The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

17 09 2008

There was a time in my life when I sang this song. Hearing it again, sang by someone else – and this time far more fluent – I realize how jaded I was to think that someone can be as strong as I am. Then one day I woke up, and realized that I was the only one strong and all was wishful thinking.

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, but 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 that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be.
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet.
And you’d 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
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows
If she changes her mind, this is the first place she will go

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

People talk about the guy Who’s waiting on a girl… Oohoohwoo.
There are no holes in his shoes, but a big hole in his world… Hmmmm
And maybe I’ll get famous as man who can’t be moved.
And 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. I’m the man who can’t be moved

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

Going back to the corner where I first saw you.
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, no I’m not gonna move
