"Rock My Body" as written by and Tom Oakes Robert Ragan....
Go, you move we go, now don’t go,
You move we don’t, now go,
Now don’t you move, we won’t go, now don’t go, go,
I thought the way that she moved meant the way that she tasted,
I could rip the seams right through her lips,
A captivating experience that left me here,
With antoxicating kiss,
But tonight, I’m setting all my memories aside,

So why don’t we trace the footsteps back into our past with the ones we’ve lost?
Too many bad mistakes were made,
No one should have to take the fall for it, when it’s our life to live,

Go, you move we go, now don’t go,
You move we don’t, now go,
Now don’t you move, we won’t go, now don’t go, go,
Found out the way that he moved,
Found out the way that he tasted,
Then he ripped the seams right from her lips,
Never thinking the first time that they met, would be the last she saw of him,

Is glamour an issue? A balancing reason?
Are we all waiting to destroy,
The things in life we are made of?
A blessing we're tasting,
And come so fond to recreate,
I can feel the expansion, resembling patterns,
Disguising everything, and what we have to relate,
And it's all for this one dance,

So why don’t we trace the footsteps back into our past, with the ones we’ve lost?
Too many bad mistakes were made,
No one should have to take the fall for it, when it’s our life to live

I am watching over you from the stars,
Don’t be scared, I know exactly where you are,
Cause there’s a piece of me and it’s burning in your heart,
Even death could never tear us apart,

    General Commenthow are there so few comments? this song is excellent.
    'Go, you move we go, now don’t go,
    You move we don’t, now go,
    Now don’t you move, we won’t go, now don’t go, go'
    i love how he says that. its pretty much senseless.. but its fun to sing along to.
    i love the line 'no one should have to take a fall for it, when its our life to live'
    thats exactly how i feel.

    General Commentumm im not 100% sure but i think it's a guy saying a girl rocks his body? a bit hard to tell but that could be it..deep_in_static..i agree. half of the comments on this whole site are about ppl who say they like/dislike the song. we don't care, we want to know what the song means, at least thats what i (and deep_in_static, by the looks of it) come here for. oh and by the way my songmeaning was tongue in cheek...

    He is watching her & protecting her even though he's gone. Like a gaurdian angel, basically.

    Woah.
    Much love to The Higher

    It seems like it revolves around a dance, or his last moments, but at that moment he as well as a girl had a feeling for each other he knew this would be his last moments though and realizes that life's problems seems obsolete if you love someone but he's gone now but he still loves her.

    General CommentHas Any1 here heard the New Album Version... It's subtley different, but you can really tell...

    This song is about having that fleeting love, if only for a moment...
