LYRICS
day four you hold out your hand and I'm tired enough to take it
outside our hotel room the clouds finally let go and
snow begins to fall

here in the city of light, the city of dreams
the city of love, of figuring out if that's still what it means
like a lifetime ago that we decided we should go
that it would help us finally know who we were
as if we could be
anyone else

day three we don't speak at all
we barely leave the bed that we barely share and
outside our hotel room the sound of life is deafening
I close up all the shutters

here in the city of light, the city of dreams
the city of love, of figuring out if that's still what it means
like a lifetime ago that we decided we should go
that it would help us finally know who we were
as if we could be
anyone else

day two we choose to keep pretending
we take out all our maps and circle the safest destinations
outside our hotel room our faces carefully composed
we photograph so happy

here in the city of light, the city of dreams
the city of love, of figuring out if that's still what it means
like a lifetime ago that we decided we should go
that it would help us finally know who we were
as if we could be
anyone else
anyone else

day one I hold out my hand and you tell me that you can't take it
inside our hotel room you say enough is enough is enough
and I say nothing

here in the city of light, the city of dreams
the city of love, whatever that means
a lifetime ago, when we decided we should go
like it could help us finally know who we were
as if we could be
anyone else
anyone else
anyone else
