The Man Who Can't Be Moved

by The Script

"The Man Who Can't Be Moved" music video by The Script

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
saying, "If you see this girl can you tell her where I am"

Some try to hand me money, they don't understand
I'm not broke, I'm just a broken-hearted man
I know it makes no sense, what else can I do
How can I move on when I'm still in love with you

Cos if one day you wake up and find you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street
So I'm not moving, I'm not moving

Policeman says, "Son you can't stay here"
I said, "There's someone I'm waiting for, if it's a day, a month, a year"
Got to stand my ground even if it rains or snows
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go

People talk about the guy that's waiting on a girl
There are no holes in his shoes but a big hole in his world

Maybe I'll get famous as the man who can't be moved
Maybe you won't mean to but you'll see me on the news
And you'll come running to the corner
Cos you'll know it's just for you
I'm the man who can't be moved

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move

It is ironic that I would choose this song considering I moved to my new home on this very day. I probably chose to post this song because I find it really catchy and it has been in my head in recent times.

All living things move. It is a living process. To be moved emotionally however is a different thing altogether. Moving physically would probably not be a problem except for the physically impaired but it's much harder when it comes to emotions. You can move a person by means of physical force but to move that person's emotions would be next to impossible.

That, I believe, is what this song is trying to portray. It is not that he doesn't want to move physically, he's just waiting for the one person that is able move him emotionally. However lame that may sound, that is a very beautiful and powerful thing indeed.
