Paris


Coming back from Paris on the train

I really didn't care if
the journey took all day.
Trying to turn the pages of my magazine
while trying to keep a hold of your hand.
And ordering a coffee
that I wouldn't ever drink.
Just to keep you and Paris on my mind.
I didn't know it would be the last time,
the last time I saw you...
At Waterloo we went
our separate ways.
When I got in my cab
I didn't turn and wave.
Didn't go to work just went to bed.
Trying to keep you and Paris on my mind.
I didn't know it would be the last time,
the last time I saw you...
I phoned your office this afternoon,
they said they hadn't
heard anything from you.
It's been... seven days without a word.
I have to keep you and Paris on my mind.
I didn't know it would be the last time,
the last time I saw you...
Going back to Paris on the train.
Raining and without you
it's... not the same.
I have to do this journey one more time,
just to keep you and Paris on my mind.
I didn't know it would be the last time.
The last time... I saw you...
Dido - Paris
