lyrics

Motionless
© 2005 Jef Knight

Your tender heart beats silently
In time with hopes eternal drum
Will you get to dance to it
Like lovers in a high school gym
Before they turn the lights on?

Or will your first and final step
Lead you on to heavens gate
Will you always be the pawn
When life could be a lover's song
It just seems such a cryin' shame

That you stand there
Motionless
Afraid to move at all
Till you come runnin' back
To me

Come on and have a drink on me
Sit down and ease your troubled mind
Yesterday was always yours
Young enough to have no cares
Old enough to do the time

So take a moment now
Pondering your heart's desire
Till the love that you once knew
And the pain you're going though
Turns you silence into fire

CHORUS

You used to think the race was won
By the swift, the smart, the strong
Some hearts are like a starters gun
In a race that you don't be-long

So take a moment now
Pondering your heart's desire
Till the pain you're going through
And the love that you once know
Turns your silence into fire

Just don't you stand there
Motionless
Afraid to move at all
Till you come runnin' back
To me
