Canary Wharf

About this Song:

Moira: I thought it was time to write something with upbeat lyrics for a change and what better place for two prospective lovers to find each other than Canary Wharf during their morning commute!

Siobhan: I wanted to create a backtrack that combines good old songwriting like we know it from Burt Bacharach but using Johnny Marr Harmonies. Additionally I added a bit of drama working with the melancholic story Moira is singing about

Lyrics:


CANARY WHARF
I see you every morning, a soulful face in the crowd
I’d like to get to know you better, if only time allowed
I feel deprived if I don’t see you there
But we are strangers, so why the hell should I care?

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

I’ve checked out your hand and there’s no wedding band
But our sphere of interest might be for the same brand
I’m dusting off my sex life ‘cos it’s not over and done
And I’m wondering if you’d give this thing a trial run?

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

Are you introvert and bookish, moody but sweet?
I’ve got a weird sense of humour, but my intellect’s awfully neat
I’m into champagne and coffee doughnut rings
Tell me what you like to eat, but it’s over if it’s ‘wings’!

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

Want the ‘same old’ or the unknown? ‘Cos it’s up to you to choose
But if you don’t believe in love, you’ve got nothing to lose!

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello
