In Paris and in Rome
And in places far from home
From the mountains to the sea
To wherever the road may lead

I wonder where you'll go
Will the sun shine if you go?
There's all the world to know
Just beyond the things we know

Don't be lonely now
If you can try to be brave
Maybe the sun will come back
To wash your tears away

In Paris and in Rome
Or wherever you may roam
From the mountains to the sea
Just as long as you're with me

I wonder where you'll go
Will the sun shine if you go?
There's all the world to know
Just beyond the things we know

I'll always remember
The things that we said
The things that we dreamed
And the world we nearly had

    General CommentCranes always turns out high quality alternative music, but this is a beautiful and haunting song even among their stellar selection. The lyrics are simple and easy to interpret but the music itself carries a lot of weight. It's a shame more people don't know about this group.

    General CommentYeah, i would have thought their popularity would have been inevitable after they supported The Cure (handpicked by self confessed fan Rob Smith).

    They make beautiful atmospheric music and Alison's voice is simply breathtaking.

    General CommentThis song goes on my list of "songs that give me chills". But I didn't know the meaning till I found the lyrics. It's bittersweet farewell is so powerful, by the music, yet so subtle in phrase. SOOO good.
