my window’s a sieve
this city seeps in
a heat and a friction
we can’t help but breathe in

the door is wide open
but we’re both feeling trapped
both of us hoping
there must be some kind of way back

je te retrouve à montréal
laisses tes soucis à brooklyn
ils sont pas réels
i know you well
and you know me
but this city treats us like strangers
dangerous like bankers
but all of that changes
when we go back to montréal

goldie and i
at the outpost café
brooklyn’s so heavy
this time of day

she tells me you’re trouble
i should run far and run fast
but she don’t know, everything will be alright
if we can only get back

je te retrouve à montréal
laisses tes soucis à brooklyn
ils sont pas réels
i know you well
and you know me
but this city treats us like strangers
dangerous like bankers
but all of that changes
when we go back to montréal

i stand up to leave
you pull me back down
you cry as you kiss me
you cry as you kiss me
but something is missing
we left it in montréal
and there ain’t no going back
there for us now

je te retrouve à montréal
laisses tes soucis à brooklyn
ils sont pas réels
i know you well
and you know me
but this city treats us like strangers
dangerous like bankers
desperate like angels
but all of that changes
when we go back to montréal
