Some people are physically unable,
sometimes the sound roots you to the spot,
for whatever reason, you put your cards down on the table
and recognise the music is too hot.

This doesn’t mean at all that you’ve stopped dancing,
it’s all just happening out of sight –
your mind is flying with the high notes
and crawling on the floor when basses bite.

It’s a wonderful sensation
to be able to travel through the stars
or wander on the bottom of the ocean
or burn rubber in the fastest cars, ..

.. to make love right there out in the open
with your lover or one you wished was yours,
to dance like a gymnast or a dope then
slide down walls and hammer on the doors.

There’s nothing in your imagination
music can’t release and energise –
it can unify each and every nation,
get the lame to walk and the dead to rise.

So don’t worry if you find yourself immobile
while others still are moving to the beat,
enjoy that engagement all the while
the rhythms are still coming through your feet.
