"Something In Me Was Dying" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin and Richard David Hughes....
Something in me was dying
And my heart was heavy as stone
Hard as I was trying
I never could find, find my way home

And your voice came out of nowhere
Be my friend and give me your hand
Let's take off together
And then we can live wherever we land

Something in me was broken
And my thoughts were bitter and ill
My world was blown open
And I couldn't see and I couldn't feel
You said be yourself and think of me
And you'll know there's nothing to fear
Let's make plans together
It's time to move on and get out of here

Girl I need you
Don't know what I would do
Will you see the story through
It's a cruel world
And I need somewhere to hide
But time goes by
And your still on my side

Something in me was sinking
Cause my heart was heavy as stone
I gave up with thinking
I never would find, find my way home
And your voice came out of nowhere
Be my friend and give me your hand
Let's take off together
And then we can live wherever we land

Girl I need you
Don't know what I would do
Will you see the story through
It's a cruel world
And I need somewhere to hide
The time goes by and your still on my side

Waiting
Searching
Turning over
Running round in circles
And I've worn myself out
Hoping that we'll always be together
Yeah we'll always be together[4x]

    General CommentI truly love the lyrics of that song! I guess adam98971 already resumed quite well its content.
    I also can relate very much to that song as after a really painful break-up I finally found somebody new (about one year ago) who really changed my life and helped me to see things in an optimistic way. I hope this so much to last.

    I think it is kind of ironic that the song has such a depressing title but is actually one of the happiest songs of Keane. :) Well, I read this statement somewhere and I really had to agree.

    Song MeaningThis song is about a troubled person whom just couldn't have any luck until he saw the 'helping hand'. His ray of sun that reached out and helped him up. It takes you through his feelings of sorrow and hopelessness to hope and happiness -- without and with the girl.

    "Be my friend and give me your hand." -- It sounds like she helps him through the darkness of his despair.

    It's saying "No matter what happens to me, you are always there to help me through. Let us continue on."
