The Script – The Man Who Can't Be Moved lyrics
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!

    Reply to additctedtoglam: "I don't believe that are so many guys who can think like that, in nowadays they forget the feelings and they want other things" You are right there aren't many men who are like that. But I am if I were to find someone who I loved more than anything in the universe and she broke up with me. I would do exactly what this guy in the song is singing about. Anyway I love this song it's so nice and it means so much to me.

    Love is something that goes beyond an argument and that is something we are tought from a young age. Love is strong, it makes magic happens and it turns people around. This tells the story of someone who over-believes that.
    Someone who has been involved in a severe break-up and believes she will change her mind, things will get better and thinks of that as an inevitaiblity.
    It's a story of the hope and disappointment of someone riding on the strength of love, even when that love becomes weak, which sometimes happens.

    They say that everythings gonna be okay.
    But it's not. Because even how many times I have to tell myself that I must forget her. Still I cannot how can I moved on when I'm still inlove with her. Damned!
    I know she felt the same why does everything had to be so hard for both of us? Why does she still choose to go rather than to stay? I've never done anything just to ruined our relationship.
    But still she choose to go. It's damned realilty and I admit that it truly hurts me. T_t.

    This gorgeous song has a very deep meaning. I think it means you should never give up on love, and do whatever you can to find that one person. You shouldn't just sit back and hope he/she finds you, you have to act. It might not be a big thing, you could find them walking to the supermarket. This man though, who's waiting for someone very special will do whatever he can. A heartfilled song that has touched me, means you should never give up on love:).

    The song says about a guy who is deeply in love with his ex girlfriend and still hopes that one day, the girl would realize how much she misses him. And no matter how long it takes for him to wait, he's still going to be there waiting and hoping for the day she'd come back in his life.

    I will be very supportive to his aspirations -- even if he'll be with another girl.
    I will just stay right were he has left me so if he's ready to commit with me, he know exactly where to find me.
    For the meantime, while waiting for him to come back, I will make myself a better woman proving I deserve his love.
    I will just be right here, no matter how long it will take because I already know that he's the one I want to spend my whole life with.

    The song is really amazing.
    Its lyrics and its tone mixed and listened by a broken hearted. Wow!
    I think the song talks about a broken hearted man who still loves his ex soo much thinking that if he will be patient enough to wait even if it will take a lifetime, his ex wud realize he's not worth of the pain she had given him.
    And soo he can't move on and he will not do so.

    I have never heard this song. Is it popular? I love the lyrics. It reminds of "Days Go By" by Dirty Vegas. If you watch the music video, it explains that a guy goes and dances on the corner where he first met his true love. She left him. But he thinks that if he dances there everyday, word will get around and she'll come back to him.
    This song just means he's not giving up on love.

    This is such a good song. The Script made an amazing song. It's so good. It really makes me appreciate different types of music. It's not my type but I'm still in love with it. :) Just because I like rap doesn't mean I can't like this too. Because I'm freakin' in love with this song. I listen to it before I go to bed, when I wake up, in the shower, etc. I can't stop listening/singing it. It's so good!

    I finally found out the music title of this! This song is so inspiring. I have met a man and he's very kind to me. Last May 24th 2016, he went to pick me up in my place and he treat me like he already knew me 2-3 years ago. But honestly, we just knew each other on May 11th 2016. We ate together and he held my hand. He took me to his house and made known to his parents. That moments I could hardly express myself. He took me back to my place when it was getting dark. He kissed me. That night, he called me. The following days, I went to look for his Facebook name. I couldn't add him. I told him about this. Then, there was a video of him singing this song. I don't know yet the title. I did hear the same song before. Right now, I'm still listening to his video as if he's the original singer of the song. He loved me so much and I love him too.

    My experience with this song is that it became our theme song together. Like the original music video of the song, I will not move from the place where I first saw him!

    There is a guy, this guy is in love with someone who left her. They were perfect together. I see him listening to this song, a lot. Yes, he is still in love with her. And in know he is not moving. Cause he is the man who can't be moved (as he claims) but I wish he could see me once, once in his lifetime and realize I am so madly and deeply in love with him.
    No I don't want him. I want his happiness, and I wish I could so something for him, get his love back in his life.
    I wish I could make him smile again. I can go to the end of the earth for his one precious smile :,).

    The song is about a guy who recently broke up with her girlfriend. And he is expecting her to come back so he goes to a place where they first met and waits for her. But the people think that the man is a beggar asking for money, and the police is trying to make the man move to another place. The guy explains that he is not poor, he is only broken hearted.

