Lyrics

If I asked that boy to jump, I know he would
He don't even have to say, it's understood
He treat me nice, he treat me right, he treat me good
Still I get so hesitant, still I get so hesitant
So I took myself where I think I should be
Something told me that it's waiting here for me
Parisian nights, Parisian high, Parisian breeze
Feeding me like medicine, feeding me like medicine, yeah

It's so romantic in Paris
Won't even try to compare it
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A.
It's so romantic in Paris
Won't even try to compare it
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A.
Yeah, I already have love in L.A.

If you show me too much love, it makes me leave (Makes me leave)
Guess that's one of many things that's wrong with me (That's wrong with me)
Looking past you when you're right in front of me
I won't do that anymore, I won't do that anymore (Anymore)
Why'd it take so long for me to know this? (Know this)
Scared to put the water with the roses (Roses)
Halfway 'cross the world for me to notice
But I notice, yeah, I notice, yeah

It's so romantic in Paris
Won't even try to compare it
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A.
It's so romantic in Paris
Won't even try to compare it
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A.

Je ne voulais pas trouver l'amour
Mais Paris a quelque chose
Qui donne envie d'aimer, d'aimer passionnément
Mon cœur est à toi pour toujours
You will always have my heart

It's so romantic in Paris
Won't even try to compare it
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A. (Already have love)
It's so romantic in Paris (So romantic in Paris)
Won't even try to compare it (I know that I try)
Thought I was sure that I'd find it
But I already have love in L.A.
It's so romantic in Paris, babe
Won't even try to compare it (Won't even try, won't even try)
Thought I was sure that I'd find it (Thought I was sure, I was sure)
But I already have love in L.A.
But I already have love in L.A.

Trivia

  • This is Carpenter's first song to feature bilingual lyrics, with a bridge in French. It translates to "I didn't want to find love / But there is something about Paris / That makes you want to love, and love passionately / You will always have my heart".
  • On March 2, 2018, seven months before the release of the song, Carpenter posted three photos in Paris, France: one with the caption "it's so romantic in Paris"[2] and another with a rose emoji (🌹)[3]. These were both references to lines in the song.
