"Moving" as written by and Kate Bush....
Moving stranger does it really matter?
As long as you're not afraid to feel
Touch me, hold me, how my open arms ache
Try to fall for me

How I'm moved, how you move me
With your beauty's potency
You give me life, please don't let me go
You crush the lily in my soul

Moving liquid, yes, you are just as water
You flow around all that comes in your way
Don't think it over, it always takes you over
And sets your spirit dancing

How I'm moved, how you move me
With your beauty's potency
You give me life, please don't let me go (please don't let me go)
You give me life, please don't let me go (please don't let me go)
Oh, you give me life, please don't let me go
You crush the lily in my soul
Soul

    General CommentThe reason why a whale song is included here, according to Wikipedia: "In an interview with the magazine Sounds, Bush commented, "Whales say everything about 'moving'. It's huge and beautiful, intelligent, soft inside a tough body. It weighs a ton and yet it's so light it floats. It's the whole thing about human communication—'moving liquid, yet you are just as water'—what the Chinese say about being the cup the water moves in to. The whales are pure movement and pure sound, calling for something, so lonely and sad ..."

    General CommentI looked it up. You must be talking about Lindsay Kemp:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    This is a beautiful song. But why whale song? And, I wonder, why "you crush the lily in my soul"?
