Downtown Epilogue
(J. Clements / R. Clements)

Because I knew I couldn't stay
I burst that door and walked away.
Now lighter, and on my way.
The sun, gold as a coronet,
The traffic hum a string quartet,
The music, no sorry or regret,
An open sky.
And then I saw you downtown that night.

Among the endless market stalls,
The busy, winding streets of Montreal,
So much noise, just like no noise at all,
I'd said goodbye,
And then I saw you downtown that night.
