Lyrics

We've met before in Paris rain
A foreign affair, a passenger train
Exchanging words, we walked separate ways
But we would meet again at a side-street café

I realize that just a matter of time stood between you and I
But I could not wait around another night
And I held back, telling you that I had to leave the very next day
No regrets, just the pain when we kissed good-bye

I can't alight the final flame
Fire reflection upon the champagne
Your long blonde hair and fair-skinned face
I remember so well, but forget your name

I realize that just a matter of time stands between you and I
I could not wait around another night
And I held back, telling you that I had to leave the very next day
No regrets, just the pain when we kissed good-bye

I feel the pain calling your name
Standing in the Paris rain
On this night, I realize, I still forget your name
