Small Back Room

Where are you going to hide yourself? Do you have a room where you are left alone? Where you can let go your thoughts and dream of a different life? Where you can hide from reality?

Moira Waugh’s emotionally compelling lyrics lure the listener into this story of love and of loss. She tells a story about one woman hiding herself in a room only existing in mind where she can hide to let memories and wishes become reality again.

Moira’s special talent is to put a very decent attitude in every single note sung. You can taste the current bitterness, rage, irony but also let you recognize the the fun there was in the past.

Siobhan put this into a piano ballad setup. Only a beatleasque flute and the bass guitar picking up the mood of the lyrics and fastens and lowers the percieved speed of the track. Literally you can imagine the „winds wet sea“ with the Strings appearing.
Moira’s warm mellow singing is accompanied by the 110 BPM rhythm through all the various temptations.

Kara Square supports with fantastic soft and deep background vocals which perfectly underpins the mixed emotions the imaginary person is experiencing.

Lyrics:

Small Back Room

There’s a small back room where I sometimes go
It has no existence in space or time
It’s where I hide when I’m feeling low
The only place where you are mine

Just this one time away from our worlds, that was always the deal
Two days from life by a windswept sea was all we could ever steal

In that small back room I can hold you once more
The single place I want to be
I can leave my pain outside the door
In here you belong to me

We kept saying how lucky we’d met, some people never know bliss
But even then I knew my heart would die, I’d never get over this

There’s a small back room where I sometimes go
It has no existence in space or time
It’s where I hide when I’m feeling low
The only place where you are mine
