It's just a place where you can hide away and find a way
You can recover from whatever you have done wrong
You'll never be discovered, never have to show yourself
And you can hide till whatever time you want to
Because we go away and never know why
You can get discovered and never find yourself
And you've got to go and never know why
And you can hide for the rest of your life

You can hide away and never be discovered
And you can find a way before you have to go away
And now when I for now I have to
And you can never stop and never go away from
No matter what you do, no matter what you do

It's just a place where you can hide away and find a way
No matter what you say and what you do you'll never

    General Commentno actually i think she's talking about getting "discovered" as in, getting onto a major record label. she says "you can get discovered and never find yourself" she's talking about people who sell out or don't actually like to play music, they just do it for the money.

    General Commenti think she's talking about an oasis somewhere.

    Even though this is really mature, I love the kiddy qualities of:

    'And you can hide till whatever time you want to'

    smoosh are great!

    General CommentYeah, she was 11-12ish when she wrote this (released when she was 12 and her sister, the drummer, was 10). I agree whole heartedly with jellypop's assessment, Especially considering the indie roots of this duo.

    "It's just a place where you can hide away and find a way
    You can recover from whatever you have done wrong"
    Meaning you can go with a major label and make more cash to pay the bills.

    "You'll never be discovered, never have to show yourself
    And you can hide till whatever time you want to"
    As with all major record labels, the finished product is completely at the hands of the company, not the band. They can make you sing whatever the hell they want depending on the type of contract. However, it is my belief that it is just inexperience speaking when she mentions "you can hide till whatever time you want to" because of unbreakable record contracts. Not a big fan of the song personally, or the lyrics of She Like Electric in general because of the lack of dimension, but that is just me being a pretentious snob lol.
