Somewhere
Within Temptation Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Lost in the darkness, hoping for a sign
Instead there is only silence
Can't you hear my screams?
Never stop hoping
Need to know where you are
But one thing is for sure
You're always in my heart
I'll find you somewhere
I'll keep on trying until my dying day
I just need to know whatever has happened
The truth will free my soul

Lost in the darkness, try to find your way home
I want to embrace you and never let you go
Almost hope you're in heaven
so no one can hurt your soul
Living in agony cause I just do not know
Where you are

I'll find you somewhere
I'll keep on trying until my dying day
I just need to know whatever has happened
The truth will free my soul

Wherever you are, I won't stop searching
Whatever it takes, I need to know

I'll find you somewhere
I'll keep on trying until my dying day




I just need to know whatever has happened
The truth will free my soul

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Within Temptation's song "Somewhere" convey a sense of desperation and longing for a lost loved one. The singer is lost in darkness and feels like there is only silence around them. They scream out, hoping for a sign or some sort of response, but nothing seems to come. The chorus reveals that the person they are searching for is always in their heart and they will continue trying to find them until their dying day. The singer is in agony, not knowing where their loved one is, and hopes that they may be in heaven where no one can hurt their soul.


The overall message of this song is one of hope and persistence. Even in the darkest of times, the singer refuses to give up on finding their lost loved one. They understand that the truth may not be easy to bear, but it is necessary for their own spiritual freedom. The lyrics also touch on the idea that love transcends death, as the person they are searching for is said to be always in their heart.


One interesting fact about this song is that it was released as a single in 2004, but was later included on the band's 2007 album, "The Heart of Everything." Another fact is that the music video for "Somewhere" was shot in a castle in Poland and features lead singer Sharon den Adel wearing a beautiful gown and walking through various scenic locations. The song was also performed live on the band's 2014 "Hydra World Tour."
