Because It Moves Me

i don't know what to do with these hands of mine
it looks like i've got twenty fingers
way they're shaking all the time
i am a child, i know that always
but i'm a daughter, and that i constantly forget
i've got a head that's like a bomb
threatening to detonate
and a heart that pumps as well as any other
but still aches
i'm in love with an unforeseen version
of a person i've already met
and i am humbled and afraid of all the things that i know that i don't know yet

they say work hard
they say play
they say work hard
they say play
but they think hard work is a montage from a movie
and i keep playin the same song because it moves me

sometimes i feel the way i light the room
and it's warm as any sun but shines like only can the moon
yet for all that i can be
i am more when i can see how bad he wants to be my fool
and i'm learning to get over feeling small
yeah, most people when they meet me now
they treat me really tall
yet for all that i may be
i am nothing so quickly when he don't call
and i am humbled and afraid to break a thing i have never touched at all

they say love hard
they say don't stay
they say love hard
but don't give it all away
but they think true love is a montage from a movie
and i keep sticking to this man cuz he still moves me

i don't know if i've missed the point by now
if the winds i've kept at bay have finally blown my house right down
i put all my energy towards saving one thing
to watch everything else drown
but there's got to be a fire that burns above
even with my shaking hands i can still grasp that kind of love
it is safe and it is real
it's the kind that makes you feel forever young
and i am humbled and afraid that i won't know it
when i finally shows up

they say work hard
they say play
they say love hard
then run away
and maybe life is just a montage from a movie
but i'll keep repeating the same song
long as it moves me
