  • She gave to me her tenderness
    Her friendship and her love
    I see her face from time to time
    There in the sky above
    We grew up learning as we went
    What a voyage our life could be
    It took us through a wilderness
    Into the calmest sea
    Her smile could lift me from the pain
    I often found within
    She said some things I won't forget
    She made a few bells ring
    So simple her humility
    Her beauty found in grace
    Today she lives another life
    In some fantastic place
    She showed me how to raise a smile
    Out of a bed of gloom
    And in her garden sanctuary
    A life began to bloom
    She visualized a world ahead
    And planned how it would be
    She left behind the strongest love
    That lives eternally
    I have the hope that when it's time
    For me to come her way
    That she'll be there to show me around
    Whenever comes that day
    Her love was life and happiness
    And in her steps I trace
    The way to live a better life
    In some fantastic place, some fantastic place. Writer/s: CHRIS DIFFORD, GLENN TILBROOK

  • Andy from Taunton, MaHey Rauliy, check out this link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Some_Fantastic_Place)
  • Darren from London, United KingdomHi Rauliy Some Fantastic Place was released as a single in the UK in August 1993 and reached number 73 in the UK charts. It was taken from the album of the same name released in September 1993 on the A&M label. This is my favourite Squeeze song and they have written some amazing stuff over the years. Its such a great melody and, being a guitarist myself, the chords sequence is so interesting. I love how it builds from a simple acoustic guitar to a gospel sound, and the songwriters, Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford liken the feel of the song to 'Oh happy day', and 'The More I see you'. Add to this the meaning behind the lyrics about their close friend who died of cancer, this is such a moving song and i always relate it to members of my family who are no longer with us...fantastic song!!
  • Rauliy from Lomg Island, NyWhen was this song written and what C.D did it come out on?
