Somewhere Only We Know
Keane Lyrics


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 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?
So why don't we go?

Ahh
Ohh

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

"I'm getting old and I need something to rely on".
I'm not even old, I'm 27. But I can relate to these lyrics so much. I'm tired of fighting my adhd, anxiety, depression every single day. Mental health struggles are absolutely exhausting and make you feel older than you are.
This is my number one comfort song. It allows me to just relax for 4 minutes when my mind is racing and I can't sleep.
I just can't explain how much this song means to me...

*Edit: I feel truly humbled and grateful. I have received so many heartfelt replies to my comment, they have touched my life in ways I could never explain ❤️❤️ ❤️

I do have to say: many have reached out to me , opening up about their own Mental health struggles. And I know that individuals who suspect that they are suffering from a mental illness, such as ADHD, depression, anxiety or autism, are afraid of how society judges them.
If you believe that today's society DOESN'T judge individuals who are outside the "social norm",
You are sadly mistaken.

So : if YOU believe that you are suffering from a mental disorder:
1.) I am SO proud of you for recognizing it.
2.) I will ALWAYS be here to listen and comfort you.
3.) I truly hope that you will find the courage to confide in the people closest to you, in order to get the help you need and deserve.
4) There are SO many people ready to help you.
5) I keep coming back, reading every comment. And I will keep every one of your comments in my heart, I never expected this but to know that kind, compassionate human beings care about me will continue to fill my heart with gratitude and joy.
I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.
My most sincere wish is for every person who sees this comment to THRIVE. To live happily ever after.
❤️

Thank you for this song. I came from an abusive family, by my Dad. My Mother was dying in ICU when this song was popular and came on the radio. I had always hoped I would have the time to get to know her. I always planned in my heart that my Dad would be the one to die first, but it wasn't happening and I just wished we could run away somewhere and get the chance to know each other before she died. Comfort of life, having your parents alive to rely on seems like such a simple thing, but when it's gone a part if you dies too. Be sure to use the time you have left to tell those you love how you feel about them.

This is the song that makes you want to run outside at night, lay on the grass, look up at the sky, staring at the stars. Simply beautiful.
