Paris 03:33
Lately I’ve been thinking I don’t care if I live or if I die You say, “Let’s go to Paris, babe forget about your troubles in the sky.” Some things you can mend with glue or tie with bits of string Others you can try your best but it won’t do a thing Now you know that I love you You’re the only thing I ever miss But something in me is breaking, babe that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix Lately I’ve been wondering what’s the point of living, anyway? You bring me twelve pink roses say they help to melt the blues away Well something in me now has turned a darker shade than that And it’s do hard to fade a stain once it’s gone to black Now you know that I love you You’re the only thing I ever miss But something in me is aching, babe that ain’t no dozen roses gonna fix Lately I’ve been wishing for all these hopeless thoughts to leave my mind You say, “Let’s go to Paris, babe you can leave your worried head behind.” Well I have tried to outrun other sorrows in my past Funny how those demons have a way of coming back Now you know that I love you You’re the only thing I ever miss But something in me is dying, babe that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix Something in me is dying, babe that ain’t no trip to Paris gonna fix

"You need more color in your life," he said before he walked out the door Well, black and white's been fine most of the time until you realize it's all grey inside I need to find a way to start living and not just survive But I can't define something as simple as wrong or right "You've got to make up your mind," he said before he hung up the phone "'Cause if you don't yet, you'll soon have regret and then it'll be too hard to ever go home." I need to find a way to start living and not just survive But I can't define something as simple as wrong or right Right now I feel like I'm losing touch How can you tell if you what you've got will ever be enough "You should move on with your life", he said as I walked out the door "You will be fine, it only takes time for your head to figure out what your heart wants more." I need to find a way to start living and not just survive But I can't define something as simple as wrong or right
