Somewhere Only We Know

I shudder every time I hear this song. I can say that it’s one of my favorites, not only because of the music but also because the lyrics are so full of meaning. I love it when they say: ‘ Oh simplest thing , where have you gone , I’m getting old and I need something to rely on ‘… This is so true, as we grow older, we tend to complicate things and become unable to see the magic we used to find in simple places, in simple things… ‘Somewhere Only We Know’… Enjoy it!

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?

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?

Ah-ah-ah

This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

Thanks for the video Ana!

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold ………………. or hide …………… the light.

I hate to turn …………..  out of the …………….. uninvited
But I couldn’t stay ………………, I couldn’t fight it.

I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Can you understand the lyrics? Then try to hear the song with subtitles so you can check what you did and didn’t understand.

Where is the Love?

At this moment of crisis and human provoked disasters (unemployment, lack of confidence in governments, money troubles, student riots, uprisings against dictators, wars, deaths…) together with natural disasters (as we have recently seen in Japan) I have remembered the song “Where is the Love” from the group Black Eyed Peas and I have felt the need to express myself and say that we must stop thinking of ourselves and think about all of us as a whole, because as the song says: ‘we’ve only got one world’.  And I would like to raise my voice and make governments and powerful people become aware of what Gandhi said once: ‘there is enough on Earth for everybody’s need, but not for everyone’s greed’. Or as I have recently read: “the world’s 225 richest people have a combined wealth of over 1 million million dollars. Only four per cent of this wealth (40 billion dollars) would be enough for basic education and healthcare, adequate food and safe water and sanitation for all the world’s people”… Incredible, isn’t it?

The pity is that since this song was released things have not improved much. But let’s keep our chins up and hope we’ll become a bit more human.

“Where Is The Love?”
What’s wrong with the world, mama
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA, the big CIA fightin’
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

It just ain’t the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations droppin’ bombs
Chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones
With ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin’ wrong
In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover
The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where’s the love, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the truth, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the love, y’all

Chorus

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us followin’ our wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo’, whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
Now ask yourself

Where is the love? (x4)

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love?

Sing wit me y’all:
One world, one world (We only got)
One world, one world (That’s all we got)
One world, one world
And something’s wrong wit it
Something’s wrong wit it
Something’s wrong wit the wo-wo-world, yeah
We only got (One world, one world)
That’s all we got (One world, one world)
