  • Blue eyed dressed for every situation
    Moving through the doorway of a nation
    Pick me up and shake the doubt
    Baby I can't do without

    Move out, don't mess around
    Move out, you bring me down
    Move out, how you get about
    Don't make a sound just move out

    I remember only for an hour
    Move right through me can you feel the power
    I don't know what's going on
    It scares me but it won't be long

    Move out, don't mess around
    Move out, you bring me down
    Move out, how you get about
    Don't make a sound just move out

    Now he's in control he is my lover
    Nations stand against him he's your brother
    Been a long time, been a long time now
    I'll get to you somehow

    Move out, don't mess around
    Move out, you bring me down
    Move out, how you get about
    Don't make a sound just move out

    Move out, don't mess around
    Move out, you bring me down
    Move out, how you get about
    Don't make a sound just move outWriter/s: Alison Moyet, Vince Clarke

  • Victor Ulloa from Costa RicaAbout the meaning of the song: I like to know if there any biblical references. The paragraph "Nations stand against him, he's your brother" look suspiciously similar to certain Daniel's books references.
  • Steve from Whittier, CaSurprised that no one left a comment in. This became one of the most longest running hits on US radio, ironically never charting above #73! The unique riff and vocal by Alison Moyet would be one of the most memorable things about it.3/31/2013
