"Don't Move" as written by and Butch Walker....
Good morning sunlight,
as I get used to you
its all gonna be alright,
I did all I can do
and as I'm waiting for those eyes,
to say what's on your mind,
I finally think I've found the words to say

so baby don't move at all,
cause you're about to break my fall
stay where you are, staring at the stars
don't ever move at all

so many black and white,
are made to be so blue
we've all got our wars to fight,
but I won't fight with you
if I could just get your attention,
I'd never let it go
until you've felt what I am gonna say

so baby don't move at all,
cause you're about to break my fall
stay where you are, staring at the stars
don't ever move at all

oh, why's it gotta be that everybody's gotta see the sadness everybody's lonely, we don't have to be lonely baby, no baby oh, i can move you like an earthquake, listen to me as my hands shake cause I want you, I need you, I can't live without you baby

baby don't move at all
cause you're about to break my fall
stay where you are, staring at the stars
don't ever move at all

    General CommentAnd as I'm waiting for those eyes
    To say what's on your mind
    I finally think I've found the words to say

    One of the best opening lines of any song ever.

    General CommentWoW this is the best butch's song! i just can say that is just beautiful, awsom! amazing! i got no words to describe it
    "So many black and white are made to be so blue
    We've all go our wars to fight, but I won't fight with you

    General CommentTo me, this song is clearly about a girl that is hesitant to enter a relationship due to her past involvements. By "staring at the stars" it is suggested that she already has plans and ambitions in life ahead of her, and she may not necessarily need or want a relationship at this point in her life. He doesn't want to fight with her about it, because is more than likely a selfless guy that would rather hurt himself than cause harm to her. Even though she doesn't want a relationship, they both know deep down that she truly isn't the rock hard person that's always happy on the outside. Her eyes hint that something else is deep inside of her. He tells her he loves her in so many words, but tells her not to move because he'd rather not complicate things. Just like the song "Joan" the beginning of the song is a foreshadowing to the conclusion/climax of the song. The guy has done all he can do, so now he waits for the girl to say what's on her mind and figure out what they should do from here.

    The music matches the mood of the song perfectly, and I love love love Butch's falsetto coming out of the bridge on the line "about to break my fall."

    General CommentOk... straight from Butch himself... this is a song about going away. It's his last night with his girl before he has to go (to where, i'm not sure) but it's about just wanting to stay there forever, forget about any problems they have, and just be together because she means the world to him. There!

    General CommentYeah I kind of picture this after a night when he hooked up with this girl he's liked for a while. He's really starting to fall for her but he's not sure how she feels so he's hoping she'll stay.
