So, you said you wanted a song
To lift you from the aching of a Valentine's alone
Well I wrote you this to tell you it is done
So forget him now, forget him
He is gone

Listen, babe
If I were there today
I'd pick you up, take you by the hand, and lead you home
To a certain place that we both know
Wear your favourite summer dress and take my arm

And off in the evening we'll go
Wander beneath the marble arches, singin'

(Chorus)
The Louvre under the sun
The Louvre under the sun
Though I don't understand it at all
I feel like I've known it all along

I'm a certain kind of a guy
Who thinks you're fine, adores the freckles pinned beneath your eyes
In fact, I'd say they drive me kind of wild
And that is that and that I can't deny

So let's stay up talking far too late
I want to find the secrets that you keep from everyone else
And rest assured I know you'll know me well
Ask me anything you want, girl, and I will tell you all

The violins clear their wooden throats
Murmuring incantations
Soft and low for us
And it goes

(Chorus)
The Louvre under the sun
The Louvre under the sun
Though I don't understand it at all
I feel like I've known it all along

The Louvre under the sun
The Louvre under the sun
Though I don't understand it at all
I feel like I've known it all along

So, babe
Let's inquire a fate
And draw some straws and ask them should we leave or should we stay
But I think we know just what they're going to say
I think we know just what they're going to say

    My InterpretationHe wants to take her away from someone else who's dragging her down. He appreciates her more than other people do, those freckles that drive him wild. That is that and that he can't deny. He knows he wants her. They have a connection. They can talk for hours. They share a history. They have places & moments & memories. They share intimate details. They like the same music. A connection. Perhaps they were former lovers.

    It's clear that they have something, but they're note sure if they should be together. It's all there in plain sight, like the Louvre under the sun. But how do you really know what a work of art is trying to say? It's right there, but you don't know what it is. You have an idea, but you're not sure. She's right there, he's right there, there's something there, but what is it? And where is it going?

    Perhaps fate knows the answer. Perhaps they already do.

    God, I love this song. Haha! :)
