The Front Bottoms – Montgomery Forever Lyrics

Montgomery Forever By The Front Bottoms

I got into bed with my girlfriend
It was a stranger’s bed
We fell asleep for four hours
When we woke up, we went downstairs
And said sorry (“sorry”, “sorry”)
No one was mad
We walked all the way home after that

I am the victim of a scam
Soft shape, hard cast

‘Cause we used to live here (’cause we used to live here)
And now they’re blowing it up (now they’re blowing it up)
You started crying (you started crying)
As I was blowing it up

Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up
Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up

Hey!
Hey!

I can’t imagine
Not being able to trust myself
You and your mental illness
Whole time think I’m someone else
I shot the gun
You smashed your face in
It wasn’t fun (it wasn’t fun)
Until we could taste it

‘Cause we used to live here
And now they’re blowing it up (now they’re blowing it up)
You started crying (you started crying)
As I was blowing it up (as I was blowing it up)

Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up
Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up
As you started crying, and laughing, and trying
To explain how all you wanna do is leave
Montgomery forever
And now they’re blowing it up

Montgomery forever
Montgomery forever

‘Cause I am the victim of a scam
Soft shape, hard cast
I am the virus, here and now
Focus on that, zone it out
Zone it out
Zone it out

Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up
Montgomery forever, and ever, and ever
Now they’re blowing it up
As you started crying, and laughing, and trying
To explain how all you wanna do is leave
Montgomery forever
And now they’re blowing it up

Hey!
Hey!

Hi. Can you hear me?
Yeah.
Can you hit middle C?
It’s cool. You can play.

I am on no drugs at the moment.
I would pass any drug test you could give me.
Like an itch, you’re a tick. You don’t even exist.
I understand why you had to ditch me. You fell in love with someone else.
And a long time ago, I promised that if you were happy, then I was happy. Nothing else to talk about.
