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.

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?
Holland-Dozier-Holland originally wrote "Where Did Our Love Go" with The Marvelettes in mind, but they turned it down. Marvelettes lead singer Gladys Horton sang in a lower key than Diana Ross, so when The Supremes came to record the tune, Ross was forced to sing in a lower, breathier style than she was used to.
