Montreal You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I could never imagine life being without you
I count off the minutes just waiting for you to appear

But what's funny is this was day that I chose to
Ask you to live with me, oh, wait, I suppose you
Already suspected the reason I invited you here

Because you just said: "No...
I've got somewhere else to go
And the plans I've made
Don't include you, I'm afraid"
And that's all that you would say

I still can't bring myself to accept what you've told me
I feel so dead inside, oh, won't you just hold me?
How can you believe that these weeks just mean nothing at all?

You just said "Thanks, but no..."
You made your mind up long ago
You didn't even ask for time
To think about just why I'm
So desperate for you to stay
Because you're going to leave me anyway
Well just give me a call
When you reach Montreal
At least I'll know you're there

You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I can't imagine life being without you
You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I can't imagine how

You could just say "Thanks, no...
I've got somewhere else to go
And the plans I've made
Don't include you, I'm afraid"
I really wish that you could stay
But I guess your 'plane leaves any day
Well just give me a call
When it lands in Montreal

Project Cenzo

Where Everybody Knows Your Name (Theme From Cheers)Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Takin' a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same,
You wanna be where everybody knows your name.

You wanna go where people know, people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows your name.
