    Petty Troubles is a live orchestral pop album featuring the songs of Matt Montgomery, orchestrated by Brian Adam McCune, and produced by Brendan West. Petty Troubles is also the title of the companion documentary, directed by Isaac Pingree, that chronicles the process, perks, and pitfalls of recording an independent album live in one day with 30 Bay Area musicians. Though risky by design and imperfect by nature, we are extremely proud of the results. We hope that you’ll enjoy our labor of love.

lyrics

Intent on sleeping in
just another year
Throw the clock and daydream
Autumn's getting near
The leaves that fall
will cover all
Block out the rain
Block out the sunshine

I'm comfortable right here
Oh I'm comfortable right here
Don't take me from my fortress on the hill
I've worked to hard to turn back
so until the time is right
I think that might stay here for a while

Towers form surrounding
Brambles twigs and leaves
A Thousand Years forgotten
No one needs to grieve
The leaves that fall
will cover all
Block out the rain
Block out the sunshine

I'm comfortable right here
Oh I'm comfortable right here
Don't take me from my fortress on the hill
I've worked to hard to turn back
so until the time is right
I think that might stay here for a while

Open the door for me
Let in the misery
Let in the sun to see
Winter's almost here and I'm hungry again

Block out the rain
Block out the sunshine
Block out the rain
Block out the sunshine
No More
