Hamburg Song Lyrics - Keane



Review The Song (35)


I don't wanna be adored
Don't wanna be first in line
Or make myself heard
I'd like to bring a little light
To shine a light on your life
To make you feel loved

No, don't wanna be the only one you know
I wanna be the place you call home

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don't want to know
I give much more
Than I'd ever ask for


Will you see me in the end
Or is it just a waste of time
Trying to be your friend
To shine, shine, shine
Shine a little light
Shine a light on my life
And warm me up again

Fool, I wonder if you know yourself at all
You know that it could be so simple

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don't want to know
You take much more
Than I'd ever ask for


Say a word or two to brighten my day
Do you think that you could see your way

To lay yourself down
And make it so, but you don't want to know
You take much more
Than I'd ever ask for

This song is my love life ! | Reviewer: Mary | 8/13/13

I ever used to "give much more than i ask for" :-( And after all of it, my boyfriend gave me up. When I feel tired about everything, it gives me the strenght to carry on !
AND FUCK, TIM RICE-OXLEY IS THE BEST SONGWRITER EVER !

typical love problem | Reviewer: estefania | 9/29/12

You are in lvoe wiht someone but he see you as a friend and u want him to be happy but you have to be strong looking him dating with any other girls and knowing that u miss him so much and u wish he could feel the same. :(
I am so depressed but I love KEANE its the best band I had ever heard I recomend somewhere only we know,try again,is it any wonder also this one and this is the last time and everybodys changing,TOM CHAPLIN is my life also <33

this song FTW | Reviewer: aditya dimitri | 8/31/12

This part break my heart into pieces, as it is my real condition right now

Will you see me in the end
Or is it just a waste of time

I'm secretly in love with my friend, and i'm secretly being gay. I'd even move to the same apartment with him, so I just can be near him tho i know he's out of my reach.
All I can ever do is see him from distance, and wish for the best for him and me, tho i know there will be no "we" in he and I.

God, i need to drink

It's about the situation when you love someone so much that you don't really care if she/he does not loves you back as much as you love her/him, because all you want is her/him to be happy and to see her/him beeing glad or hear her/his voice speaking to you is more than enough for you. It's about the most beautiful weakness of all what's called Love.
Well, for me. :)

This song, this god damned song.. | Reviewer: Nikhil | 5/4/12

I am a person who listens to stuffs like Necrophagist n The Black Dahlia Murder n those stuffs.. But this song, this god damned song takes so fuckin much outta me.. Its hard to explain.. Hate to say it, but I like Keane.. Not just this song but there are others as well.. :(

nice song, but need some help | Reviewer: ferlina | 7/28/09

hey, I know this must sound very weird to you but I might need a little help ´cause I´m sure there is a deeper meaning sometimes between the lines but english is not my mother tongue and that makes it even more difficult to understand the message of the song sometimes...
so would anybody please be so kind to explain the song a bit to me?

Damn | Reviewer: Ed | 3/20/09

I am crying now listening to this song. It just makes the pain in life seem a bit more pleasant.

Beautiful song, anyways.

And ya, I agree with Clarissa, we should open a bar and drink beer as we cry. I wished I had some alcohol now.

Magnificent Piece!!! | Reviewer: John Eric Peter | 1/23/09

There are some people out there who think Keane are boring, and this startles me!! They are nothing less than EPICCCC and Hamburg Song is probably my second favourite slow piece they've done, after She Has No Time obviously!!!

comments | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/08

well, a friend sent me this song. and I really liked it .. english isnt my mother tongue so.. I listen to songs written in english and that really helps.. anyway.. this song aint the kind I like, I mean, I love hiphop and RnB.. but it did touch my soul, though..
because Im in love with someone famous.. and its really hard to handle this love. he doesnt even know my name...
whatever..
the best part I liked was :

I don't wanna be adored
Don't wanna be first in line
Or make myself heard
I'd like to bring a little light
To shine a light on your life
To make you feel loved


this comment thing is amazing. lol. except my best friend, no one really know those.. aha..
so..
well, what a long comment.
okay.
hte last thing im saying is,
love is beautiful anyway..

its makes me cry for her.............................. | Reviewer: robn | 10/28/08

well this songs reminds of my girlfriend............whom i had hurt very badly..........but never knew that she would not forgive me jus once and give a single chance..................
i still love her n i know no one can replace her from my heart...........
I REALLY LOVED HER N JUS LISTENING THIS SONGS MAKES ME FEEL CRYING JUS REMEMBERING HER.....ONLY HER............

yeap I cried | Reviewer: Adsy | 2/11/08

I never thought a song could make me cry, but indeed this song induces the water works every time I hear it. I heard it the day my dog died and it sums him up perfectly, one verse is especially poignant -

I'd like to bring a little light
To shine a light on your life
To make you feel loved

That's Amazin' | Reviewer: Jacobo | 2/8/08

I love it, really that's amazing, me encanta mucho esta canción, es una de mis favoritas, tan simple pero engloba toda una situación, de pana Tom se lució en esta canción, felicitaciones a la banda, KEANE RULES!

yea | Reviewer: leo | 1/18/08

hehe i agree with clarissa. Hey clarissa, would you marrie me? and, of course, we can use hamburg song instead the wedding march. and the people who posted their comments below could be the crying ones. oh what a beautiful picture!

anyway, its a great song

hahahaha | Reviewer: Clarissa S | 1/10/08

I like the song, don´t get me wrong...but the coments are hillarious... I think you should all get together in a bar and get drunk to cry your souls out...I´d be the bar tender...are you up to?? yeah yeah...of course we´ll put the song again and again

Beautiful. | Reviewer: Emily | 12/22/07

At first I didn't really like it because it just starts off so slow. But after listening to it a couple of times it became one of the best songs I've heard. I love it and listen to it several times a day. <3
