Somewhere not here

I remember when you came
I can just recall that day
Unexpected, undetected
If I'd have known I still would have done it.

So little time, so long to wait
A paradise, within your eyes
All the things I could tell you
All the things I could show you.

You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips
I dream I see your face
I see and dream of you.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

Somewhere, not here
Somewhere, not here
So, little time
So, little time.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

A thousand miles away
I'd like to fly to you.

I immerse myself
I dream, I see your face
I see, I dream of you
If you were here we'd watch
If you were here we'd see.

You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

Somewhere, not here
I know you are somewhere, not here
You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips
Are you thinking of me
Do I invade your sleep
A paradise, a paradise
Within your eyes.

I remember when you came
I can just recall that day
Somewhere not here
Somewhere not here
Somewhere.

    Song ComparisonSome say it's the part 2, and so the matching piece of "Sometime Later". But personally, I think both narrators are focused differently - one does the opposite of the other.

    Sometime Later (Part 1 of the dyptic)
    Vocals : Martin Barnard
    Moods : Sad, Painful, Nostalgic, Slow, Deep, Warm/Warm Colours (Red), Alone, Light, True, Dreamy
    Themes : Time, Memories/Souvenirs, Lovers' Couple, Both On The Same Wavelength, Mind/Vision Is Clear, No Illusions, Still Seduced/Moved, Not Working/Giving Up/Calling For Help (the narrator doesn't feel like going in a downward spiral and so, he needs relief and support), Desire, Wasted Love, Hurting Themselves, Overthinking
    Possibly : Post-Breakup (the couple forcefully broke because the narrator told her he was leaving), Pain (he suffers from this now that they're not a couple anymore), Early Autumn (rainy weather, September/October)

    Somewhere Not Here (Part 2 of the dyptic)
    Vocals : Wendy Stubbs
    Moods : Happy, Joyful, Slow, Cold/Cold Colours (Blue), Alone, Good, Real
    Themes : Place, Losing One's Way, Hunger, Dancing, Losing One's Words, No Wind/Clouds, Fading, Still In Love, Craving, Carrying On, Following Advice (from the former song's narrator), Perception, Complicated, Understanding, Feeling, Aching
    Possibly : Still In Love Despite Breakup (in that case, she did not suffer and she answers the letter from the former song's narrator), Mystery (would he answer her anyway?), Late Summer (sunny weather, August/September), Not Caring Of Despair

    Well, I don't know very much Mrs. Stubbs' song, but dividing it into different parts is much more complex than Mr. Barnard's song!

    Song FactCheck out the songwriters' first names...

    Corin (composer/musician)
    Lee (sampled composer)
    Andy (composer/musician)
    Wendy (singer/lyricist)

    That makes "claw" or "cawl". Cawl is a Welsh soup but I haven't got the taste of it, ha-ha. Plus, Alpha's city Bristol is located below Wales on the map of the British Islands.
