"Montgomery On Central" as written by and Hutchings....
Saw you at the station
Waiting for a train
I crossed the street and caught the bus downtown
Before the sky opened up
Began to rain
And I had seen you through a mirror
A reflection in the store
The way your eyes looked back so pale blue and glassy
Like you were staring at me from some distant shore

And we'd arranged to meet one Sunday
At the edge of the north pier
An hour passed I bought some candy floss
Then slowly moved on to beer
And the carnival it had rolled over
It had no concern for those alone
I caught the ferris wheel over the city lights
Picked my feet up trundled home
To home
The some penny dropped inside me
Reverberating through the years
I was a friend by obligation
It was around then you'd disappeared
Disappeared

In my vocation as a debt collector
I chanced upon your very name
Well what's the use of growing older
If things just stay the same?
The same
Saw you singing down at Central Station
In that tunnel across the way
The way your voice cut through the wind with such sweet violence
It was like I'd seen you yesterday
Yesterday
You smiled and said 'I'd meant to call you'
I thought 'well you and me's the same'
We write phone numbers in invisible ink
And expect things to stay the same
The same
And that's as false as Father Christmas
And the Tooth Fairy as well
Do you think you'd have missed me
If I'd have disappeared as well
As well
You were singing 'love me two times baby
love me twice today
love me two times girl
I've gone away'

Love me two times baby
Love me twice today
Love me two times girl
I've gone away
