"Soho" as written by and Jaret Ray Reddick....
New York City, Subway Station
A million people and you were stickin' out
Smashed thumb, and so pretty
I wonder what you're all about

Crowded train, separation
But still I see you in the corner of my eye
Busy station, anticipation
For you to turn around and see me smile

And you look so trendy
Spaghetti straps and six inch soles
I just looked down and didn't see me
Are you an uptight, turn around, no esteem wreck like me?

So long SOHO
I just sat and watched you go
Take good care and always know
I'll always know that you are there somewhere

Dark hair, a fair complexion
I memorize your face and eyes
The door is open, and I don't see you
And through the window you turn and smile

And you look so trendy
Spaghetti straps and six inch soles
I just looked down and didn't see me
Are you an uptight, turnaround, no esteem wreck like me?

So long SOHO
I just sat and watched you go
Take good care and always know
I'll always know that you are there somewhere

So long SOHO

(So long SOHO)
Three vodka sevens and a J
I won't remember anything
(I just sat and watched you go)

This all just make no sense to me
For seven weeks you're in my dreams
(Take good care and always know)
Nothing's quite the same

I know your face but not your name
(So long SOHO)
I hope someday you'll hear this song
And one day I'll see you sing along

So long SOHO
I just sat and watched you go
Take good care and always know
I'll always know that you are there

So long SOHO
I just sat and watched you go
Take good care and always know
I'll always know that you are there

So long SOHO
I just sat and watched you go
Take good care and always know
So long SOHO

    General CommentHaha, why no comments?!
    One of my favourites for sure... my take on it is that it's about 'love at first sight', and he's saying that just from that short time he was watching her, he knows he won't forget her.

    General CommentOne of my fave BFS songs!

    I agree with the above comment. He's spotted someone and fell for her instantly.

    I had an experience very similar to this many years ago, except it was a bus station, in a crappy little town in the UK. So not exactly a NYC Subway haha.
