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'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 could be
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you 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, oh whoa
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
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 could be
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we meet
Oh, you see me waiting for you on a corner of the street

So I'm not moving
('Cause if one day you wake up, find that you're missing me)
I'm not moving
(And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be)
I'm not moving
(Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet)
I'm not moving
(Oh, you see me waiting for you on a corner of the street)

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

    i agree with keitherzzz(sorry if i didn't spell it right) but this song is soo inspirational. it's prooving to us that no matter what happens in between a realationship even though you are not together doesn't mean that you're heart is giving up. it's moving. no it's not. this song is stating that you're heart is never gonna move. it's gonna stay in it's place and be happy. i love this song,i truly do. and this is coming from a 10 year old girl. never lose you're faith! if you loose something special,don't blame yourself. try to make it right. sorry if this sounded weird i couldn't think of anything to say. that would help you guys understand this song. i know what i said was dumb,please forgive me i am only ten. but i hope it helped some of you people. i know it was dumb so just give me a thumbs down. i know alot of people will give it to me anyways. hope i helped!

    Great song! A beautiful lady, that I barely knew,came into my life on New years Eve 2008. Within weeks,I knew that I was in love with this lady. Fourteen months later, after she again told me that she loved me, she deleted me from her life. I have wrote letters, cards, poems and lyrics for a song (about her) and I still can't get her out of my mind! Someday, I hope she realizes that although I am no prize, that I am a good honest man who loves her very much! Here I stand, waiting!
