Daniella Violet Bryce Lily Allen-Somewhere Only We Know (Original by Keane) Furthermore the place being described sounds to be a forest as the nouns 'land', 'pathway', 'earth', 'river' etc all have the connotations of a woodland setting. This could be helpful when choosing the setting of the music video as if it were to be filmed in a forest the video would connect with the lyrics. The song is in first person. This makes the song seem a lot more personal to the listener. Also using first person can make put emphasis on the context of the lyrics and so encourages the listener to come up with their own perception of the lyrics. The line "This could be the end of everything" is used twice in the song and both times doesn't rhyme with the adjacent rhyming. This singles out the quote and puts emphasis on its meaning. Ultimately it has no place in the song but one could perceive it as the reality behind the song as this all may be imagination 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 There are two verses before the main chorus that appear to be describing the place that is the subject of the song. This not only creates context but also allows the reader to use their imagination to visualise the place being described. 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? Overall the song's lyrics has many connotations of different locations, emotions and context. Having looked into these it will help me decide on the final settings for the production of the music video and the overall context/storyline of the video. The emotions conveyed will also help me in choreographing the emotions conveyed by my artist though the video. Throughout the song the lyrics appear to be talking about someone and a particular place. This combined with the first person also makes the song personal as the listener can relate to their own experiences and people they know. Throughout the song there is the use of end rhymes. Which is typically used not only in songs but also in poetry. This gives the song an overall older feel as this technique makes the verses of the song flow and interlock with each other.
