Paris Texas Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been waiting for you
To come to my room, my room
I've been waiting so long
I feel like I'm doomed, I'm doomed (hey)

310, my area code
Is not too far from your phone (oh, whoa)
310, just call my phone
Wherever you feel alone (oh, whoa)

310, my area code
Is not too far from your phone (oh whoa)
310, just call my phone
Wherever you feel alone (oh whoa)

You've been on my mind all night, all night
You've been on my mind all night, all night

You've been on my mind (it's gotta mean somethin'
All night, all night (don't leave me with nothin')
(It's gotta mean somethin')
You've been on my mind (it's gotta mean somethin)
(Don't leave me with nothin')
All night, all night (it's gotta mean somethin')
(Don't leave me with nothin') Hey

310, my area code
Is not too far from your phone
310, just call my phone
Wherever you feel alone (hey)

310, my area code
Is not too far from your phone




310, just call my phone
Wherever you feel alone
