This song may vary in meaning from person to person. Whether it’s a geographical space, feelings or whatever it is that this song represents to you, I believe that most of us can relate to this song.

To me, this song represents a dream. A dream that perhaps the narrator of the song shared with someone else. The lines “I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand” mean that the narrator of the song have had the dream for so long that he’s so familiar with it and he already knew it by heart.

I think the line “I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin” says that the narrator is tired of ‘running in circles’ and he wanted to start working on the dream.

I find this song nostalgic and sad. I think the narrator and the other person didn’t make it to their dream or perhaps their dream had already expired on them. This may not be the real meaning of the song though.

Will be posting the lyrics below. Sit back, press play and sing along 🙂

Somewhere only we know

by: Keane

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need someone to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go? Somewhere only we know

Oh, this could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
