Movin'
Gregory Porter Lyrics


I feel just like a kite
But one without a string
One that is floating around
I don't know what tomorrow with bring
I feel just like a bird
But one without a home
One that is floating

Full of endless oceans empty horizons no rest in sight
What does it mean when you say you want to be free
Free to sing, free to dance, free to let someone take a glance,
in a world that's free of me
Then you say, then you say, you're moving on

Then you say, I've got other plans (Oh girl no)
You movin' in the wrong direction, moving in the wrong direction (yeah)
Movin' in the wrong direction, so far away from me
You're moving in the wrong direct, moving in the wrong direction(yeah)
Moving in the wrong direction, so far away from me
Then you say, you're moving on
Then you say, you've got other plans (oh girl)

You're moving in the wrong direction, movin in the wrong direction
Lady you're moving in the wrong direction, so far away from me
I wish my momma was here a strong, strong steady rose
She would know what do, what to say, how to pray
To make things better

What does it mean, when you say you want to be free
Free sing, free to dance, free to let someone take a glance
In a world that's free of me

You're movin' in the wrong direction, moving in the wrong direction
And you're moving in the wrong direction so far away from me
Girl you're movin',well you're movin',well your movin', well you're moving away
So far away, so far away from me (Oh)

Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving
Well your moving ooh
Far away from me

This is my favourite song from the album.

I bought this album as an American living in China, and listened to it more than I had listened to any CD before. My favorite is "Movin' in the Wrong Direction."

Thank God for the healing power of music. I don’t know where I’d be without it!

JIAYI SONG

I was listening to his album Liquid Spirit on a mountain hiking trip around Peak District in UK. I was playing this song on the speaker and my friends saying it's an amazing song, but it's not helping that it kept saying "we are movin' to the wrong direction". hahaha, what a fun memory.

Heard this song in a restaurant last night, googled the lyrics and now I'm listening to it non-stop :)
