Back to Paris Nights And New York Mornings lyrics

Paris Nights/ New York Mornings

Breakfast at Mickey's, make up still on
Elbows on the greasy table cloth
One more coffee and one last cigarette

Smiling at the rain 'cause you hold me close
My best dress on underneath this old coat
Walking down Bleecker, no one is awake yet

I know in seven hours, nothing but clouds
It is enough to make your heart sigh
Though we should try
Pick me up and take me out

Ooh, ooh, we crash into love filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Ooh, ooh, we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings, oh yeah

Ooh, ooh, you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down, don't let me down

I could see the lights from the restaurant
I couldn't quite perfect that nonchalance
Paris and champagne with one brown sugar cube

And we danced while the band played, 'She's not there'
Kissed me in the rain by the Rue Voltaire
It's a perfectly good way to ruin those silk shoes

Still seven hours, nothing but clouds
It is enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
For each other and for the lovers

Ooh, ooh, we crash into love filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Ooh, ooh, we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings, oh yeah

Ooh, ooh, you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down, don't let me down, oh

Ooh, you change and you grow
But we were young
But we were young and we didn't know
We didn't know, oh, oh

Ooh, ooh, we crash into love filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Ooh, ooh, we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings, oh yeah

Ooh, ooh, you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down, don't let me down

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down
