Poison racing through my veins
A sordid pull to the insane
A constant gravity to change
And I don’t know where to go

Paris breaths beneath my feet
Thirsty skin against concrete
My sacred heart misleading me
And I don’t know where to go
No, I don’t know where to go

I could go home to my love
And live the life I’ve always wanted
Or I could go on running off
Into the night, lonely and haunted
And the strange thing is
I don’t know which I prefer
As I sit here and watch the sun set on Sacre Coeur

Paris falls under my eyes
History against one life
My sacred heart’s on no-one’s side
And I don’t know where to go
No, I don’t know where to go

I could go home to my love
And live the life I’ve always wanted
Or I could go on running off
Into the night, lonely and haunted
And the strange thing is
I don’t know which I prefer
As I sit here and watch the sun set

I could go home to my love
And live the life I’ve always wanted
Or I could go on running off
Into the night, lonely and haunted
I could go home to my love
It’s all there if I want it
But the sad thing is
I don’t know which I prefer
As I sit here and watch the sun set on Sacre Coeur

    General CommentI can really picture it, she paints the scene so well. To me this song feels like being in Paris. Okay I know I don't make sense. I just love this song and the emotion it shows. And Paris.
