  • I've never been to Paris
    But you can draw me like one of your French girls
    I dream of getting married
    You dream of traveling the world
    I've never been to Paris
    But baby, maybe that's alright
    Cause when I look at you now
    I see my own city of light

    Hold it steady, camera ready
    Three-two-one and I'm dying to expose
    We're getting older, getting poorer
    If it's something God only knows
    I think I love you
    I think I know how
    I think I want to
    That I'm ready now
    According to the script I need to edit
    I see his eyes

    I've never been to Paris
    But you can draw me like one of your french girls
    I dream of getting married
    You dream of traveling the world
    I've never been to Paris
    But baby, maybe that's alright
    Cause when I look at you now
    I see my own city of light Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