    Danny fell in love with a girl he met at a corner and he wants to see her again but he doesn't know where the girl is so he goes back to the corner with the hope that if the girl misses him she will come back to the corner where they first met. In the meanwhile he decides that he wont move from that corner until he sees her again.

    It means hope, finding the will to go on thinking there is hope, for everyone, like me. I lost the love of my life and I thought I have no more purpose and I was drifting and becoming a pessimist. I can hope he would live be resurrected like in the bible where the dead comes to life. But for me, I will have to wait for our next life, until then, i'll be in the corner where we met, i'll be the same person who loves more than love and life itself. All I can do is hope, that you'll be there too.

    He's still in love with this girl who left him & if she changes her mind about her feelings for him, she'll come back to him & she'll fall for him again. When he says he's not moving from that spot it's saying that he'll wait for her for as long as his feelings for the girl are still there. & the part about the policeman is that there will be people who will come in your life & distract your goal of getting back your true love, but you have to just forget those people if you really care the one you love. "there's no holes in his shoes, but a big hole in his world" means that he still is fine on the outside, but dying on the inside. & when he says that maybe he'll get famous as the man who can't be moved; he's saying that maybe she'll accidentally start thinking about him & go back to that place where they met to remember old times. Then it says that big long part at the end where he keeps saying "i'm not moving" & that means that no matter what, he'll always have feelings for her & he'd go through hell & back for her because that's what love is, caring for someone so much that you'd do anything for them. But that's what this song is about part by part lol.

    This song is like me written down on a paper. I'd gladly burn in hell than not wait for her.
    Fi, if you read this someday, know that you're loved, that no one else.
    Can love you with a hundred lifetimes, as much as I do, with every single.
    Beat of my heart.
    'm not that kinda guy, who'd give up just like that.
    I'll be waiting, a single thought will be all it takes to bring me to you.
    I could reach a million places without you, but not one would be.
    Meaningful, without you by my side.
    All I ask is for a little love.
    Loving you forever,.
    Yours, hub.
    P. S: I miss you.

    She is in the corner of his mind in a dream he keeps having. The sleeping bag represents the fact that dreams are usually when you go to sleep and the street corner represents the corner of his mind where that dream exists. They have never met but he is hoping she has had the dream too. And some day somehow they will meet in reality like if this was real, the cops would be there to charge him with vagarancy. Nice medaphores. Gary priest.

    She says if ever any problem I shall come and stand right at this corner. Where they first saw each other, one day when she was gone, he stays at that place with the hope that she'll come back. He'll be there without any moves even when it rains, snows or whatever. He'll be waiting for her and for her love and a song the man who can't be moved.

    I think that the man who can't be moved is about a broken hearted man who has recently lost a loved one through divorce, marrage or maybe just a break up. He does not realise that she is not coming back but he feels so strong in her love that he is willing to give up his riches (his home) just to wait for eternity for this woman. Also, he is going to stay where they first met because they might of felt the beess and chmstery there.

    I've been in love with my best friend. She loves me too so much but we can't just dating around cz she has had a boyfriend from the past she can't forget yet. We're trapped in our love and I can't just move on. We really are happy together, laughing at everything, at something other won't laugh at. We really become ourselves with no burden in loving each other. We've dug the hole in our heart too deep and it is hard to fill and cover it up. I am just a man who can't be moved, so is she.

    It is about a man mourning over his love, who has gotten over him, so he waits in the conrner of the street where they first met, hoping she would eventually miss him. He doesn't want to miss even a slightly opportunity to meet her as he does not know where she is, so as the lyrics say 'even if it rains or snows ' he will still wait, through it as she is worth waiting.
    People mistake him as a beggar, even if he is not dirty or does not have clothes in his shoes. And he hopes he may get famous in order for her to remember him as she will know it is only directed towards her.

    I have been struggling with my weight for several years, the girl I was with helped me through my insecurities, and made me feel beautiful. Inside and out. She recently broke up with me, after telling me 'you care about food more than me'. As you can tell, I am heartbroken. But I still love her. I will be waiting on the street corner, unable to move. - she used to push me in my wheelchair: '(fml. Where are the pies?

    This song is about a man who is still in love. He is in love with a women who no longer loves him. He is missing her every minute of every day. This man feels lost. He is saying that if she ever starts loving him again, that he will still be there. He is waiting for her where they first met, and if she ever loves him again, that's where she will go. No matter what he'll always love her. His heart will never be moved from her. He is hoping that one day, she'll realize that she is still in love with him.

