Line(s) of the Day #SomewhereOnlyWeKnow


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

Taken from the song Somewhere Only We know by East Sussex band Keane, from their debut studio album Hopes and Fears (2004). Originally a UK top 3 hit, it was later covered by Lily Allen, who topped the charts in 2014. I also really recommend Everybody’s Changing, from the band’s same album.

    • I think it was released during Christmas, as part of a big advertising campaign with John Lewis which would have helped. I prefer the original too. I was listening to them last night. Nice to see how popular they are here too.

    • Yeah, the first album is my favourite. So many gems on there, including Bedshaped and Your Eyes Open. The second one was more more solid than spectacular, except for Is it Any Wonder. That was superb.

  1. How funny. I had picked out Everybody’s Changing for my blog post on the same day, but changed it when I saw your Keane post. Oh and I’ll second Casey and Andrew. You definitely keep your blog fresh, like your mouth. Haha

  2. I am listening to it since 2004, if you believe it. UK radio – I don’t even remember what channel, every – I suppose – was pretty much in love with it at the time, wasn’t it? A great song, it is still an unbeatable classic for me. I remember I was listening to it and to Coldplay’s Fix You on and off.
