I'm gonna go to Montréal
I'm gonna get there on a train
I'm gonna dance away my nights
I'm gonna drink away my days
I wanna flirt with all the french girls
I wanna whisper soft and low
Would you love me in the moonlight
If by the dawn I had to go?

When the shadows put on faces
Open windows take me places
But the headlights just pass me by
Another sleepless night
Can they help me throw away my pride
And take it in stride
When you're not there?
(When you're not there?)

But when the seconds pass like years
It gets so hard to turn the page
Cause when the lights can't touch my skin
I'm like a tiger in a cage
All these people, all these faces
Are unfamiliar to me
From the Plateau down to the Old Port
Can they alleviate the stagnancy?

When the shadows put on faces
Open windows take me places
But the headlights just pass me by
Another sleepless night
When I look into this stranger's eyes
What a surprise
That you're not there (x5)

And on my tired metro ride
I'll wish that I was someone new
Then i could walk along Saint Catherine
Without depressing déjà vu
I'd hear the jazz play every summer
Sit on the peak of Mont Royal
Whatever substance I could sample
That would improve this bad morale

Dans le chaos d'oratoire, je me trouverais
Dans le chaos d'oratoire, je me trouverais

Dans le chaos d'oratoire, je me trouverais
Comme un enfant perdu en des lumières pourpres
