Allison Russell - Montreal Lyrics


Oh my Montreal
Can I dream of you tonight?
Of before the fall
Your rose, your azure light
Oh you Cathedrals
Your shadows felt like loving arms
I was your child, Montreal
You would not let me come to harm

To reminisce on the times before
There were just so few of them of them
The jackal came in spring, took me
When I was still so young so young
But the mind of a child has oceans wide
And a thousand millenniums
And the city was my sky and stars
Les fenêtres de l’infini (the windows of infinity)
Hmmm hmmm

J’étais si vieille, j’étais si jeune
J’étais si jeune, si vieille
Les yeux de l’enfant voient tout, voient tout
Voient tout, voient tout, tu sais
La lumière tavelée sur les arbres
La pourriture dans la plus blanche marbre
La sagesse bouleversant
La sagesse coeur brisant
La sagesse de l’enfant
La sagesse de l’enfant
Coeur brisant
Coeur brisant

Oh my Montreal
Can I dream of you tonight?
Of before the fall
Your rose, your azure light
Oh you Cathedrals
Your shadows felt like loving arms
I was your child, Montreal
You would not let me come to harm

Oh my Montreal
Can I dream of you tonight?
