Paris Dreamers

from by Jeff Johnson




. . .it's been the dream of my life to see Paris, France.
– From Our Town, Act 1, Thornton Wilder

I know how men in exile feed on dreams of hope.
– From Agamemnon, Aeschylus

If I could get to Paris,
I know that it would be,
So much better than this life. . .
it's obvious to me.

If I could get to anywhere,
I know that it would be,
So much better than before. . .
it's very clear to see.

Somedays it's very clear to me.
Somedays it's not so clear.
I've seen Paris once before,
Paris sounds good to me.

Dream, dream she's a dreamer,
Paris will redeem her.
Eiffel Tower Baby,
Maybe, baby , maybe. . .

You, you might think she seems a little crazy,
But if you do we'll say your thinking's hazy. . .

Paris Dreamers. . .

It's been the dream of my life to see Paris.
