Moving

Album: The Kick Inside (1978)
  • Moving stranger does it really matter?
    As long as you're not afraid to feel
    Touch me, hold me, how my open arms ache
    Try to fall for me

    How I'm moved, how you move me
    With your beauty's potency
    You give me life, please don't let me go
    You crush the lily in my soul

    Moving liquid, yes, you are just as water
    You flow around all that comes in your way
    Don't think it over, it always takes you over
    And sets your spirit dancing

    How I'm moved, how you move me
    With your beauty's potency
    You give me life, please don't let me go (please don't let me go)
    You give me life, please don't let me go (please don't let me go)
    Oh, you give me life, please don't let me go
    You crush the lily in my soul

  • Jeffrey from Rosemead, CaYes Mr Overveen, I agree. I had Nirvana's debut as the best until I finally heard this one for the first time in 2011. It moved me...
  • Sandra from Durham, United KingdomI took this album from my sister when I was 8 years old. I'm now 40 and I still listen to it and love it.
  • Erick Overveen from Amsterdam, NetherlandsI think this is what heaven must look & sound like. The opening track from by far the greatest 'DEBUT' album in the history of popular music. Anyone agree ?

  • Ivan from Dallas, TxIt's a great song. I first heard it in 1978 in HongKong. I especially like her piano playing and the drumming. I bought the album (vinyl) "The Kick Inside" too, and it's fantastic.
