"Soho Square" as written by Mark Edward Cascian Nevin and Kirsty Anna Maccoll....
Your name froze on the winter air
An empty bench in Soho Square
Forgotten now I turn away
Just save me for a rainy day
But don't be sorry
I don't want to hear it baby

My feet froze in the winter chill
I knew I'd probably get ill
But I was praying we could fill
An empty bench and still
You're so sorry
But I don't want your pity baby

It's all yours now please don't tease
The pigeons shiver in the naked trees
And I'll do anything but
Please don't hurt me
Just kiss me quick
'Cause it's my birthday
And I feel so small
I don't know why
But no I'm not too old to cry

An empty bench in Soho Square
If you'd have come you'd have found me there
But you never did 'cause you don't care
And I'm so sorry baby
I don't mind loneliness too much
But when I met you I was touched
And that was good enough for me
But do we always have to be sorry
Why can't we just be happy baby?

One day you'll be waiting there
No empty bench in Soho Square
And we'll dance around like we don't care
And I'll be much too old to cry
And you'll kiss me quick in case I die
Before my birthday

One day you'll be waving there
No empty bench in Soho Square
No I don't know the reason why
I'll love you till the day I die
But one day you'll be waiting there
Come summertime in Soho Square
And I'll be painting stars up in the sky
Before I get too old to cry
Before my birthday
I hope I see those pigeons fly
Before my birthday
In Soho Square on my birthday

    General CommentThis song is perfect.


    If you've having trouble figuring out what it's about. It's about a girl who gets stood up in Soho Square (A square off of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road in London) yet despite this still wishes he would have met and and that he will one day meet her.
