Gone gone childhood days
Gone in so many ways
All that I have said and done
The castles we have overcome
At last you have found a friend
The sweetest voice will never end
And it echoes down the mountainside
People live and people die
Friendly face will always be
Wrapped up in my childhood days

Old dogs and worn out shoes
Even children sing the blues
How we must endure it all
To save God's creatures great and small
All my world is there and then
The voices come to me again
And they echo down the mountainside
People live and people die
I still can see my Daddy's face, Oh Lord
This is a lonely place

Fast train , train too slow
Maybe you got no place to go
Let me set your spirit free
It's crazy but you comfort me
We share together what we found
The force of love is all around
And it echoes down the mountainside
Little bit of soul we hide
Find us lost without a trace
Oh Lord
This is a lonely place

Gone gone childhood days
Gone in so many ways
In all my children you can see
What old aquaintance means to me
Drean is mine and here it stays
All wrapped up in my childhood days
And it echoes down the mountainside
People live and people die
Tho I love you for always
I lost you in my childhood days

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."

Me and Johnny
Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

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.
