Song of the Week: “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane


When I heard that Disney was making a new Winnie the Pooh movie based off of (and in the same style as) the classic videos from my childhood, I was intrigued.  When I heard the song that accompanied the trailer, I forgot about the movie altogether.  “Somewhere Only We Know” reminds me of some of Seabird’s songs with its poetic lyrics, and piano-driven, mellow tone.  An unbelievably relaxing, catchy, even poignant song, perfect for grey evenings like this one.  Enjoy the song, and check out the Winnie the Pooh trailer here if you want a heavy dose of nostalgia (I highly recommend it – it looks like a great movie).

Here’s the link: “Somewhere Only We Know”

And here are the 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?

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

  1. Hey Tim, I vote that if this comes out during the summer, we meet halfway and watch it somewhere. Because that trailer looks fantastic. The song is pretty great, too.
