Paris - The Chainsmokers




The Experience: If we go down then then we go down together... If you could only keep one thing, would it be your relationship...


Music video: A girl wakes up heaven-bound as her house floats up into the clouds. But down below is the city she loves and the people she loves - the Chainsmokers. And she picks them over a lonely happiness.

The Meaning of Paris: If you had to pick one thing that defines who you are - would it be your relationship? That's what Paris offers. Love - Paris - over rules - to get away from your parents. Love over school - cuttin' class. Love over success - if we go down then we go down together. Love over everything because commitment to the person you care about is what matters most - let's show them we are better. Great message with one weak point - we don't always have to choose between rules, family, knowledge... and love. If we do, then it's worth wondering if something about our love might be off.

Ask yourself: Are you all in when it comes to love? Is your love right?

LYRICS:

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

Out on the terrace
I don't know if it's fair but I thought, "How could I let you fall 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 get away with everything
Let's show them we are better
Let's show them we are better
Let's show them we are better

We were staying in Paris
To get away from your parents
You look so proud standing there with a frown and a cigarette
Posting pictures of yourself on the Internet

Out on the terrace
We breathe in the air of this small town
On our own cuttin' class for the thrill of it
Getting drunk on the past we were livin' in

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 get away with everything
Let's show them we are better

Let's show them we are
Show them we are
Show them we are
Show them we are
Let's show them we are better

We were staying in Paris

Let's show them we are better
Let's show them we are
Show them we are
Show them we are
Show them we are
Let's show them we are better

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 get away with everything
Let's show them we are better

We were staying in Paris (if we go down)
We were staying in Paris (if we go down)
We were staying in Paris (if we go down)
We were staying in Paris (if we go down)
Let's show them we are better
We were staying in Paris

Let's show them we are better
Let's show them we are better
If we go down
Let's show them we are better
If we go down
Let's show them we are better
If we go down
Let's show them we are better
Let's show them we are better
