Somewhere Only We Know Lyrics By Keane
And if you have a minute why don't we goTalk about it somewhere only we know?This could be the end of everythingSo why don't we goSomewhere only we know?(Somewhere only we know)
Somewhere Only We Know Lyrics by Keane
Though there's nothing in the lyrics that directly alludes to the members of Keane getting high (maybe except for a liberal interpretation of "I felt the earth beneath my feet"), it's nice to know that one of the 00's biggest singles is about the members of Keane getting high. Listen to it below.
This song is about a connection, to somebody or somewhere, whoever and wherever, that may be.For me, it tells me about my mum, who I lost several years ago. I've mourned, and come through the grief. I'm happy and settled, and I have happy memories of my mum, but I miss her dearly.The song takes me back to the simple little things we did, and the simple places that we went. The parks, the rivers, the trees.I as grow old, I want those things so much more. I want my mum back, just for a minute, I want her to let me in. I want to show her my kids, I want to tell her what I've done.Why don't we go, somewhere only we know.
Somewhere... That's Manswer's Shaw, Battle, East Sussex.Why? That's the place the band used to play everyday when they were young. That's the spot where King Harold II died during the Battle of Hastings in the 14th of October, 1066.The "river" flows from the hill where the battle took place.However, they're not talking about the battle but about the destruction people has made to that place. It's somewhere only they know because that place they used to know no longer exists but in their minds. The spirit on the video represents the fallen trees through the years. It's basically a song against those destroying nature around the world.
This song is very touching to me. It sorta makes me emotional, in a good way, I guess. It makes me picture two people, hand-in-hand, sitting on one of the branches of a pear tree. The tree is on a hill, which looks over a huge field, with perfect-shade-of-green grass. The two people look out at a gorgeous sunset. The sky fades from a light blue to an orange and then to a yellow. They watch the golden-orange sun fade behind the horizon. They don't say anything, because they already know that they'll be there forever. But something changes, and they used to be best friends, but then they rarely see each other. But they still miss each other. From this, the song makes me think that it is about two people who were extremely close, and had their own special "spot", just for the them. It was a place where they felt a sense of security. They felt content serene. It could be the end of everything, for all we know, and they wouldn't care. They were fine just where they were. But time seems to fade, and the memories were forgotten. Don't get me wrong - I don't mean that they grew apart and went their seperate ways. I just mean that life rushed by, and changes were made without anyone actually thinking about the consequences. They grow older, yet miss what once was. It was a special spot for them. They couldn't exactly explain the feeling that their "spot" gave them, it was just "right". One of them comes across the place they used to hang out, and begins to wonder where it all went wrong. But he/she wants to fix it. The person wants to talk it out with the other person, just so they can relive those memories. Like the song says, "If you have a minute, why don't we go somewhere only we know...?"
Personally, I think this song it about two friends who found a special place to call their own. As the two get older (the singer and the other person), one of the friends moves on and tries to forget about the place. The singer on the other hand, is looking back on the place and starts remembering every detail 'I knew the pathway like the back of my hand'The singer asks if the friend would like to join him again 'And if you have a minute why don't we go talk about it somewhere only we know'. The singer finds it hard to rely on anyone because they were the only person he trusted.
This reminds me of my friend who is a girl and me (who is a boy). We were best friends and when we got to middle school we had till stop being friends or else people will start a rumor about us. When the song says, "somewhere only we know" I think of a place where me and my best friend can still be friends without gossip getting in the way. 041b061a72
