Allen, Lily - Somewhere Only We Know Lyrics

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 tired and I need someone to rely on

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

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?
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?
Somewhere only we know?

    All John Lewis’ adverts are very special and well made but I believe this one is the most beautifully made and definitely took the most time, precision, dedication and teamwork.

    Yes and I'm crying all ways makes me cry this song

  28. wilson lawson

    I adored this kind of animation when I was young and I still love it to this day. But I hate that it's being used to advertise for a huge store whose management is dedicated to maximising sales and inducing people to spend as much as possible in their store. In the end it's all about extracting money from people. So I make a point of not buying anything from John Lewis. : ) But thanks to the animators and Keane for writing such a great song.

  29. Francoise El mahi

  65. zakshei

    You can tell when a company really cares when they go through all of this for a short and low paid ad.

  66. zakshei

    Honestly, this cover isn't better, neither is it worse than the original. I genuinally feel the same energy when listening to this and the original, this is the type of music I want sometimes.

  67. Jonathan Lara

    To me, this will always be the best John Lewis ad. Gorgeous story, writing, and beautiful combination of 2D and stop-motion animation. It's a bloody masterpiece.

    Nice channel

  86. Sardrellas

    I hate this video.
    I'm an animator myself and this song and this animation are some of the best I've ever seen. I admire there people who made this so much, but this song breaks my heart. I watched it with my best friend and the love of my life when it was first released and we were completely enchanted, but last year, in the middle of my planning to propose, she decided her life was better without me. I was crushed. I wanted to die, and the feeling is still strong a year later. I feel like the bear in this video; honestly tired and grumpy. I'm not mean, I'm just exhausted. I generally try to interact positively, but sometimes I just can't.
    Getting a present out of nowhere on my birthday this month brought me to tears though, and it shed some light on the importance of kindness in the world. I desperately needed some kind of kindness in my life, and I didn't ask for it, but I was blessed with it. As a result, I feel like I know the best way to fix my hate for this video:
    I hate this video because I love this video and it reminds me about the way I feel.
    I hate myself because I love someone who hates me now.
    I had something incredible and simple with her and now it's soiled. Henceforth, "of simple thing, where have you gone?"
    So far though, an act of selflessness and kindness helped to break my self destructive mental cycle, and I couldn't be happier about it.
    I don't hate this video.
    I hate the fact that I can't enjoy my simple love for it the same way I used to.
    Kindness helps a lot though.

    Think about someone you normally wouldn't think about. Give someone something - anything - entirely for them; an item, an experience, a letter, anything. You have no idea how much power you can have over someone who may feel like living life is the hardest option for themselves right now.

    I love this video.

  87. Serena Stavrou

    This song helped me feel comfortable when I had just started high school I graduate next year and I guess I’m back for that same comfort haha :)

  88. Cezinhainconcert Concert

    Muito bom chorei com isso , é um filme se for me passa o nome quero assistir.

  89. Andy Powell

    My dear wife saw this advert and said it reminded her of the two of us. When she found out the Bear and Hare could be purchased as cuddly toys, she reserved the last two and bade me that we drive forty miles that day just to pick them up. Three months later she collapsed and died in my arms. I still have the Bear and the Hare...

    Mam Jallow

    I'm so sorry
