Carpenters, The - (A Place To) Hideaway Lyrics




I've got to find a place to hideaway
Far from the shadows of my mind
Sunlight and laughter, love ever after
For how I long to find a place to hideaway

I hear you whisper and I must obey,
Blindly follow where you'll be
Knowing tomorrow brings only sorrow
Where can I go to find a place to hideaway

Bright colored pinwheels go round in my head
I run through the mist of the wine

(*) The night and the music remind me instead
The world once was mine
I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
But where can I buy another you?
Dreams are for sleeping
Love is for weeping
Oh, how I long to find a place to hideaway

Repeat (*)

  15. Steve Abbott

    Good Lord! What a voice!

  16. only1utdanditsleeds

    She could have Sung the phone book and it would have been an instant classic

  17. The OED Loves Me Not

    Eternally lovely goddess Karen. The whole world is yours. As one of your billions of servants, I bow to you, hitting my head to the ground numerous times like Chinese did to their emperor.

  18. Steve Abbott

    Good Gawd! How good can one person be? 😮

  19. Sting

    The voice of which all models will be made but will never match.

  20. The OED Loves Me Not

    The whole world, together with the birds on the trees and the stars in the sky, is crying for you, weeping over you, mourning and missing you, our beloved, most extraordinarily adorable angel Karen. You were, and still are, the most beautiful girl in the entire world.

  21. Randall Sundeen

    For a few short years an angel came down from heaven to relieve us from our self made misery with a beautiful song over 35 years after she left she still sounds new perfect and incredible!!!

  22. Aguinaldo Rodrigues dos Santos

    Karen Carpenters cantava muito bem,a voz dela era magnífica.

  23. Teresita Crisostomo

    She sings so beautiful, so clear!
    Miss you Karen!

  24. Maurise Grant

    What a chilling and beautiful song by the carpenters sang immaculately by karen carpenter

  25. Coupydog

    Did she ever realize how totally amazing she was? Vocals, rythym, stage presence, honesty, soul... I am floored!

  26. cathy smith

    I've got to find a place to hideaway
    Far from the shadows of my mind
    Sunlight and laughter, love ever after
    Oh how I long to find a place to hide away
    I hear you whisper and I must obey
    Blindly I follow where you lead
    Knowing tomorrow, brings only sorrow
    Where can I go to find a place to hide away?
    Bright coloured pinwheels go round in my head
    I run through the mist of the wine
    But night and the music remind me instead
    The world once was mine
    I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
    But where can I buy another you?
    Dreams are for sleeping, love is for weeping
    For how I long to find a place to hide away
    But night and the music remind me instead
    The world once was mine
    I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
    But where can I buy another you?
    Dreams are for sleeping, love is for weeping
    For how I long to find a place to hide away

  27. Timmy Morgan

    Somewhere in
    A fairy tale forest lies one
    Answer that is waiting to be heard.
    The seasons stumbled round
    Our drifting lives are bound
    To a falling crescent noon.

  28. hersheypark

    love you karen

  29. Kevin Follows

    Beautiful.

  30. Uganda Knuckles Gaming

    her voice is like a lullaby

    Denise J

    Listen to Karen singing Crystal Lullaby from Carpenters' album A Song for You, it's gorgeous!

  31. Klaus Karnath

    once again ..a new Carpenters Song that i never hear....very new for me....

  32. R. D.

    😢 💓 but where can we buy another you?

  33. cathy smith

    I've got to find a place to hideaway
    Far from the shadows of my mind
    Sunlight and laughter, love ever after
    Oh how I long to find a place to hide away
    I hear you whisper and I must obey
    Blindly I follow where you lead
    Knowing tomorrow, brings only sorrow
    Where can I go to find a place to hide away?
    Bright coloured pinwheels go round in my head
    I run through the mist of the wine
    But night and the music remind me instead
    The world once was mine
    I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
    But where can I buy another you?
    Dreams are for sleeping, love is for weeping
    For how I long to find a place to hide away
    But night and the music remind me instead
    The world once was mine
    I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
    But where can I buy another you?
    Dreams are for sleeping, love is for weeping
    For how I long to find a place to hide away

    I sang from my soul like her

  41. angelluvies town

    Liked the song. Especially when it comes to the end. I love it. One of my favorite Carpenters song😊😊

  42. Bru Schmidt

    Love how her singing literally "floats" over the orchestration like a rare, fine instrument. She becomes "one" with the song. Just brilliant!

