you've done

If your life was bad to you

Just think what tomorrow will do

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

All I want is to see you smile

If it takes just a little while

I know you don't believe that it's true

I never meant any harm to you

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

Don't you look back

Don't you look back

Does Billy Joel's Moving Out count?

;) This was the first song that popped into my head.

Perhaps also Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

Then there's that "show some backbone" song by Don Henley & Glen Frey, "Get Over It."

I turn on the tube and what do I see

A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"

They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else

Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves

Victim of this, victim of that

Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it

Get over it

All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit

Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash

But you might feel better if they gave you some cash

The more I think about it, Old Billy was right

Let's kill all the lawyers -- kill 'em tonight

You don't want to work; you want to live like a king

But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it

Get over it

If you don't want to play, then you might as well split

Get over it, get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak

You're makin' the most of your losin' streak

Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain

You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain

You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown

Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down

Complain about the present and blame it on the past

I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Then there's that "show a little backbone" song by Henley & Frey, "Get Over It"

Get over it

Get over it

All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin'a fit

Get over it, get over it

Get over it

Get over it

It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit

Get over it, get over it

Judging by recent cultural and political events, people still don't get it. ???
