Story behind 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?
