"The Man Who Can't Be Moved" as written by Daniel John O'donoghue, Mark Anthony Sheehan, Andrew Marcus Frampton and Stephen Alan Kipner....
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

'Cause 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.

'Cause 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

There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world

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
'Cause 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

'Cause 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

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag not I'm not gonna move.

    General CommentI know some people might not agree with me, but whenever I listen to these lyrics, and especially when I watch the film clip, this song means to me about the feeling you get after your true love leaves you or breaks up with you.

    The lyrics saying that "IF one day you wake and find that your missing me....MAYBE you'll come back to the place where we'd meet...So I'm not moving." show me that he's desperately wishing she'd come back. He's hoping she'll be back so he's is grasping for straws and hoping for anything.

    IF and MAYBE show that he's just trying to have faith in something that won't happen.

    My InterpretationWhen I first listened to this song, this is what came to my mind.
    A boy who's been in love with his best friend forever. Like he loves her and he will wait for her to realize they're perfect together. He loves her so much he doesn't mind how long it takes her to love him back.
    That's my opinion, but it may be 'cause something similar is happening to me. He tells me that everytime.

    General Comment"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
    what else can i do
    and how can i move on
    when I'm still in love with you"

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, the lyrics "If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go" is the bit that chokes me up.
    I love the story that this man is so willing to get this woman back that he'll wait for her "if it's a day, a month, a year" because he doesn't know where she is to find her himself, he thinks if she wants him back, she'll know where to go. It's absoultely beautiful. :)

    General Commentalright I think I know exactly what he is saying...

    I'm actually going through a similar experience at this very moment..

    What he means is that he's been in love with this girl forever and she doesn't see him in that way. He's going to wait for her, however long it takes because he's in love with her and he refuses to stop.

    General Commentin this song a person is going crazy in love having a fresh love.. it could be second chance a person asking for
    but i would prefer when a person is telling her that he gonna be there no matter what happen , ow many pain and how many disaster goes on..how many heartbreak are going to be there he'll be there no matter what other thinks.. maybe one day she'll realize he the one.. <3
    i love this song that i could cry..
