Simon & Garfunkel - Somewhere They Can't Find Me Lyrics




I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me asleep with the night.
Her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,
Fly down the highway,
Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
Somewhere they can't find me.

Oh baby, you don't know what I've done,
I've committed a crime, I've broken the law.
While you were here sleeping and just dreaming of me,
I held up and robbed a liquor store.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,
Fly down the highway,
Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
Somewhere they can't find me.

Oh my life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,
A scene badly written in which I must play.
And thought it puts me up tight to leave you,
I know it's not right to leave you,
When morning is just a few hours away.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,
Fly down the highway,
Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
Somewhere they can't find me.

Simon & Garfunkel Somewhere They Can't Find Me Comments
  1. Mer rick

    WTF Is this? I've needed heard this, very surreal with the lyrics omg I just cannot get over this.

    At first I thought this was some crazy amazing edit or a cover that was reworked.

    Either way, I love it. It's Amazing!!!

  2. grzegorz koks

    Green Day Hitchin Ride sounds reaaaaally familiar

  3. Dimples

    I love the leitmotif to Anji at the beginning. Reminds me of how Strawberry Fields Forever is referenced in Glass Onion

  4. anom pard

    BASS ARE SIMILAR HIT THE ROAD JACK

  5. Howling Wolf

    This is one bad song I'm a black female love this song it should be be in the history books of rock roll

  6. Sam Labo

    This couldn't be more perfect,,, for the day

  7. Norfolk Enchants

    Is this S&G's worst song?

  8. Caitlyn Cherro

    Hearing this song without Anji afterwards is like hearing Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage" without being immediately followed by "Eclipse".

  9. Sameoldfitup 2008

    "It is not those who can inflict the most, but those that can suffer the most who will conquer."

  10. J A

    I hear rock n roll

  11. colby kramer

    I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,
    As she lies here beside me asleep with the night.
    Her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,
    Reflecting the flow of the winter moonlight.

    But I've got to creep down the alley way,
    Fly down the highway,
    Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
    Somewhere they can't find me.

    Oh baby, you don't know what I've done,
    I've committed a crime, I've broken the law.
    While you were here sleeping and just dreaming of me,
    I held up and robbed a liquor store.

    But I've got to creep down the alley way,
    Fly down the highway,
    Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
    Somewhere they can't find me.

    Oh my life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,
    A scene badly written in which I must play.
    And thought it puts me up tight to leave you,
    I know it's not right to leave you,
    When morning is just a few hours away.

    But I've got to creep down the alley way,
    Fly down the highway,
    Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
    Somewhere they can't find me.

  12. popbottle

    Paul, Paul, Paul.........

  13. PAULA COOK

    I've heard too.

  14. MustangGaming

    The guitar in the beginning sounds like Anji

  15. Griffin Pilcher

    Same intro as anji

    Mike Williams

    Griffin Pilcher Wow! You must be the first person to notice that.

  16. Jack Fulton

    Amazing artist Paul Simon is, but likely with permission, note for note a Bert Jansch guitar lick https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqjUWJtH88c

  17. popbottle

    move on, chameleon

  18. George Doty-Williams

    I still prefer Wednesday Morning 3 AM

  19. Groovy Bear

    Some Beatles vibe here !

    judalee tee

    I noticed that too!

  20. jaygensn1

    very similar to Wednesday morning 3 AM.  Even a lot of the lyrics are the same but a more upbeat melody.  But I love it anyway.

    Edward Joseph

    It is the same song done in a different tone....

  21. Deed Sievering

    Um yeah, one of the early best of S&G <3

  22. matthew Scharf

    it's like "Wednesday Morning, 3am" is set just after he robbed the store, and the character is just laying there trying to decide if it really happened; then enter "Somewhere they can't find me": when the dude panics and starts to pack up to run, trying to explain what's going on.

  23. mike jeropke

    didn't rob a liquor store but ended up stealing a dress

  24. Cortney Erinn

    My childhood was in the 90s. my grandma would bump this song on the car radio while she drove me to school. I used to think this was the Beatles lol.

