Liner Notes

Inspired by our visit to Montreal, where my wife and I were engaged. This one was an experiment in songwriting with Maj7 chords, a new form for my guitar vocabulary.

The lyrics aren't that good and my singing is shite, but I am proud that I pulled this off as a live recording instead of needing to multi-track.

Lyrics

Not so very far from here
A city inspires my dreams
A little corner of paradise
Or so it seems

It felt a lot like Europe
But only a time zone away
We spent a week of romance there
And we both wanted to stay

Montreal... A city that has it all
Montreal... One visit and forever she calls
Montreal... The place we bought our ring
Montreal... For you I sing

A city full of culture
A city with rich history
They once called her "City of Mary"
Or “Ville-Marie”

Montreal... A city that has it all
Montreal... One visit and forever she calls
Montreal... The place we bought our ring
Montreal... For you I sing

Now I know that we will both see her soon
In fact we promised to try every year
To make a trip back to that special place
The town that has grown so dear

Montreal... A city that has it all
Montreal... One visit and forever she calls
Montreal... The place we bought our ring
Montreal... For you I sing
