About the song
This is a song, not about Vancouver really, but about places within ourselves we are too scared to explore. About people we feel unworthy of. About how we fantasize about ourselves. The specific meanings are obscure, but that was the quality that attracted Wolf of Wolfmusic.

Wolf lives in Germany, and has a small following for his dark music. This is our first collaboration.
Lyrics

(chorus)
How far would you go
To get to Vancouver?
Would you turn the corner?
Would you take a step inside?
Could you find your way back
From the heart of Vancouver?
Are there secrets you are willing to confide?


(v1)

There are souls that slip through your fingers
There are words that echo without sound
There are songs unvoiced by singers
And dreams of flight that run aground

I wear a shirt that's new
I pause
And check for flaws
I drive the avenue
Obey the traffic laws
Is there a rendezvous?
I wear a shirt that's new

(chorus)
How far would you go
To get to Vancouver?
Would you turn the corner?
Would you take a step inside?
Could you find your way back
From the heart of Vancouver?
Are there secrets you are willing to confide?


(v2)

There's the view from the top of the stairs
There are perspectives that are enthralling
Vertigo catches us unawares
I always stop myself from falling

I breathe you through my skin
And yet
We've never met
I play a mandolin
Embrace your silhouette
And have what hasn't been
I breathe you through my skin


(bridge)

Jacket in the corner
Overflow with hints
Wearing them does nothing to convince

That the moon is in an unknown phase
And we live in undiscovered bays
Undiscovered bays

Namaste
Namaste

(chorus)
How far would you go
To get to Vancouver?
Would you turn the corner?
Would you take a step inside?
Could you find your way back
From the heart of Vancouver?
Are there secrets you are willing to confide?
