The Man Who Can't Be Moved

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?” –The Script, The Man Who Can’t Be Moved


Band rock alternative asal Irlandia yang kini bermarkas di Inggris, The Script, merilis debut studio album mereka dengan self-titled “The Script”, pada tanggal 8 Agustus 2008. Second lead single dari album ini, “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”, dirilis sebagai promotional single pada tanggal 25 Juli 2008 di Irlandia dan pada tanggal 28 Juli 2008 di Inggris. Sebelumnya, pada tanggal 27 Juni 2008, sebuah official music video (MV) dari lagu ini diunggah ke akun resmi situs Youtube milik The Script. MV ini disutradarai oleh Marc Klasfeld.
Bicara kegalauan maka tidak lengkap apabila tidak bicara tentang lagu-lagu The Script. Band ini telah menghasilkan banyak single hits galau yang sukses menjadi lagu kebangsaan bagi mereka yang sedang dilanda patah hati. Salah satunya adalah “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”. This song simply portraits the feeling of a deep broken-hearted man. Selepas orang yang dicintainya pergi meninggalkannya, dia tak akan beranjak dari tempatnya semula, baik secara kiasan maupun harfiah. Selepas perpisahan itu, ia menolak lupa akan segalanya. Ia tak akan bergerak, ia akan terus menunggu. Ia akan tetap di sana hingga orang yang dicintainya  menyadari keberadaannya, dan mungkin berubah pikiran, dan mungkin akan kembali padanya, mendatanginya. “’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 could be. Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we’d meet. And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street. So I’m not moving, I’m not moving.” Ia melakukan semua itu karena satu hal sederhana, ia masih mencintai orang itu.

“The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” diciptakan oleh komposer Andrew Frampton dan Steve Kipner, bekerja sama dengan dua personil The Script, yaitu Danny O’Donoghue dan Mark Sheehan. Lagu ini membawa kesuksesan besar bagi The Script dan berhasil membuat mereka menembus pasar industri musik Eropa dan Amerika Serikat. Bahkan single ini berhasil meraih sertifikat Gold dari Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) berkat hasil penjualan yang menembus angka 500.000 salinan di Amerika Serikat. Indeed, this song is a breakthrough for a broken-hearted song.

People talk about the guy that’s waiting on a girl. There are no holes in his shoes, but a big hole in his world.” –The Script, The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

“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 could be
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we’d meet
And you’ll 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

People talk about the guy that’s waiting on a girl
There are no holes in his shoes, but a big hole in his world

Maybe I’ll get famous as the man who can’t be moved
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

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