The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

I can’t stop listening to “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” by The Script. It was featured in the original motion picture soundtrack for “P.S. I Love You” which I also loved. They’re an Irish band that were called MyTown before. Great song, video and band!


The Man Who Can’t Be Moved by THE SCRIPT

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag not 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 im still in love with you…
Cos if one day you wake up and find that your missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’d 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 sit her,
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.
Cos if one day you wake up and find that your missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’d 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
Whos waiting on a girl…
Oohoohwoo
There on no hole in his shoes
But a big hole in his world…
Hmmmm
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…
Cos 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…
Cos if one day you wake up and find that your missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’d come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.
[Repeat in backgroung]
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.

    I want to write a story on this song and I'd of course add to the story, but do I need permission from the band? I don't just want to steel the idea or copy it. What do I do? Help.

    I think that's a great idea… I was tempted to do it myself… a full version if you will of the story… I think you should pursue it if it inspires you enough. Books and movies are always influenced and inspired by other medium and works… I don't think it's plagiarism to write a long form story with a similar plot. Of course, the best thing to do is to try to reach the band's management to see what they think. Maybe they'll even allow you to use the song as the theme for the movie and use its title?
    Keep me posted.
