Keane – Somewhere only we know (album: Hopes and Fears 2004)

This song is by Keane. It is such a magical song, I love it and I never get tired of it. I know it’s quite mushy but it’s worth listening to.
For me this song is about the special experiences that I share with my Hubby. My favourite thing is when my Hubby and I make music together; He plays the guitar or composes music on his computer. Sometimes I sing and he plays along, sometimes we even record it and it is such a fun process. A few times we’ve played the guitar together, he taught me how to play the rhythm and then he joined in with a solo part. We do get moments of perfect harmony until I ruin it with my luck of concentration issues! It is so magical sharing this passion for music together. It definitely feels like “somewhere only we know…” check out this wonderful song…

Lyrics: Somewhere only we know Lyrics

What’s this song about?

Richard Hughes, Keane's drummer, offered the following explanation of the song on Chris Flynn's fansite:

We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time… (Wikipedia – Somewhere only we know)
