"MISSIN' SWEET PARIS ON A RAINY DAY" [2014]


No hope 

I’m lost in some old French town 

Tryin’ to ride thumb 

To Berlin from Calais 

The truckers, they just laugh and pass 

So merry on their way 

Now I’m missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day 


Lungs choked 

In bed in Barcelona 

My mates ask 

I say that I’m okay 

The doctor, when he hears my heart 

He tells me it’s in pain 

Now I’m missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day 


You think you know it 

’Til you’re sleepin’ in a park 

You think you know it 

’Til they’re stealin’ your guitar 

You think you’re lonely 

’Til you’re half a world away 

And you’re missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day 


Clothes soaked 

I cry on Curry Mile 

Beat down 

Defeated in dismay 

The Manc boys, they heckle me 

And send me far astray 

Now I’m missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day 


You think you know it 

’Til you’re sleepin’ in a park 

You think you know it 

’Til they’re stealin’ your guitar 

You think you’re lonely 

’Til you’re half a world away 

And you’re missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day 


Dead broke 

I’m stuck in Southeast London 

Locked out 

Beneath clouds so dark and gray 

I call Jeanne just to talk 

Although, I don’t have much to say 

Just that I’m missin’ sweet Paris on a rainy day
