Song Description

The song emits both strength and vulnerability. It begins with bass and congas, and the introduction of the mezzo vocals. The serenity of the verse lyrics gives way to the 'I-can-get-used-to-this' pre-chorus. The chorus describes the certainty that this is the love for her. The second verse describes not only the fact that this is the love she's wanted but also that this is the person she's needed to get back to her true self. In the next pre-chorus, she hopes she can return to him what he's given to her. The second to last chorus leads to the bridge, whose lyrics describe the hope that this 'gift' is not just a dream that will disappear. Throughout the song, the piano answers the vocal line, as the relation between latin bass and guitar and rock drum emphasize the 'cool' character of this song.

Story Behind the Song

A woman finally finds the man for her. She realizes he's the one to fulfill every wish and fantasy, as well as bring her to be herself. As she describes her certainty and how she can never get enough of him, she's also scared that he may disappear just as quickly as he arrived. She finally persuades him that they are meant for one another.

Lyrics

THE PLACE I BELONG
Words and Music by Maristella

Every moment we?re together,
never wanna let you go
You?re the reason for the yearning
that has haunted me so

In your words is the comfort
that I longed for all my life
Your touch just drives me wild now,
I finally feel alive

A girl can get used to being treated this way
Every moment, every hour
of every single day

Chorus
You give me what I need
My life is changed for good
Your love is unconditional,
I knew that someone could

Set my soul on fire,
Come on take me higher
I?ve been searching for so long
You?re the place,
the place where I belong

I was trying to ignore
all I had to hide
Neglecting who I was
buried deep inside

But you found the open door
brought meaning to my life
You feed my heart and soul,
my mind is satisfied

Can I ever be to you what you?ve given me?
You?ve opened up my world,
and now I finally see

Chorus

Bridge
An angel or a traveler, I will never know
How you ever found me and if you?ll have to go

To the world you live, the home that you came from
Just stay with me, our life has just begun

Chorus
