"You Know Where to Find Me" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Jane Heap....
You know where to find me
When you're on your way out
All bustle and busy
Enough is enough
Because life's sweet assemblages
Equate to driftwood away
Be still with me

You know where to find me
For no particular reason
To stop traffic behavior
Or to get something off your chest
'Cause we go a long way back
Back to nothing at all
Hm, be still with me

Oh oh oh
Won't you be
Be still with me

You know where to find me
If you think it's all over
I can sense it a mile off
It's no friendly hello
You could be screaming drunk
Well I've got my bad days too
I'm gonna be here for you
Be still with me

In a public place, private thoughts
A reminder of a precious loss
You can be a source of constant reassurance
Let the breeze block sadness drop

Oh oh oh
Won't you be
Be still with me

Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
(Be still) Heart, lung, soul
Arteries and all
A shoulder at the ready, vital organs on call
(Be still) Heart, lung, soul
Arteries and all
A shoulder at the ready

Don't mistake my charity
For what it is
Deem me into believing necessary
Don't mistake my open arms
For what it is
They can turn on you
So show me the money
Show me the money

Blue and green,
Fresh eyes on me
I'm young again
All things to mend with
Bite-size life boats
I'll fix your smashed up head

Be still with me
If you want
To be alone (Be still)
If you'd rather die then tell
You'll know where I'll be (Be still)
Where to find me
For high talk
To cut it off or bring it on

A proposal
If you're broken, I'll be here,
I'll be here

A secret
For a breather
If there's nothing you can do

    My InterpretationThis one is just poetic as all hell. There are more than a few songs out there that deal with supportiveness -- "Here" by Pet Shop Boys is a personal favorite -- but few that go here: "Don't mistake my charity / For what it is / A deep need to be needed / Necessary." She's reminding us that it's just as mutually destructive not to accept love when we need it as it is not to offer it when we can, because that need is not a one-way street. It's all too easy to forget.

    My OpinionThis song is a fantastic piece of art work. What's unfortunate for us measly listeners is that a lot of lyrics are simply only relevant to Imogen at the time she's writing them and therefore, we don't know from where they altogether come from. At any rate, this is a masterpiece, built from the ground up. I love that it doesn't need a huge orchestra of instruments, or fake percussion to give it "swag".. it simply says that she will be there for the one she loves.. it matters not if he/she is screaming drunk, in a public place, or private thoughts.. she wants to be there for them. Fabulous song clearly from an extremely talented mind.
