  • She said hello, she was letting me know
    We shared friends in Soho
    She is a pain in the nose
    And I'm a pain in women's clothes
    And you're a walking overdose in a great coat

    And so she wrote a plan for it on the back of a fag packet
    She had to leave because she couldn't hack it
    Not a lot of noise and too much racket
    I think I've spent all my money and your friends, oh

    But how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)
    Oh, how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)

    Mr. Serotonin Man, lend me a gram
    You call yourself a friend?
    I got two left feet and I'm starting to cheat
    On my girlfriend again
    I caught a pinky in her nose
    As the crowd cheered for an overdose
    And I don't suppose you know where this train goes
    There was a party that she had to miss
    Because her friend kept cutting her wrists
    Hyperpoliticized sexual trysts
    Oh, I think my boyfriend's a nihilist
    I said, hey kids we're all just the same
    What a shame

    Ya know, how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)
    And how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)

    Oh stop being an asshole
    And counting my eye rolls
    And like pistols falls in the snow
    Uh oh
    Keeping paying the tab on my half
    Man you putting me up on a shelf
    Well I believed you're clean
    But only I've seen your fist for myself

    And then she pointed at a bag of her dreams
    In a well posh magazine
    I said I'm done, babe I'm out of the scene,
    But I was picking up from Bethnal Green
    She said I've been romanticizing heroin

    And oh how I'd love to go to Paris, to Paris again (again, again, again and again)
    And how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)
    And how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again)
    And how I'd love to go to Paris again (again, again, again and again) Writer/s: Adam Brian Thomas Hann, George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald
