I Love This Town

Listen up kid, it’s not what you think
Stayed out too late, had a little to much to drink
Walked home across the bridge, when the Marquee shut down
There’s a reason that I love this town

Nobody cares how much money you have
If you’ve got enough to get in a cab
There’ll be drinks on the house if your house burns down
There’s a reason that I love this town

I saw your band in the early days
We all understand why you moved away
But we’ll hold a grudge anyway

I shot the shit with Miniature Tim
If he needs a hit then I’ll write one for him
We like the same books and we like the same sounds
There’s a reason that I love this town

I played a show in Kelowna last year
They said, “Pick it up Joel, we’re dyin’ in here.”
Picture one hand clapping, now picture half that sound
There’s a reason that I hate that town

If you saw my band in the early days
Then you understand why we moved a way
But you’ll hold a grudge any way (because it’s fun)

Davey and me, face down in our soup
Some French restaurant outside Riviere De Loup
Last night of the tour we burnt the place to the ground
There’s a reason that I love this town