    It is a beautifully written song about a man who has gone through either a break up or a divorce. He will remain waiting for the girl he loves, no matter how long it will take. He is waiting for her to realize she misses him too and wants to find him. When she does go looking for him, he is in the same spot he has been in. Waiting for her.

    This song is brilliant! I love it! I listen to it every day! I think it is about a busy city in london or manchester, this boy sees a girl and is automatically in love with her, they cross the road to meet but he looses her by running through the crowd, he stays on the exact corner that he first saw her hoping that they will meet again soon. :)

    I think the man who can't be moved is about how he needs closure becuase hes still in love with her and she needs to know so that it comes to the point that she can see what he did for her so when she gets there she can see that shes defo in love with him and it shows how much he loves her beacuse he went back the place that they met awk: '(

    The man who can't be moved is a lovely song and I think that the meaning is that he had a girl friend and she drowned in the sea and his heart was broken and his sad and lonely with out her. He try's to have a new life but he cont because he remembers everything that happened to him.
    I would like to say hi to the script for there wonderful songs your the best.

    Such a meaningful song that lets you be living the moment in the song. About a heart broken man who will never give and will never move on from a previous relationship with a certain girl who he is deeply in love with. Lets people know how he feels and experience the pain he in going through is such a to beautiful song.
    The beauty is shown through the emotional lyrics and gorgeous song.

    It is a beautiful song about a man who can't move on from a girl which he once loved. He doesn't know where she is so goes to the place where they first met, and he will stay there until the day that she comes to that place.
    He doesn't want materialistic things like money, he just wants his girl back in the circle of his arms.
    He hopes that the day will come when she realizes that she wants him to, and if he stays there long enough he will get famous and she will 'come running to that corner'.
    I think that it is a beautiful song that reminds me of my past, that I am still waiting for, even if I know that they aren't coming, I am waiting just in case they change their mind and do.

    A man that just loves this girl. If he moves on hes scared he will miss her. He know that if she just comes back she will find him there, and that he just wants her nothing else and that the world has stopped for him and only she can start it.

    I think the thing about him standing on the corner is kind of symbolic. I don't see him literally standing on the street corner. I see it as him not wanting to move on, still hoping she'll come back, still remaining where he was in life in case she comes back. The part about "people hand me money they don't understand" isn't literally about someone giving him money like a homeless person. I think it means people try to engage him in life but he can't change yet. Like when people break up and say "move on"-- he's not moving on. He's just going to wait. - sab.

    This is about a guy who's hopefully waiting for his girl who left him alone. His unconditional love can make him wait even if it rains or snows, even if it takes a month or a year, and regardless of how people think about in things his doing he'll still be in the place where he thinks his girl will go after realizing that she still love him. One of my favorite sad love song. Thanks to the script=))

    It's about a guy who messed up by leaving his girl. Then he realizes how bad he screwed it up with this girl. So he thinks back, and remembers the first day they met. He decides to go back to the place. Then he gets an idea! He won't move from the place that hes going to the place that they met and then when she gets the same idea as he does they will be reunited. His idea is that she will take him back and hes gonna prove how much he loves that girl by standing there. Its really sweet, but truth is sometimes you don't get another chance even if you deserve it. And sometimes you do get a second chance, blow it again even though you aren't worth the first chance you were given so my advice. Don't mess it up!

    What I think it means is that the guy broke up and he dearly loved the girl. So he hopes that she will relize that one day she will miss him and hoping to see her were they last meet. He's going to stand and show how much and wait and not matter wait. But if ur in a relationship it can mean that your waiting for that person to back to you and hoping that, that person can relize that your there for her and not matter wait he will stay and fight against anything. And when she comes back he'll be waiting at that corner for her.

    The lyrics, the video is very emotional, very touching. The guy misses his girl so much. He is willing to wait on the place where they first met. They had a huge fight or a misunderstanding. He knows she might change her mind one - day or she'll wake up and miss him. This shows no matter what happened between them the guy still loves the girl and he is not moving and he will keep on waiting for her. A true story of any guy or any girl who can't be moved. Top song.

    When I had heard the song it registered in my mind he was a homeless man, or just a wondering man. But when I read the lyrics it seemed more like a guy looking for love, weird sometimes what we are looking could be right in front of us, but yet then again sometimes it is shrouded in the darkness. Well that's my thoughts and opinnions of this song.

    He is in love with this girl and he wants her back so badly he goes to the corner where he first saw her and he camps in his sleeping bag and asks everyone if they seen her and if they did could you tell her where I am. He hope that she will miss him so much that she will search to the ends of the earths to find him. He wants her back so he is not going to move and hopefully she will find him and they will be together again.

