Spent a little time in Montreal
With a fire in the sun
Smokescreen covering
Over the entire city
And you know
I think that I saw you
In a different light

Whether or not
It was the wine
A quiet determination
Maybe something or someone
That you didn't know existed in you
And I think I loved you
Even more

So come on
Follow me down the alleyway
Upside down sign is hanging upright
In the door
Sitting on the steps in Montreal
I'm waiting for you
To spread your wings

Rage building
Held under by a desire
To understand
And I think I got it
The mystery that
I saw in my dreams
Became you in the flesh
Bones and all

S' come on,
Follow me down the alleyway
Upside down sign is hanging upright
In the door
Sitting on the steps in Montreal
I'm waiting for you
To spread your wings

You just sat there
In the background on the canvas
Watching me
Knowing every little fear
Phobia and twitch
Quietly laughing to yourself
Keeping me inside you
Away from the fear
Surrounding me

Come on,
Follow me down the alleyway
Upside down sign is hanging upright
In the door
Sitting on the steps in Montreal
I'm waiting for you

To spread your wings...
