Live in a Hiding Place

This song is by Idlewild and appears on the album The Remote Part (2002) and on the album Scottish Fiction: Best of 1997-2007 (2007).

There are times that I should try, to be so much more alive
But if time was right then I would be with you again
Or do you worry that I try to avoid the point and then deny
The time I spent deciding it was you again

It's when I live in a hiding place
It's the only way I feel safe
When I'm safe in a hiding place
(That's not hidden now)
I'm safe in a hiding place
It's the only way I feel safe
When I'm safe in a hiding place

And you're full of facts but not things that could add up to words
Think about meaning more as an after word
As in afterward

I return but don't remain, I'm impatient for a reason
To complain about winter, making me see through again
Or is it your damaged reply, that makes me realise that
The more I try the less that plans will help me comprehend again

That's why I live in a hiding place
It's the only way I feel safe
When I'm safe in a hiding place
(That's not hidden now)
I'm safe in a hiding place
It's the only way I feel safe
When I live in a hiding place

And you're full of facts but not things that could add up to words
You think about meaning more as an after word
And you're full of facts but not things that could add up to words
You think about meaning more as an after word
As in afterward