  43. Damien Burke

    How did she know how to sing like this you sing from your soul am

    Damien Burke

    What is inside you your heart and soul

  44. Damien Burke

    I hope everyone knows No one will ever come close

  45. LILIBETH SARMIENTO

    Me and my daughter loved the way Karen sang it. She said it was very good especially the end. Also, she said Karen is her favorite singer

  46. *SUPERSTAR LEGEND TRIBUTES*

    Tearssssssssssssssssssss

  47. jean pierre bressler

    La voix de Karen est tout simplement exceptionnelle et elle l'utilise à la perfection ..du grand Art

  48. Rubber Soul

    When i was 18 years of age listening to AC/DC, Karen's voice struck me like a lightning bolt.

  49. john cole

    The most unique voice the world has ever known.

  50. Valmir da Silva

    my favorite song from Ihe Carpenters

  51. Richard Rocchio

    "I'll save my pennies for a rainy day but where can I buy another you"
    Love those lyrics! Love her voice. She left us much to soon.
    Karen and Richard made such beautiful music.
    Will be married 45 years on September 29 and I dedicate this song to my wife Rosemary.

  52. Damien Burke

    She sang everthing she felt like I did it comes from inside

    Damien Burke

    When she sang she sang for you

    Damien Burke

    No singer has that today

  53. Damien Burke

    Listen too this Pure beauty no one can touch this

  54. esther estrada

    jamás he escuchado una voz tan armoniosa , dulce ,  perfecta como la de Karen , lamentablemente jamás habrá otra igual ....un  ángel cantando , deleitándonos con su hermosa voz .GRACIAS KAREN , i love you forever and ever......

  55. L R5

    Such a shame they were before my time.

    Denise J

    Great songs, beautifully performed, are timeless.

  56. Marg Canada

    Beautiful!!!!!!!

  57. john cole

    Simply put......."UNTOUCHABLE"

  58. oona holt

    THERES SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY SHE SINGS THAT SONG i can't even exsplane it i almost brings tears to my eyesits so great love it

  59. john cole

    know, unlike us mere mortals, thanks to these awesome videos and KC's unique talent she will always be with us. We wont ever let her go.

  60. KS CA

    I still terribly miss her. Her voice how she made you feel. She was one of a kind. She gives your heart peace.

  61. jean pierre bressler

    Karen a la voix la plus pure de la varièté américaine

  62. Philip Corrigan

    Beautiful song. Carpenters music lives on. Now in my playlist on YouTube July 2018.

  63. Bru Schmidt

    She set the bar so high. U must look up "Eve" by Carpenters, recorded at age 18-19 & this was B4 "Close To You" hit. No coaching or training & sung behind the drum kit. Her talent will never be equaled in our lifetime.

  64. Timmy Morgan

    I still can't believe she's gone. What a cruel hoax life plays on us all, time and again.

  65. tuber gal

    Time to revisit an old friend, her AND the song. Sigh.

  66. Cameron Butler

    0:13-0:24 is my favorite part of the song. What instrument is played? It definitely does not sound like the violin

  67. Bru Schmidt

    One of the most beautiful songs ever, performed by the exquisite Karen Carpenter. Her voice was like magic & watching her was entrancing. Dear Karen, there's never been another like you. Some good attempts, but not very close :(

  68. ignacio montesdeoca hormiga

    no me canso de escucharla.

  69. oxford panama

    Magic,,,, refined, powerful with sophistication. Timeless. David from Panama.

  70. john cole

    Every time I her a new song by KC I think "this is the perfect song for her". Then when I hear the next one I think "this is the perfect song for her". And on and on and on.

