  • Lyrics
  • One day you will come to Montauk
    And you will see your dad wearing a kimono
    And see your other dad pruning roses
    Hope you won’t turn around and go
    One day you will come to Montauk
    And see your dad playing the piano
    And see your other dad wearing glasses
    Hope that you will want to stay
    For a while
    Don’t worry, I know you'll have to go

    One day you will come to Montauk
    And see your dad trying to be funny
    And see your other dad seeing through me
    Hope that you will protect your dad

    One day you will come to Montauk
    And see your dad trying to be evil
    And see your other dad feeling lonely
    Hope that you will protect him

    You have stayed
    Don’t worry, I know you have to go

    One day years ago in Montauk
    Lived a woman, now a shadow
    But she does wait for us in the ocean
    And although you want to stay
    For a while
    Don’t worry, we all have to go

    One day you will come to MontaukWriter/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
