"Anywhere" as written by Kimberley Moyes and Julian Hamilton....
Deeper, I know you want it deeper
You know you want it deeper
I think we're going deeper
I know you want it

Faster, I know you want it faster
I know you want it faster
These days we're moving faster
I think we're moving

Further, I know we're going further
You know we're going further
Yeah, now we're climbing further
And I can see it

Warmer, yeah, now you're getting warmer
Feel like you're getting closer
Yeah, now you're getting so hot
Feel like you're burning

Surprise, surprise, you're on your own
It's in your eyes, the love's you've known
And the one's you loved
You lost completely

Darker, outside it's getting darker
Yeah, now it's getting darker
At last it's getting darker
And I can see it

Louder, yeah, now it's getting louder
The noise is getting louder
The night is getting louder
And I can hear it

Stronger and now you're going stronger
Yeah, now you're getting stronger
You're finally growing stronger
And I can feel it

Surprise, surprise, you're on your own
It's in your eyes, the love's you've known
And the one's you loved
You lost completely

So let yourself down tonight
Anywhere, I'll take you out tonight
Anywhere, put on that dress you like
Anywhere

The one with birds on it, they're flying around
Now when you're short of breath
Go anywhere and when your heart's in pieces
Anywhere, I'll take you out tonight

    General Commentthe first time i herd this song i thought it was a bit raver..
    the last two versus really got me.. made me think about a time ive experienced. lyrics like that can make a song when they're impacting.

    i think the songs about a relationship that you knows going to fall apart and can see it happening.. not to sure but thats my interpretation.

    General CommentIts obviously pretty sexual. I thinkk as well its a bit of a soft raver. The song to me is about a one night stand, with a girl who has lost all self respect. any other ideas?

    General CommentI think the sexual lyrics on there can work two ways, as the aforementioned and also as something else...a relationship getting too close for comfort...she might want things 'deeper, faster, further and warmer'...references to time passing and feeling 'closer' as in closer in distance.

    He leaves her, perhaps 'you're on your own' OR now the 'you' is 'him' and he's now, typically, on his own after being so fickle.

    So he lapses into depression (darker, louder..etc) and then hints at building up the courage to commit (stronger).

    That massive bridge at the end pushes 'him' down the tunnel to the light at the end and he chooses to be with her. (I'll take you out tonight...anywhere).

    I think it's one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

    General CommentThis is my take on the lyrics...

    Yeah now you're getting warmer,
    Feel like you're getting closer,
    Yeah now you're getting so hot,
    Feel like you're burning

    When I first listened to this I felt like I was being worked up for something. While it might hold sexual connotations metaphorically speaking, I don't think that's what it's about. That first verse in particular sort of ends in disappointment. She enjoys having a bit of fun with the guy but when it starts getting a little too hot to handle, she backs off.

    Surprise surprise,
    You're on your own
    It's in your eyes
    The love's you've known
    And the one's you loved,
    You lost completely

    She's a repeat offender. She's a bit of a heartbreaker. She's let him go, like all the other guys and he saw it coming but refused to believe he'd be just the same as all the other guys.

    So let yourself down tonight,
    Anywhere
    I'll take you out tonight,
    Anywhere

    He still can't get away from her although she hurt him.

    General CommentFirstly - very possible for a song to have more than one interpretation people.

    I think it's about getting involved in a relationship, or even just an encounter, that's too intense to handle, and all the repercussions of it, yet still deciding to give it a shot.

    My Interpretationi think its a break up. i just broke up with my ex, and this song totally spoke to me, everything the song talked about, i was going through or feeling. pressure, uncertainty, loneliness, depression, and the want/need to just GO....anywhere.

    then maybe trying to make it up to her by taking her out, "put on that dress you like anywhere"

    definitely a painful song if you ask me

    General Commentblack&green - I totally agree. :)
    That's what I thought of too, though, maybe not QUITE the same because, well, I thought it said:
    "Your on, your on" instead of "Your on, your own."
    But it makes much more sence now! :D Thanks

    My InterpretationI seem to have taken to this in a different way to most people. The first time I listened to the song I wasn't that big a fan until the end of the song where I literally got shivers.

    I think that the song is about a woman but from the perspective of her long time friend. I think the "surprise, surprise" can almost be taken as a sort of sarcasm or tiredness. I think the main verses (deeper, faster, etc.) are the stages of a feeling that the woman goes through as the relationship progresses and eventually (surprise, surprise) ends in feelings of darkness and noise.

    I think the end of the song (as in my opinion it was sung with a kind of exhausted passion) is about the friend offering to show her a good night, whether "more than friends" or not.

    Just my thoughts. Sorry for the bad musical teminology too. Not my forte (haha).
