Lyrics

Went to study in the city for a year
surrounded by books and beer
home is so far from here
Momma is so far from here
I've been looking for something familiar
Amidst all the noise and blaire
there is no salt in the air
And no one else knows to care
I've been dreaming of what life used to be
But I'm a hamster in the gym every day
And its hard to run away
When you're running in the same damn place

But atleast its a pretty city
with lots of things to see and do
If I'm gunna be lost somewhere
Guess it's cool that I'm here with you Montreal
You make me feel so small Montreal

I've been waiting on my big break
In a bar on Saint Catherine Street
But atleast its pays my heat
Singing my songs while people eat
I walk the streets and wonder when
People will start to know my name
Aren't we all just chasing fame
Only the lucky win the game
In my apartment I force my pen
Desperation's a song's inspiration
There's nice acoustics in the metro station
But then dinner counts on your donation

But atleast its a pretty city
with lots of things to see and do
If I'm gunna be lost somewhere
Guess it's cool that I'm here with you Montreal
You make me feel so small Montreal

People call me a bum on the street
And I guess that's accurate
I'm a regurgitated piece of shit
But that's okay I'm used to it
I'm a mold and a growth on the side walk
I blend into the cement
But I've got nothing to repent
Listerine helps me forget
I hold out my hands for change
They pretend not to see me there
People are too busy to care
But I sure wish that they would share

But atleast it's a pretty city
with lots of things to see and do
If I'm gunna be lost somewhere
Guess it's cool that I'm here for you Montreal
You make me feel so small Montreal
