Know This And Keep On Moving


People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

Whatever it is that you claim to believe,
And...
Whatever it is that you claim to receive from beliefs,
Keep that feeling in your heart.
To keep it always near you and never far.
Since everyday something or someone will test you.
And everyday the faith you keep will pull you through,
Everytime you decide to face the truth.

Everyday something or someone will test you.
And everyday don't be afraid to face the truth,
Since...
People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.
No...
People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

Whatever it is that you claim to believe,
And...
Whatever it is that you claim to receive from beliefs,
Just know...
People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.
People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

Since everyday something or someone will test you.
And everyday the faith you keep will pull you through,
Everytime you follow and you face the truth.
No matter what you choose or decide to do.
Everyday something or someone will test you.
And everyday don't be afraid to face the truth,
No matter what you choose or decide to do.

People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

People do not love,
The people they deceive.
Know this and keep on moving.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
