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
        G
Could I let you fall by yourself
             Em7
While I'm wasted with someone else

If we go down then we go down together

To get away from your parents, you look so proud
         G    
Standing there with a frown and a cigarette
        Em7
Posting pictures of yourself on the internet

           F
Out on the terrace
                  Am
We breathe in the air of this small town
          G
On our own, cuttin’ class for the thrill of it
           Em7
Getting drunk on the past we were livin’ in
