Separates and lingerie, seven pairs of shoes
Lots of Woolworth's makeup, a pair of Blackwatch trews
Your out-of-tune piano, sentimental photographs
A million little memories, a million little laughs

The wing of the airplane has just caught on fire
I say without reservation we ain't getting no higher

All you wanted from me, all I had to give
Nothing matters you'll see, when in paradise you live

The plane is diving faster, we're getting near the ground
Nobody is screaming, no one makes a sound

It's a girl, Mrs. Walker, it's a girl
It's a girl, Mrs. Walker, it's a girl (Mrs. Walker, it's a girl)
It's a girl, Mrs. Walker, it's a girl (Mrs. Walker, it's a girl)
It's a girl, Mrs. Walker, it's a girl (Mrs. Walker, it's a girl)

    This song basically describes a woman going through her purse while descending in a plane about to crash. This is sort of the back story to the rock-opera Tommy, which they would release later According to Pete Townshend's notes: "It's a rock and roll airplane crash song with a real Pop Art plane crash and a happy reincarnation ending... I rarely leave any good idea unused. 'Rael' themes crop up in Tommy and so do the last lines of this. Of course, Tommy was a dear little boy."

    This, like nearly all songs from the "Sell Out" period, as it was aptly added to that album for the cd release, have the most brilliant vocal melodies, they are just incredibly catchy, with a sort of whimsy to them. Absolutely perfect songs for radio, which is hilariously ironic in a sad way that the album didn't really do as well as it should have, and that it only had one single. A real shame.

    It's a very sad song in my opinion, but it seemed to be a musical prototype of Tommy. Even the intro and such sounds like the one from "Sensation"

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
