The Script: The Man Who Can't Be Moved Lyrics

Updated on April 9, 2016

The Man Who Can't Be Moved Song Lyrics

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.

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.

[Repeat in background]

So I'm not moving...

I'm not moving.

I'm not moving...

I'm not moving.

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,

Gonna camp in my sleeping bag not I'm not gonna move

The Script - released August 2008 (RCA Label Group)

If you have not heard of The Script, shame on you! This soul trio hailing from Dublin has been making waves lately with their hit singles "We Cry" and "The Man Who Can't Be Moved." Comprising of former boybanders (anybody remember MyTown?) Mark Sheehan and Danny O'Donoghue, and session musician, Glen Power, this threesome is backed by a solid era of substantial production work and writing, for R&B production moguls like Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes) and Teddy Riley (Blackstreet), before coming together as The Script.

Let's start with the merits. O'Donoghue's vocals are a pleasurably unique aural experience. It is rough without being raspy, and smooth without being silky. When that meets Sheehan's tangy guitar commentaries and Power's funky percussion, the end result is a compelling soul/R&B/pop-rock effort. Simple melodies are married to relatable lyrics, and this guarantees that track after track is a surefire, radio-friendly hit. Demonstrating the influence of their R&B production days, you'll also find some semi-rapped vocals, surprisingly articulate and suited to the rap style, and groovy drumworks. This all contributes to a rhythmic pop melodiousness, with some anthemic rock appeal.

Alas, The Script also goes for 'safe' in their debut effort, and doesn't vary their formula much. An interesting exception would be "Rusty Halo," an uptempo (a first in the entire work), rock number that'll leave you bouncing to the beat. Other than that, the album plays across a flat plane, with no big leaps, but no huge letdowns either. Some might even go so far as to call it bland. The lyrics are somewhat trite, with a moody, melancholic strain throughout, undeniably heartfelt, which perhaps helps it along in the soul factor. Many of the songs bear a tired, repeated theme: love lost ("If You See Kay," "Break Even") or love enduring ("The Man Who Can't Be Moved," "Talk You Down," "Before The Worst").

Debut single "We Cry" is a commendable effort at a social commentary, with a deep, piteous yearning. But that said, it's not covering new ground lyrics-wise. "Fall For Anything" sounds like it came right out of a Maroon 5 album, vocals and all. The album closes with "I'm Yours," a sappy-but-not-sacharrine ballad, which proves a fitting finale with its sweet and dreamily haunting guitar strains. Kudos for that!

All in all, this is still a Script worth listening to. For a while, at least.
