Every side street an artery pumping life stemming from the heart of Notre-Dame,
And from up here, we’ll see eye to eye with the Eiffel tower,
As every old lane way crumbles to the power of our love,

Telling you stories from within the vaults of the Louvre,
As we held hands when the sun set and the night got colder.
