The song I chose is titled "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane, from their album Hopes and Fears released in 2004. The song has been used in multiple tv shows and children's movies as background music such as Grey's Anatomy and a Winnie the Pooh trailer.
The song is the narrator talking about needing to return to a familiar place to find a sense of comfort because something in their life, if not their own life is ending, and he asks his audience (likely one person) to go with him:
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?
He also says even though everything has changed, even the place he goes to for comfort, he still loves it just the same:
Is this the place we used to love? / Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?
He also talks about how he is no longer in the prime of his life anymore and needs a source of stability, but he is having trouble finding it:
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
The song follows a sonnet rhyme scheme rhyming with (AABB CCDD). Throughout the poem, the narrator personifies their place of comfort, and the serenity they are chasing:
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 came across a fallen tree / I felt the branches of it looking at me
The narrator also uses simile and rhetorical questions throughout the song.
