Our Bodies Move aka FOR THOSE WHO WAIT”    (c) 12/1987

 

          Lyrics Michael Kennedy

 

Music by Ric Ahlers

 

 

So many people look for love and affection

Think they’re heading in the right direction.

They go searching through the heat of the night

Alone again in the morning light.

 

I’ve seen a lot of selfish devotion

Hopelessly lost in mixed up emotion.

Opening; then closing every door

Never know what they’re looking for.

 

CHORUS:    I’ve never felt a woman feel this good before.

I’ve never listened to her whispers

Or knock upon the door.

Nothing to hide, nothing to prove,

Its love that makes our bodies move.

 

In the beginning there were many pretenders

Holding on ‘til everyone surrenders.

Strangling the love they create.

Love is For Those Who Wait.

 

CHORUS:    I’ve never felt a man feel this good before.

I’ve never listened to his whispers

Or knock upon the door.

Nothing to hide, nothing to prove,

Its love that makes our bodies move.

      I am glad you appreciate them. They seem to reflect a lot of relationships I see out there. But when you find the right person….. there is nothing like it!

        Exactly my friend a true relationship, is a lot like words, like poetry in motion,
        if it dosn’t flow
        It’s got no where to go

        Very good! Great observation. To quote a friend of mine, “Simply beautiful – or is it beautifully simple?”. I understand what you mean, and thank you for the comment.

      Great observation. I think that is why I thought the music would fit the lyrics. The music uses chords you don’t usually hear in country tunes but they are so smooth most people don’t notice. Good catch!

      I have a saying….. If you think paradise is a place, you will never find it. Most people have no idea what “it” is. And it is usually right in front of them. You are my kind of people, Dan.
