Track Name: Toronto Part I
listen, winter's coming
i heard it on the streets
the passengers aren't smiling
as i take a seat

i visit vinyl stores
pretend i know the names
of local bands, and hold my own hands
while travelling on subway trains

i'm running down the Danforth
crushed paper in my hands
it's got words that tell my fortune
you gotta understand
cause she said i've got to stay here
but it's not gone as planned
don't make me come home
don't make me come home

i'm living with a psycho
who never leaves the house
and i'm working for a pittance
i'm playing cat and mouse

i climbed the CN Tower
in search of something sane
and saw the sun, rotating
but in Edinburgh i knew that there'd be rain

and moons don't give you nothing
they're just rocks that float through space
so i ask the stars, what am i doing here?
what drove me to this place?

i'm running down the Danforth
crushed paper in my hands
it's got words that tell my fortune
mum, dad, you don't understand
cause she said i've got to stay here
but it's not gone as planned
don't make me come home
don't make me come home
Track Name: Toronto Part II
i left your house this morning
the day before my flight
you said a little something
half-excuses for goodbye

it was raining on your doorstep
you kissed me on my eyes
as if i couldn't see the way you looked at me
in the middle of the night

i took a cab that evening
and turned to look behind
saw the CN Tower
blinking like an eye

you called me at the airport
but i didn't have the time
i had a panic then as they called my name
you're boarding up in five

and i'm running down the hallway
my ticket's in my hand
did i meet you by accident
or did it all go just as planned?

i'm at my house this morning
it's been the same for years
and now the change is never-changing
for several months i'm here

are you standing on your doorstep
wonder if you want me near
am i a memory?
am i too good to be?
will you call before i disappear?
