In Paris - Nicolas a Lestat - lyrics

playlist Playlist
NICOLAS
Listen to me, let me speak of
Wondrous works of art,
That dwell within that fabled city,
Its architecture fills my heart.
Let me tell you I have seen
Where great ideas are born,
Illuminating all the darkness
In the corners of the world.
Ask of me, I will tell you...
Let your conscience be your guide.
There's nothing but a hellhole here
While Paris waits, your virgin bride.
LESTAT
Is it true, were you once a pupil
Of the great Mozart?
NICOLAS
It's true, but I was hopeless then
Clumsy as a horse and cart.
LESTAT
Could it be I dreamt so long
To act upon the stage and sing.
The footlights smoking at my feet
As curtains rise like velvet wings.
NICOLAS
Come with me, let me show you
The opera and the comedy,
The Latin Quarter where the girls
Are raven haired and fancy free.
LESTAT
You'll play the dashing rogues
And infiltrate the grand salons
And walk in wonder through the Louvre
Across the Seine to the Sorbonne.
NICOLAS
In cafes we will feed our heads
With absinthe and philosophy.
Engage the students of Voltaire
And damn the aristocracy.
LESTAT
In Paris the bells of Notre Dame ring out,
In Paris we'll trade our soft voices for shout.
I'll not rest until the ramparts of that city
Stand before us bright and clear.

Penniless in Paris is better than the life we're leading here.
NICOLAS
In Paris we'll search for fame.
LESTAT
In Paris we'll be born again.
OBA
And though the streets aren't paved with gold...
In Paris we'll put our trust.
NICOLAS
Paris, she was made for us.
LESTAT
Paris, she was made for us.
BOTH
In Paris we will liberate our souls.
LESTAT
I've heard that there's infernal noise,
The stench and cut-throats out to rob,
The hungry crowds that fill the street
Where anarchy consumes the mob.
NICOLAS
We'll rent a room above the din,
Somewhere along the Boulevard
And find employment on the stage,
The unwashed mass we'll disregard.
And bright you'll shine, a brand new star.
LESTAT
You will play the violin!
We'll take the city by the throat...
NICOLAS
And revel in it's glorious sin.
{.....mluví se....}
BOTH
In Paris the bells of Notre Dame ring out,
In Paris we'll trade our soft voices for shout.
I'll not rest until the ramparts of that city,
Stand before us bright and clear.

Penniless in Paris is better than the life we're leading here.
In Paris we'll search for fame,
In Paris we'll be born again.
And though the streets
aren't paved with gold.
In Paris we'll put our trust,
For Paris, she was made for us,
Paris, she was made for us.
In Paris we will liberate our souls...
