"Always Where I Need to Be" as written by and Luke Pritchard....
She don't know who she is
I can take her anywhere
Do whatever comes naturally to you
You know she just don't care
You know she just don't care

'Cause I'm always where I need to be
Yeah, and I always thought I would end up
With you, eventually
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do

Now I see her again
I ask to be her hummingbird
Whisper words in her ear
Oh now you know I just don't care

'Cause I'm always where I
Where I need to be
And I always thought
I would end up with you eventually
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do

I'm a man, I'm a man I'm a man on the scene
I'm a man, and I can be so obscene
Because I always think that I know how to be
But I always thought that I would end up with you, eventually
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do do do
Do dodo do do
I'm a man, I'm a man I'm a man on the scene
I'm a man, and I can be so obscene

    General CommentNobody's commented on this one yet? I'm slightly surprised as this is one of my favorites of The Kooks.

    Anyway, I find take this song to be about fate. At least this line:
    "‘Cause I’m always where I need to be
    And I always though I would end up
    with you eventually"

    Wherever he is in his life, what he's doing, whoever his friends are, it's how it's supposed to be at the time being. Thus the "Always where I need to be". Nothing is ever a mistake. And because of fate, he believes he'll end up with this person, obviously, when he says "And I always though I would end up with you, eventually"

    Love this song. :)

    General Commentwell i've heard both versions of the song now:
    i think its about a girl who tends to adapt to be likable to whoever she's with. in the other version:

    "She don't know who she is,
    Oh,I can take her anywhere,
    Do whatever comes naturally to you,"

    he can take her anywhere because she'll just fit in with everyone.

    "But I always thought I would end up with you eventually,"

    perhaps he tried to break up with her but then they ended up back together?

    "Now I see her again,
    I have to be a hummingbird,
    Whisper words in her ear,
    Oh, You know I just don't care,
    You know she just don't care,"

    Just the meaningless of the relationship. Neither of them care, perhaps its they're just getting back together because of familiarity and its easier then starting something new?

    "Say whatever comes into your head
    Oh, oh you know I just don’t care"

    once again, he just doesn't care very much. she's just kind of there. she adapts to whoever she's with and it doesn't matter to him whether she's there or not.

    General CommentThe more acoustic version of this song is a lot better and more beautiful, imho.
    This song means to me alot, about someone who's been friends with someone for a long time and has always loved them.
    ''Be whoever comes into your head
    Oh, you know I’ll take you there
    You know I’ll take you there''

    a lovely lyric.
