Movement - Hozier




The Experience: Move me... When you desperately want someone to be part of who you are...


Music video: Hozier, alone, flees from different versions of himself, alternately fascinated and terrified by them, until there's nowhere left to go. At first intriguing and finally nightmarish, the video portrays a frustrated world where you're truly alone. No muse. And no love.

The Meaning of Movement: Hozier sings to the woman who carries his world on their shoulders - Atlas. Their actions - movement - move him to sadness - grey skies - to joy - paradise bird - and to surprise - an odd sight come out at night. She is partly mystery - I still watch you... as if through water from the bottom of the pool. She can't help but affect his life - you're movin' without movin' and when you move I'm moved. And he wants her to move him, wants her to constantly influence his life. That's trust, and in the end, that's love. Move me, baby

Ask yourself: Do you trust others enough to let them touch and mold who you are?

LYRICS:


I still watch you when you're groovin'
As if through water from the bottom of a pool
You're movin' without movin'
And when you move, I'm moved
You are a call to motion
There all of you a verb in perfect view
Like Jonah on the ocean
When you move, I'm moved

When you move
I'm put to mind of all that I wanna be
When you move
I could never define all that you are to me

So move me, baby
Shake like the bough of a willow tree
You do it naturally
Move me, baby

You are the rite of movement
Its reasonin' made lucid and cool
I know it's no improvement
When you move, I move
You're less Polunin leapin'
Or Fred Astaire in sequins
Honey, you, you're Atlas in his sleepin'
And when you move, I'm moved

When you move
I can recall somethin' that's gone from me
When you move
Honey, I'm put in awe of somethin' so flawed and free

So move me, baby
Shake like the bough of a willow tree
You do it naturally
Move me, baby
So move me, baby
Like you've nothin' left to prove
And nothin' to lose
Move me, baby

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh baby, oh baby
Move like grey skies
Move like a bird of paradise
Move like an odd sight come out at night

Move me, baby
Shake like the bough of a willow tree
You do it naturally
Move me, baby
So move me, baby
Like you've nothin' left to lose
And nothin' to prove
Move me, baby
So move me, baby
Shake like the bough of a willow tree
You do it naturally
Move me, baby
