Song Study: Prince’s ‘Somewhere Here On Earth’ and Twin Flame Love
In July 2007 Prince released the single Somewhere Here On Earth in support of his thirty-second studio album, Planet Earth.
This jazz inspired track truly deviates from Prince’s more funk and rock driven hits. When I first heard the song it immediately caught my attention. It is smooth, sexy, and it showcases Prince’s full vocal range.
What is most gripping about Somewhere Here On Earth are the lyrics. After many times replaying the song, I realized that this ballad is about twin flame love.
It you have no idea what twin flames are checkout this article (click here) . In summary, twin flames are two people who basically share the same soul DNA and when they finally find each other on earth they immediately recognize one other and share a deep bond.
Well-known psychologist Carl Jung believed in the concept of the collective unconscious which is a collective unit of all human instincts and archetypes.
I always felt that when a creative person- songwriter, author, or artist – creates and enters into a flow state, these individuals leave this three dimensional reality and tap into the collective unconscious or the akashic records (all human events-present, past, and future).
From the collective unconscious or akashic records, Creatives learn things about themselves they might only known on a subconscious level.
When Prince wrote Somewhere Here on Earth, he tapped into these sources and found out he had a twin flame.
I know this all might sound a little odd, but muddle with me through mud as I attempt to explain how Somewhere Here on Earth is actually about Prince’s twin flame and is not just some arbitrary love song.
I know you are out there –
I can feel your eyes on me.
Seen that face a thousand times,
If only in my dreams.
I know you really want me,
I can feel your hands on me.
I really want to touch you to,
But I’m much to shy to speak.
In this verse, we see that Prince claims he feels his twin’s eyes on him and has seen her face a thousand times, but only in his dreams.
If you have a twin flame most of your life you might have had the sensation of being watched by some unseen force or maybe felt like you were looking for something or someone.
Many twin flames report having seen their twin in a dream long before they actually met or saw each other in the physical.
Prince also desired to touch his twin which is understandable, as the twin flame touch is said to be electric.
Prince admits to feeling his twin’s hand on him, which only means that he feels something in the atmosphere letting him know that his twin flame is out there wanting him just as much.
And even though
I’m all alone.
For what it’s worth,
You’re somewhere here on Earth.
And I like it…
In this verse, Prince is simply feeling lonely, but also excited because he knows he and his twin are both incarnate on earth currently. A very joyous feeling for twins, even when they have no idea where to find their missing soul mate.
I know you’re out there
I can feel you getting closer to me.
I’m just wondering what you’re waiting for,
You know I am free.
In this digital age, you could just page me.
I know it’s the rage, but it just don’t engage me
I like the face to face.
Do you want to do this at yours, or my place?
In this verse, Prince can feel that not only is his twin incarnate, but also their union is near. Prince is ready to meet this mystery lady, but she seems to be taking her time.
Twin flame meetings only happen when both parties are spiritually ready and the timing is just right. On a subconscious level, Prince knows he’s ready but his twin is the hold up.
Often one twin is much older than the other. Major age disparity is often reported among twin flames, so perhaps she isn’t old enough or mentally and spiritually mature enough.
It’s been so long,
Since I been with somebody.
Like a million years!
Now you’re here on Earth.
You’re here, you’re here.
Somewhere here on Earth,
And I like it, I like it.
If you believe in past lives (I’m shaky on this subject at the moment) you might know that twins don’t always incarnate at the same time.
One twin is usually on earth learning lessons while the other is in spirit guiding the other lovingly from the other side.
Even when both twins finally decide to incarnate together, moments before the younger twin’s birth she or he might still be lovingly conveying messages to the twin already on earth.
I know you hear me.
Like a whisper in your ear.
You don’t have to fear me.
You’re everything I hold so dear.
I know you already love me,
You’re probably just to cool to say.
Somebody somewhere put you down,
But that’s ok, that’s ok.
Prince says that his twin can hear him and maybe she can. Twin flames are known to share a telepathic connection.
Prince knows that his twin already loves him and this is true. Twins don’t have to be connected on earth to share a bond and love they don’t even understand.
Prince also understands that his twin might be afraid of their meeting and it is very feasible to believe that too.
Your twin is the only person who can look into your eyes and see your soul, your flaws, and totally change your life- the idea is terrifying! But Prince loves his twin and doesn’t want her to be afraid of the growth and changes they will endure.
Lastly, Prince feels that his twin might have shared a connection with a karmic partner (Google it, LOL) or a soulmate that hurt her and that hurt might be stalling there meeting.
But it’s ok, Prince understands that each relationship before him matured her enough for their union.
‘Cause whenever you feel,
It’s time to heal.
No, no more hurt,
As long as I’m here on Earth.
The line, ” ‘Cause whenever you feel, it’s time to heal,” is probably most indicative of the twin flame journey.
Through the process of triggering, unconditional love, separation and eventual union, twin flames will heal every piece of their hearts, inner child, and minds that need to be healed. After healing, joyus union will have made it all worth the wait.
So what do you think? Could Prince’s masterpiece ‘Somewhere Here on Earth’ really be about twin flames?
