"Emotion In Motion" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
I would do anything
To hold on to you
That's just about anything
Until you pull through
I'd hold on to you
'Til the stars no longer wink
I'd hold on to you
'Til you figure out
Just what to think
'Cause

[Chorus]
You're emotion in motion
My magical potion
You're emotion in motion
To me

I would go anywhere
To meet up with you
That's just about anywhere
For one rendezvous

I'd hold on to you
'Til the mountains crumble flat
I'd hold on to you
Until you figure out

Just where you're at
'Cause

[Chorus]

I would do anything
To hold on to you
That's just about anything
That you want me to

I'd hold on to you
Until you take it all in stride
I'd hold on to you
'Til you want to stay here

By my side
'Cause

[Chorus: x2]

(You're emotion in motion)
Emotion in motion
You're emotion in motion
To me

    General CommentI don't know why, but this song reminds me of my little dog and I sing it to her sometimes. :)
    But seriously, this song is about unrequited (at first!) love; he adores her enough to wait for her to come around. It's beautiful, touching, and so very melodic.

    General CommentAbsolutely. He's head over heels and waits patiently, hoping that she just might feel the same. We never know if she does, but we certainly hope it all the same!

    I've always loved the gentle beat, almost waltz-like, with the strangest sense of mystic happiness. I've loved this song for years, and always delight in it coming on the radio.

    I understand about singing to a cherished pet. -small laugh- I had a darling little leopard gecko named Sara (short for "Serandipity") and wouldn't you know, Jefferson Starship's "Sara" always popped into my head. It was true though; she was with me for seven years, and no time was a good time for good bye ...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that @SugarFreeShelia and @mindhuntress are correct. The music is too uplifting for my following theory. If you look at the lyrics it could readily be someone proclaiming their love for someone who is dying. There is nothing the singer wouldn't do if he thought it would make her better.
