Paris in the Rain
by Lauv

Album: I Met You When I Was 18 (The Playlist) (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Lauv considers this love story set in Paris to be the most romantic song he's released to date. He told Billboard it was inspired by one of his favorite films.

    "I love sappy ass movies," Lauv said with a laugh. "The first time I watched it, I was like, 'Yo, I'm gonna write a song inspired by this movie.' And then the second time I watched the movie, that's when I got the concept of how I was going to write it. I picked up the guitar and wrote the song."
