"Paris Night / New York Mornings" as written by and Corinne Bailey Rae....
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 Blecker no one is awake yet

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
It's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
So pick me up and take me out

Ooh we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Ooh we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that 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 â??She's not thereâ??
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's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
For each other and for the lovers

Ooh we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Ooh we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you've taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

You change and you grow
But we were young
We were young and we didn't know
We didn't know

Ooh we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Ooh we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you've taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

    General CommentShe never ceases to fail me. Her sweet, angelic, soulful & jazzy voice is so serene. Her lyrics are so powerful, I can almost relate to it. All her songs are amazing and her new album is great. I love it =)

    Paris & New York - two of the most romantic place a couple could ever visit. Listening to this song, reminds me of Paris, je t'aime and New York, I love you :) This is one of my favorite songs in her new album. This song brings a smile on my face, I love it =) <3