  71. Thomas Timlin

    Real talent, no over the top opera or auto tune. She did not have to do choreography and twerking and all that bullshit to be noticed. When a new song came on the radio you instantly knew it was her. Incredible percussionist too. Beautiful tone and warmth, phrasing and control. Karen does not get in the way of the song, but becomes the song.Just brilliant. Poor Karen, a gift to music, and she paid a terrible price to share it all with us. If she were alive it would not have changed a thing about her stature in music. No one wanted or expected to lose her so soon.

  72. Graham Brooks

    Such an under-rated Carpenters song. One of my favourites.

  73. Janete Batista Santos

    Para chorar!! Música maravilhosa!!

  74. Bru Schmidt

    At age 20-21 when this was recorded, most of her tracks were done in one-take & she never faultered. I'm dumbfounded.

  75. Bill Parthum

    Though the comments here are old, the beauty of her voice never ages. She brings us back to where we were in time, and holds us there for minutes or hours or longer. Her music is our place to hideaway. Thank you Karen and Richard.

  76. chad ewing

    woops,...that should be "rotten musical taste"".

  77. chad ewing

    You're kidding! 16 ppl have rotten musical tste!

  78. chad ewing

    I think it was the second or third cut on side 2.

  79. chad ewing

    If I remember correctly, this song was on side 2 of their 'Close to You' album.

  80. Brad Bradley

    my all time favorite song

  81. Eva Russell

    I really love that outfit she's wearing. At the same time, it is really sad that she wore a lot of those winter clothing to hide her anorexia. She was such an amazing singer with a phenominal voice. Hopefully, I will get to meet her in heaven one day when my time comes. Rest in peace, Karen Carpenter. <3

    Coupydog

    Yes. 1970-71 was her best years overall. Simple, yet 100% Karen. Afterwards, her looks, given hairstyles by "professionals" & health went South. Within those next 10 years, she appeared to have aged 30 years. Tragic.

  82. tomrely

    Still fabulous. Gee, what a voice..Gone way too soon.

  83. Grace Berger Marry to William Berger

    Love this song

  84. Cynthia Lyman

    l love her beyond words: the musical magic she created in her too brief life astonishes me to this day.

  85. Diane Raider

    underrated song. most beautiful voice ever.nobody is even close in my opinion. RIP beautiful lady.

  86. Saulo antonio Alves

    Karen was bast singer of all times

  87. Josh Lapuz

    Sooo relaxing! Her music will live eternally. I guess those 14 dislikes were justine bieber fans.

  88. Rony Bar

    Show. Adorável...

  89. Tiger J

    With Karen's voice, she puts magic in every song she sings.

  90. Khoa Do

    This should have been a big hit like yesterday once more...

    Denise J

    Yesterday Once More and this are my two absolute favourites of many, many wonderful Carpenters recordings.

  91. Brad Bradley

    crying everytime I hear this song

    The OED Loves Me Not

    You have a truly beautiful heart, Brad Bradley.

  92. Filósofo rvg

    Maravillosa canción y poco conocida. Karen vuelve del cielo para escuchar otra vez tu voz mágica y catártica.

    Simon Reyes

    Filósofo rvg exanto

  93. Fred Zihooley Wazitsoo

    Best voice ever. In my opinion. Sad she left so soon.

  94. Ann Sanders

    I love these two.?..her voice is so soft and pleasing.....I got to share The Carpenters with my 12 year old. Madison love them also. It is so wonderful my child loves them too.

  95. Damien Burke

    Never hear a voice like this ever again

  96. Jerry Siskin

    Karen your voice is my place to hideaway! To hear you sing is such a beautiful thing. When I get to heaven, asking to see you perform, and feel your on a puffy wispy cloud will complete my bucket list, see ya soon.

  97. Damien Burke

    She was the most perfect singer sent chills down my spine you will not hear a voice like this again

    Anthony Seopardi

    Spoken true words voice of an angel. God so loved this beautiful angels heavenly voice he called her home again. God gave Karen to us briefly to bring us a little happiness to our world but she had to go home to heaven and left us a little happier but broken hearted too we miss and love you Karen for always

  98. Casparus Kruger

    great chord at :24.  100 points for anyone who can tell me what chord that is.

    Coupydog

    ....we give up. What chord is it? 🙋
