  • I would do anything
    To hold on to you
    That's just about anything
    Until you pull through
    I'd hold on to you
    'Til the stars no longer wink
    I'd hold on to you
    'Til you figure out
    Just what to think
    'Cause

    [Chorus]
    You're emotion in motion
    My magical potion
    You're emotion in motion
    To me

    I would go anywhere
    To meet up with you
    That's just about anywhere
    For one rendezvous

    I'd hold on to you
    'Til the mountains crumble flat
    I'd hold on to you
    Until you figure out

    Just where you're at
    'Cause

    [Chorus]

    I would do anything
    To hold on to you
    That's just about anything
    That you want me to

    I'd hold on to you
    Until you take it all in stride
    I'd hold on to you
    'Til you want to stay here

    By my side
    'Cause

    [Chorus: x2]

    (You're emotion in motion)
    Emotion in motion
    You're emotion in motion

  • Mark from Ventura County, CaliforniaJust to get things straight, Ric, played Guitar, on this album but Steve Stevens also played rhythm guitar. What most dont know , is that Steve Stevens actually played rhythm guitar on " Emotion in Motion", despite what was listed as credits, and also Benjamin Orr, was on background vocals, but was edited just before the song was released with added on background vocals, that was none credited! How do i know this? I was there!
  • Eliseu from Canoas, BrazilThis song features Roland Orzabal on guitar.
  • Steve from Trumbull, CtOcasek was not the bass player in The Cars - he was rhythm guitar. Ben Orr was the bass player and both shared lead vocals.