    This man aint movin because he was probably hipnotized or possessed or probably insane. There's no such thing as a man that can't be moved. Time heals. There might be sweet memories that you missed so much and makes you feel like you want her/him so bad. But at the end, a normal person who has undergone a complete process of grieving would accept it. But as a summary its just says how deep was the love. I have to go. Grrr.

    It was a very nice song. It makes me cry because it's just like what I'm feeling until now. I'm still in love with a person that I don't even know and the only way to see him again is to go back to the place that we'd meet and wished that he will go back to that place too. I thought that I could find another person like him and feel the same way that I felt that time but I was wrong because until now I keep on coming back to that place and still waiting for him. Maybe I could see him someday or maybe not but he was the only person whom I loved this much so I'm still hoping to see him again. . =')

    Don't loose your faith in this girl. She loves you very much; you're her passion and inspiration in life and the only one she "visions" in fantasies. She did not understand the role you played, when she desired to have you as the "balance", combining both aspects united. She sees clarity in her heart now. Also sees how culture really defines who you'll be, if you apply it. You know, now, 100% where her hearts at, and where it will always be. She's not at the corner today, not b/c she didn't want to be (mmm, did she want to be), but because she woke up this morning and wanted to start clearing the obstacles and be the half of the perfection you deserve. You're her motivation, and inspiration. She will get there; very soon, south. X

    I will be very supportive to his aspirations -- even if he'll be with another girl.
    I will just stay right were he has left me so if he's ready to commit with me, he know exactly where to find me.
    For the meantime, while waiting for him to come back, I will make myself a better woman proving I deserve his love.
    I will just be right here, no matter how long it will take because I am already certain that he's the one I want to spend my whole life with.

    How I interpret this song is that he is just deeply in love with someone. And he just can't let her go. I take it metaphorically, because it is almost impossible for anyone to do that. And that he can't go to her, for any reason. Like he might not know where she is or so. So he's just waiting for her, everyday of his life till she comes back to him. And.

    From the title, the man who can't be moved, the song can be interpreted as about a heartless man but after you listen to the content of the song it is exactly the opposite. The man in the song literally can't be moved because of his deep love for this girl he met before, that is why he's not moving, just waiting for this girl to comeback and find him in the place where they met before.

    One person saw someone he loved and this is the first time he saw the man, but he regretted he had not spoken and in disregard or lose that person is him looking as though it wanted to restore the past and might to be strong inside to tell her his feelings for this person! :)
    Take note that it also happened to me so for me it is the meaning of the song to even though I am woman! I'm inlove to this song! Love it very much :)

    This guy obviously just had a chance encounter with a girl since he doesn't have her no. Or any idea where to look for her. He's just hoping she'll show up where they met. Now if it was along her usual route he'd have seen her already. So I hope he does get on the news else he doesn't have much of a chance. Too obsessive though. He probably won't understand why he did all that once he gets to know her better, lol.

    This song reminds me of a guy I met. Standing on the street corner with his buddies. You know, the cute one. The one that walked me home. The one who slept out on my front lawn,. The one that got away. If you see him, tell him it is the first place I go to when I miss him, and I always miss him. Always. And some day when I go there again, where we met, he will be there too, at least I hope. And I always hope.

    This song shows how far someone will go when they truly love a woman. Maybe that woman wasn't ready for the commitment that the guy wanted, but that doesn't mean that man won't wait for her for as long as he can to give that woman a chance to have that true love from a man who truly loves her. I'll always love you alora and I'm waiting for you because I know that you just need time to grow before you're ready to settle down.

    The man who can't forget her ex for a long time. And he always waits for her girl to come back to him no matter what the situation and condition are. He always waits even all the person can know that he's still waiting for that girl. And he will always waits until the girl come back because he's still so much in love with the girl that he has been waiting for.

    I love this song sooo much. I am the girl who can't be moved because I am waiting for a boy to like me. He knows I like him but he says we should just be mates. I don't wanna be mates, I wanna be an item. It will never happen though so I guess I will be waiting on the corner of the street for long time with a policeman telling me to move! .

    I so love this song. It reminds me of the day when I first met my ex boyfriend he's waiting for me in the corner of our street. That day was so magical how I wish it didn't end soon. Now every time I pass by on that corner. I can still picture him standing there and waiting for me. Just like the first time. I'm still inlove with him.

