Let's Get Lost In This City

VOLUME THREE


My wife and I took a very short trip to Paris a few years back because we found cheap tickets from DC (which is basically the only way we like to travel). It was the week before Christmas and it was our first time going together. We averaged 11 miles a day walking for the 4 days we were there. We stayed up late and ate French food and drank French wine. We explored all over the city. I remember being impressed by how she walked around in these long black boots that had heels. I was wearing normal shoes and my feet hurt. Paris is magic. Paris is dirty and beautiful. I think seeing things for the first time with someone you love changes the perspective entirely. You are experiencing it together and that makes all the difference. We flew home feeling like we left too soon and drove from Baltimore to Bowling Green, OH for my family Christmas. It was like... were we really just there? Was that just a dream?





LYRICS

Let's get lost in this city

Pretend it's ours for the night

December's bleak

And cold as you know

So lets stay close

In this city of lights


Mm mm mm

Mm mm mm


Dancing down these dark allies

Who knows what we will find

To be wealthy and live on the river

How is Paris so beautiful

In this light


Let's get lost in this city

Let's get lost tonight

Let's get lost in this city

Let's get lost tonight


Mm mm mm

Mm mm mm


We have hours til dawn

As they say the night it is young

Follow me in your high heel boots

And I'll show you the city of love


If we lose our way

Maybe we could stay

I'll sing to you in French

Mon Cheri

Quand j'apprends à parler français


Mm mm mm


Allons nous perds a Paris

Allons nous perdon ce soir

Allons nous perds a Paris

Allons nous perdon ce soir

Let's get lost in this city

Allons nous perdon ce soir


Mm mm mm

Mm mm mm
