"Paris" as written by Bradley Baker, Thomas Cohen, Sam Kilcoyne, Melissa Rigby and Huw Webb....
One day we're gonna live in Paris
I promise, I'm on it
When I'm bringing in the money
I promise, I'm on it

I'm gonna take you out to club showcase
We're gonna live it up
I promise
Just hold on a little more

And every night we'll watch the stars
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us

One day we're gonna live in Paris
I promise, I'm on it
I'll find you that French boy
You'll find me that French girl
I promise, I'm on it

So go and pack your bags for the long haul
We're gonna lose ourselves
I promise
This time it's you and me for evermore

And every night we'll watch the stars
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us

And every night we'll watch the stars
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They'll be out for us, they'll be out for us

    My InterpretationIn reference to the lines:
    "I'll find you that French boy,
    You'll find me that French girl"

    My feeling is that they aren't literally meaning that they'll find each other *another* boy / girl. Instead, I interpret them as being more like "I'll find a French boy inside myself for you, and you'll find me a French girl inside of yourself".

    The line shortly afterwards "We're gonna lose ourselves" would go along with this, suggesting that they're going to lose their old personalities, in favour, perhaps, of this French ideal of a romantic couple.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song from a man to a woman. They're going through hard times, but he loves her so much that he can stay strong for her. So strong in fact that he can promise her it will be over one day and good things and happiness are just around the corner. He just needs her to stay strong and patient for him too. Paris could be Paris literally, but it could also just represent all that he wants to and knows he will give to her one day...
    By the way, there's a different version of it sung by a woman. It's absolutely stunning! It's called the aeroplane remix.

    General Commentlike Ed says most of their songs are just about escapism, not real world stuff because music is meant to be where you go to get away from all that stuff. I love the lines 'And every night we'll watch the stars, They'll be out for us, They'll be out for us, And every night, the city lights, They'll be out for us, They'll be out for us'

    My Interpretationsusiesutt is on the right track with this.

    "I promise-
    Just hold on a little more-"

    These lyrics right here really say what's going on in this song. The songwriter is saying to this person to hold on a little more. It's like a desperate attempt to try to keep her with him. The songwriter is trying desperately to promise the world, knowing that they can't provide it now, and it almost seems as if this person they're singing this to is about to leave. The fact that the words "I promise" are said over and over, it really shows the desperation in this guy's voice.

    The melancholy message really stands out in the Aeroplane remix, give it a listen!

    General CommentThis is the definition of an anthem
    I love this band so much, they are going places!!
    Yeah pretty much agree with everyone else, it's about looking to the future and believing you can get to where you want to be i.e. Paris =]

    anyone else reminded of Klaxons on the vocals?

    General CommentYES, finally someone has put up these lyrics. I love this song, I love this band. The message is pretty straightforward, they want to go to Paris or at least have hope to get away from their old lives.