    To me this song is what love is all about, it may sound pathetic to some to not even be able to function correctly without a person, I heard this song the day I lost her, and I cry everytime I hear it, but I can't stop listening to it because it reminds me of her, and at least in my memories she's mine, it's been a few months am I can't go a day without thinking of her, this song describes how a bunch of people believe they feel, but not many people actually understand the pain that this song represents, if there was any song that should be heard, it's this one, ad if you're reading this Darian, I love you, and if you never want me back, please just do what makes you happy, that's all I've ever wanted for you baby,.
    Ps. I'm not some overdramatic teenage girl, I'm a guy,.

    This song struck me.
    There's this someone that smiled (and tried to know) at me but I just ignored him because I was too innocent at that time, now I know and realized what he's tried to say i'll be "the man who can't be moved" one day. And yes, I'm hoping he is too.
    If we'll be willing to wait for someone, just believe and keep the faith, we'll be with them one day at the right time. =))

    Loyatly inspite of being teared up by the one you love most. The artist still choose to love the person who broke his heart. But in my opinion. As time goes by he'll find a way to moved on. Time can heal everything.: dd.
    But I do love this song. I want to find this guy who can't be moved. I want to prove myself that a guy can still be trusted when they say "i'll wait for you".: dd.

    For me it means the guy really loves the gurl it shows that after breaking up it's not esy to move on! If you really love him/her it's really not easy to move on no matter what you do he/she is the only one you've wanted. Like me! I really loved my ex but I think we can never be together again. And stil up 2 now "i can't be MOVED"

    Love this song, can relate very well, waiting for the person who you love, who makes you happy, to come back to your life, its all really want to be loved and to be with the people we love, but its not always possible so instead people write songs which then make people think about what they want or who they want it also has the affect of making people sad because they can't be with the person they love.

    The man can't move on. He waits day and night for a girl who has clearly abandoned him. He is lost. He has no where to go. She was his home, his familiar place of security; when she left, she took everything.
    I take it to my own personal beliefs that she will never come, he is forever waiting, hoping, and wasting his last breaths on one-sided love, killing himself, losing everything that made him, him. He is no more but desperate.

    I Should Admit that I love the script and I love this song too, but this is their job, to make us imagine that he is so in love with a damn girl that he will wait in the street and camp there. No guy can do this for a girl. And even if he did that and she put on some weight. He will go home. Duh
    and if he saw the cops he will run like a roaming rabbit.
    We should not let the imagination do this 2 the real life. Cuz now gurlz run after guys not vice versa.

    The guy really hopes that the girl will come back for him and it doesn't matter if how many days, months nor years he'll be waiting as long as the girl will come back. So touching. I do hope that you'll gonna wait me baby even though time comes that we're miles apart. Coz I'm hoping that we'll gonna be together someday, and I'm sure that's possible. Please wait for me and I do hope you won't give up on us. I love you baby.

    They say they need better men in this world, but they can't see the one standing in front of them. They say they need more understanding women, but they still don't get that women don't know what they want. They say love hurts, but its because they haven't learnt how to.
    What do I say you ask? Sometimes all one can do is hope, like the way this awesome song does. :)

    Its about a man who can't get his ex out of his head, who he loves with all his heart. So he goes back to this corner and decides hes going to stay there until he finds her and they are reunited. Eventually, police tell him he can't stay where he is but he doesn't listen and he hopes that he'll make the news so he can catch her attention and she'd come running back to him.

    The girl left the man, and the man is trying to find the girl because he know deep inside he's heart they still love each other. The man was looking everywhere. He think that the girl will be foud on the corner of the street that they first meet. The loyal man stands there everyday, waiting for the girl. Everybody notice it that the man who can't be moved was waiting for the girl he loved on the corner of the street where they first meet.

    I love this song. It is a song of loyalty. True love as it may seem. This song is the true meaning of the saying "if you love her set her free". Setting her free but keep on loving her and being there when she realizes that you are her true love. Others may tell that you're stupid for waiting for her even she might not come back but you know inside you that true love waits.

    This song really touched me, and it's happening to me haha. I met a girl I barely knew. As days goes by I fell in love with her. Not expecting in return, I chose to be idle. Got scared of ruining our friendship, then there is a returning guy from and starts courting her, damn, I dunnno what to do,. But I made up my mind to stay beside her and be a beacon to her dark days. Sounds dumb, but I just love that damn girl haha.

    Love might be very complicated at times but it doesn't mean that once you've failed, you should give up that easy. I really agree to this song. It might not that realistically but somehow far it means a lot. It's such an inspiration. Before forgetting someone, spend some time to give that person a chance to comeback again. Who knows, it's just a little misunderstanding. Be considerate at things. Give importance. Before looking forward, try to look back if you missed something precious.
