Artist: Lily Allen
Song: Somewhere Only We Know
Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need someone 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?
‘Cause this could be the end of everything,
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?
This song has been a favorite of mine for years. The original is by Keane, but this version, by another favorite artist of mine, is brilliant. Often, I like to check the BBC’s Top 40, and while in London, I decided to do just that. Over the years, the songs are quite similar to what’s out in the States, but every once in a while, I find a gem I wish we had. This time, this is the gem.
