I found this song from a freestyle ski video once and then I heard it on the radio. It took a bit of research to find the song but now I listen to it every day. I found this rendition and would like you to share it. Below you can find the lyrics and I put in some foot notes as well.

Hide and Seek
     By: Imogen Heap

1where are we?
what the hell is going on?
the dust has only just begun to fall
crop circles in the carpet
sinking feeling

2spin me round again
and rub my eyes,
this can’t be happening
when busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads – heavy

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines
3all those years
they were here first

4oily marks appear on walls
where pleasure moments hung before the takeover,
the sweeping insensitivity of this still life

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines (oh, you won’t catch me around here)
blood and tears (hearts)
they were here first

5Mmmm whacha say,
Mmmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm whacha say,
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Because it is
Mmmm whacha say?
Mmmm that it’s just what we need
you decided this
whacha say?
Mmmm what did she say?

ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
speak no feeling no i don’t believe you
you don’t care a bit,
you don’t care a bit

(hide and seek)
ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs

6(hide and seek)
speak no feeling no i don’t believe you
you don’t care a bit,
you don’t care a (you don’t care a) bit

(hide and seek)
oh no, you don’t care a bit
oh no, you don’t care a bit

(hide and seek)
oh no, you don’t care a bit
you don’t care a bit
you don’t care a bit

1 I guess the first three lines really set the feelings I have and probably many of you. Because of God and you, I’m able to fight the sinking feeling. I try to focus on the present and God’s grace. Thanks for being there for me.

2 I know we’re saying “this can’t be happening” but it is and I’ll (we’ll) get through it. We’ll need to hold our heads often. I’m sorry.

3 Don’t worry about “all those years” because they have many positive moments and there are many more positive moments and years to come. We can do it.

4 Here I picture the pleasure moments as my wall of pictures of my athletes that was at my desk. They have been replaced with the oily marks for now. I work and pray everyday to wipe the marks away and put up the pictures of my family and true friends. My family and longest friends have been pushed away by Satan and I want them back. They are there for me, now I need to be there for them.

5 This is my favorite part of the song, the tempo picks up and it makes some important statements: “that it’s all for the best” and “that it’s just what we need“. It doesn’t say its going to be easy. I know with God and your support, I can heal.

6 The line, “you don’t care a bit” just doesn’t fit for me. There’s a reason you’re here and I believe it is because you do care. Thank you for that.
