"In a Different Place" as written by Andy Bell, Lawrence Colbert, Mark Gardener and Steve Queralt....
Blowing bubbles, lying down
Waiting for the rain to fall
Laughing at the people
Wonder why they always rush, never slow down

And we're smiling, when we're sleeping
And we're smiling, when we're waking

Even if the rain falls down, and all the sky turns cold
I will feel fine
Thunder roared and lightning flashed
But you and I are in a different time

Floating in and out of time
In and out of space
No-one can touch us
We're in a different space

    General CommentDoes make sense that it can be about drugs, but hey, I'm not too sure, do all rock artists have to write about drugs all the time ?

    General CommentOur experiences shape our interpretations. Most people who thinks songs are about drugs use drugs themselves.

    General CommentI think it's a pure expression of the euphoria of young love. To me it evokes an image of a couple on a hot, summers day, just lazing around in each other's company while everyone else rushes about like headless chickens. The euphoria is such that even when the skies break and the rain comes in, their euphoria is strong enough to withhold it. And yes, maybe it has druggy connotations too, but I don't think you need to invoke that response.

    And to Catroar: I agree with the lyric as listed, I think it's 'We're smiling as we're waking.' I imagine them dozing on a hot, languid day. It captures that mood perfectly - when you're half-in-reality and half-in-the-dreamword. A wonderful swoon of a song.

    General CommentI mean, it perfectly describes a feeling of euphoria. By the way , I think the line "And we're smiling, when we're waking" would be walking instead of waking.

    General Commentdefinitely not about drugs but i think pt was implying that the song has a drug-like effect or can produce a similar feeling in the mind like other songs of theirs.
