"Montreal" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
Montreal is
Where I began to feel inside
The gray sadness of winter.
When you told me that this isn't it,
And I drove away.

Walking to the statue in the park,
Through snow drifts up over our knees,
And every street sign written in French.
We sat by the statue.
You looked in my eyes,
Then said, "I'm so sorry."

Later, laying on your bed,
Wondering what's going wrong.
Every time I'd ask you'd start crying,
And whisper, "I don't know why,
I only know what I feel,
What a voice says to me"

I may be here now
But I've never left Montreal

    General Commentoh. i don't think he's ever sounded this heartbroken, and it just gets you down so much. You just wanna hold him and tell him everything will be ok.

    General CommentI completely agree. This song is so sad, without being whiny. It's amazing, and it breaks my heart every time.

    General Commentthis is possibly the most beautiful song Kevin Barnes has written. It's so sad, and it really moves me. I really like it.

    I'm pretty sure it's about his failed relationship with his girlfriend from Montreal, which of course led to the name of the band.
