Track Name: Les Lumières de la Ville de Montréal
Les lumières de la Ville de Montréal
Thousands of people driving around in circles
Where do I fit?
If I disappear, will the world forget?

There's only one love in my heart
In my mind's stage she is the star
When will you sing me your song
of how the whole world gets along?

Oh my love I'd do it all for you
I'd be your everything if you want me to
I'd cook you food and write you songs
and kiss you
But only if you want me to
Only if you want me to
I hope you really want me too
Track Name: St. Urbain's Not The Same As It's Written In Your Books
St. Urbain's not the same as it's written in your books
There's no streetcar 55 and the cyclists never look
No children on the street, people driving so fast
One morning in the fall, I got into an accident

Still there's nowhere else in Canada I call home
Even though on this big island I feel so alone
J'essaie parler Français, it comes out malade
Mais sans Montréal, I'd be so fucking sad

St. Laurent has never been the same
Only tourists and old folks call it the Main
Still, in 300 years some things never change
See a show, have a drink, eat chow mein

When I walked these streets at 10 years old I felt dreams
And I still feel the same when I sit on a metro seat
I was so sad and so scared for so long
'Til I moved to Montréal and started playing my songs

Being well through harmony
Being well through harmony
Being well through harmony
Being well through harmony

Hey did you see that hype new post-punk band recently? They're going to be in Pitchfork in less than a year. How could you ever say St. Viateur bagels are better than Fairmount? A hot Fairmount is the best. One time in Anjou I stole a tank top at Wal-Mart. Sometimes I forget how beautiful this place really is, but then I remember.
