Montana With You

Montana with you
The spring of ’02
The sky, your arms
Your eyes, so blue

Stay with me you said
Brushing my hair
Just for the summer
While I finish the book

So hasten down fall
Because I can’t leave you
Now that you need me
Now that you bleed me

Winter though, the anger
Tears ran from you
You’re sorry now
But what else could I do?

Come back you said
I’d rather be dead
Than be in
Montana without you

I’m broken
The road we traveled
Everything unraveled

There’s too much of us
And we’ll never be through
But I can’t go back
To Montana with you

Montana with you

(For Barry. Thank you for the before and after the snow in Montana pictures.)

We were rolling through the Rocky’s
We were up above the clouds
When a station out of Jackson played that song

And it seemed to fit the moment
And the moment seemed to freeze
When we turned the music up and sang along

And there was a God in Heaven
And the world made perfect sense
We were young and were in love
And we were easy to convince

We were headed straight for Eden
It was just around the bend
And though I have forgotten all about it
The song remembers when

I guess something must have happened
And we must have said goodbye
And my heart must have been broken
Though I can’t recall just why
The song remembers when

Well, for all the miles between us
And for all the time that’s past
You would think I haven’t gotten very far

And I hope my hasty heart
Will forgive me just this once
If I stop to wonder how on earth you are

But that’s just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there’s no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned

Still I guess some things we buried
Are just bound to rise again
For even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when

Yeah, and even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when
