about

We may try to run away from our problems, but they tend to follow us. I turn and see you there...even though you're 5,000 miles away.

lyrics

Paris Café

It was my first day in Paris
I didn’t know a soul on the Seine
So I wandered up and down the streets
Hoping I’d forget your name
I drank a glass of Muscat
And ate some reblochon
But everywhere I turned
I felt that you were gone

Chorus:
Why did you have to say goodbye?
Why did you have to leave that day?
I thought we had the best in life
But life got in our way.
You finally closed the door
And left me standing there
With nothing left for me to do or say--
That’s why I’m in this French café

It was my first night in Paris
The lights all glowed like pearls
And everywhere I looked I saw
Those pretty Paris girls.
But I just walked right by them
And toward the Notre Dame
Hoping that this big ol’ church
Would take away my pain

Chorus:
Why did you have to say goodbye?
Why did you have to leave that day?
I thought we had the best in life
But life got in our way
You finally closed the door
And left me stranded there
With nothing left for me to do or say--
That’s why I’m in this French café

Bridge:
How many times have you been on my mind?
I couldn’t count the memories left behind.

Repeat 1st Chorus
Tag:
With nothing left for me to do or say--
That’s why I’m in this French café
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.
