Take Me to Paris, sometimes just called Paris though it is registered on ASCAP as the former, is an unreleased leaked track. It is believed to be an outtake from the Born to Die album....
Baby, say goodnight; text me when you get home safely
Like you always did when we was first dating.

You're sitting in your office, dreaming of a different life;
You say you wanna make me smile and see my wild side.
If we don't leave town now, we're never gonna get out of here alive.
I'm walking home from school, my thoughts are drifting into space;
Why don't we leave tonight and take off to a different place?
Don't tell my daddy why, gotta get on that plane and just fly.

Take me to Paris,
Let's go there and never look back.
Paris, we can be crazy like that.
You're such a naughty boy!
Why you taking that Polaroid?
Put on a show you'll enjoy,
Take me to Paris.

I wanna be that fantasy that you got on your mind;
Flying across the sea to somewhere that they'll never find.
We should go out while we young, 'cause one day, we will want to rewind.

Our time in Paris, take me to Yves Saint Laurent.
Paris, make out in a dark restaurant.
We'll dance until we die, wanna go out every night;
Promise we won't say goodbye.

Take me to Paris,
Let's go there and never look back.
Paris, we can be crazy like that.
You're such a naughty boy!
Why you taking that Polaroid?
Put on a show you'll enjoy,
Take me to Paris.

Walking through the streets at dawn, we dance by empty carousels,
Singing about the Sacré-Cœur, and climbing up the Tour Eiffel.
Under the stars, we are, we are dreaming.

You're such a naughty boy!
Why you taking that Polaroid?
Put on a show you'll enjoy,
Take me to Paris, take me to Yves Saint Laurent.
Paris, make out in a dark restaurant.
We'll dance until we die, wanna go out every night;
Promise we won't say goodbye.

Baby, say goodnight; text me when you get home safely
Like you always did when we was first dating.

    General CommentThis song is so cute but I really like it. I wonder why it was cut from Born to Die, hope they release it in the near future.

    General CommentTwo young people, she seems like she's young enough to still be in school and living with her parents so I'm guessing she's like 17 and he's out of school so 20 or in his 20's(She said they were young). She wants them to run away to Paris together, they don't have to tell anyone, she just feels as if she doesn't get away from this place, she'll die. They should do everything they can while they're young cause one day they'll reminisce. They'll see all the sights, and he's such a bad boy for actually doing it with her, and taking pictures with her off guard. After he drops her off back home, when he arrives at his house she wants him to text her that he's made it safely, like when they first started seeing each other.