    Historyczne Reja

    Cortney Erinn me too, first time i Heard that i thought iT is from rolling stones

    Carrie-Anne R.

    @Historyczne Reja no offense but how does this sound like The Rolling Stones

  25. Scott Nevison

    i really love this song...

  26. Brian Gallagher

    I still can't picture Paul robbing a liquor store. Maybe removing a tag from a mattress, but that's it. 8)

    Emma O

    I can't picture either of them doing that, to be honest... XD

    James V.

    I can imagine them robbing fools for black tar

    Spos Kanal

    I can't picture either of them doing that, though I can somehow picture them doing it together. xD

    Willie Gordon

    First time hearing this, I love it.

    William Kershner

    ... with Art standin' behind him, like the muscle, y'know...? I can see it...

  27. Brian Gallagher

    I still can't picture Paul jackin' up a liquor store.

    Sam Labo

    It was art Garfunkel for sure..look at that album cover, it was art

  28. Kimbra Holbrook

    Loved this song since I was 8 years old!

  29. Discocoma ?

    Well I think it sounds like it

  30. Discocoma ?

    Yea it's called hit the road jack

  31. humanotwoleg

    i cant find me whoever that is

  32. Gregory L'Esperance

    this one takes you somewhere they can't find me....

  33. Now_hereGirl

    I looooooooooove

  34. hyethga

    Would it sound strange to say that the first time I heard this song was in a Soviet film made back in the 1960s?

    SiliconBong

    Wouldn't surprise me :)

    Carol Martin

    @SiliconBong Capitalist idiot.

  35. GoldenIron Studious

    Song rocks people!!! But guess what, theres more to it. Look up Wednesday morning 3 a.m.  by Simon and Garfunkel, its the same story. Still good song.

  36. Geoff Miller

    I love this song. I bought this LP when it first came out. It's a wonder I didn't wear it out I played it so much. Great to be able to listen to all these old favourites on YouTube.

  37. Eoin

    Had only heard Wednesday Morning 3AM until I clicked on this, interesting..

    Crocshank

    Eoin I like how it's almost like the opposite of Wednesday Morning 3AM. Almost as if in that, he accepts what he did, but in this he tries to hide and get away.

  38. Cherish G

    I've heard the bassline before. I think a band after them might have had a similar bassline or either someone sampled it. Can anyone help me?

    samuel cagle

    Davey graham - Angi

    psychoprosthetic

    Very common chord progression. Very similar to, for instance, Hit The Road Jack.

    MrBmoore9

    Most likely by them in 1963 under another title Wednesday morning at 3 am

    Herr Doktor von Nuremberg

    This was the main bassline used in their cover of Angie. Not to mention this kind of bassline is commonplace in older music.

    Harry Cooke

    elvis rocha yeah ill agree 😊

  39. Jorrit Aalvink

    It has the same lyrics as Wednesday morning, 3 A.M.!

  40. Phoebe Kitcher

    p-cackk!!

  41. Bob Loblaw

    It's hard to find music like this nowadays. Great song.

  42. nick wright

    Please listen to the song;
    New York Boogie the writers.
    Thanks.

  43. don quijote de granada

    "wednesday morning 3 am" lyrics and "anji" melody... AWESOME!

  44. johnmillercpainc

    I agree. This song is amazing!

  45. Rhiannon Collins

    This is absolutely my favorite song By Simon and Garfunklel, there is just something about it that is so magical!!

  46. TheScarletIbisNW

    Love this song!!!!

  47. onlinelondon

    Fabulous song, and lyrics....the use of modulation this way tells about composers with big C.... F Major to D......suspension not easy, but here at ease.......

  48. Katie Luo

    This song is awesome!!

  49. JimmyJohnson123

    No 1 driving song.

  50. Paulina Kamińska

    I'm your mom XD

  51. sebastian montoya

    the first simon and garfunkel album was pretty good but the second album is a masterpiece nuff said

  52. DawnRainWasHere

    My mom loves the "Creep down the alley way" part,lol.

  53. kylecrazyford
