Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


We were staying in Paris
To your parents
And I thought,
"Wow, if I could take this in a shot right now
I don't think that we could "

Out on the terrace
I don't know if it's fair but I thought
“How could I by yourself
While I'm wasted with someone else”

If we go down then we go down together
They'll say you could do anything
They'll say that I was clever
If we go down then we go down together
We'll everything
Let's show them we are better [x3]

We were staying in Paris
To your parents
You look so proud
Standing there with a frown and a cigarette
pictures of yourself on the internet

Out on the terrace
We the air of this small town
On our own cutting class for the thrill of it
Getting drunk on the past we were

If we go down then we go down together
They'll say you could do anything
They'll say that I was clever
If we go down then we go down together
We'll everything
Let's show them we are better [x8]

If we go down then we go down together
They'll say you could do anything
They'll say that I was clever
If we go down then we go down together
We'll everything
Let's show them we are better
We were staying in Paris (If we go down) [x5]
Let's show them we are better [x5]
