What have the artists said about the song?

“Paris” was written in Stockholm (although we had just visited Paris days before) late one night after a show. It started with the lyrics, ‘we were staying and Paris’ and unfolded from there. The lyrics may seem vague at first, but their inspiration comes from a real place. Drew had a friend from the East coast who had been struggling with a drug addiction for the past few years. He was a childhood friend and their families were close, so his parents kept him informed on how he was doing. He and Drew would keep in touch on Facebook chat but would never speak about what he was going through, but meanwhile Drew knew of all the craziness that surrounded his friend’s life. We used Paris as a metaphor to convey that he felt like he was in a place where everything was fine, while being acutely aware of other people’s concern for him. Paris always being this romantic idealized place, the song is about escaping your reality, a reality often void of excitement and in your mind being somewhere else with someone else.

The Chainsmokers 他們自己怎麼說這首歌...?

“Paris”這首歌是我們在斯德哥爾摩(我們在來這的前幾天才剛拜訪過巴黎)演出後的一晚寫出來的。這首歌是從‘we were staying and Paris’ 這句歌詞開始的,而一切也從巴黎展開。歌詞一開始看起來可能有點迷茫,不過這些靈感是來自於一個真的地       方。Drew 有個在東海岸的朋友,他過去幾年一直身陷於藥物上癮的問題。他是Drew的青梅竹馬,兩家的關係也很好,所以他爸媽也有持續跟Drew說最近他過的如何。他跟 Drew 一直有在臉書上保持聯絡,但從來都不會提起自己最近遇到什麼困難之類的, 但其實一直以來Drew都知道那些在他身邊發生的瘋狂的事。我們用巴黎當作一種隱喻,就像Drew的朋友覺得他呆的地方一切都很好,但同時也知道身邊的人其實都一直在不斷關心他。巴黎一種都是一個代表浪漫理想的地方,這首歌是關於逃避現實,現實常常沒有什麼太大的起伏,但在我們腦中,卻常常想著要和另一個人一起到某一個地方。

[Verse 1: Andrew Taggart]

We were staying in Paris

我們留在巴黎

To get away from your parents

為了遠離你的父母

And I thought, “Wow

而我想 “哇

If I could take this in a shot right now

如果現在我能將這一刻留下該有多好

I don't think that we could work this out”

但我不覺得我們這樣做有多大的用處

Out on the terrace

站在陽台外

I don't know if it's fair but I thought “How

我不知道這公不公平但我想

Could I let you fall by yourself

“我怎麼能讓你一個人墮落

While I'm wasted with someone else?”

而我卻在外跟其他人浪費時間?”

 

[Chorus: Andrew Taggart & Emily Warren]

If we go down then we go down together

如果要沉淪那我們就一起沉淪吧

They'll say you could do anything

他們說你能做你想做的事

They'll say that I was clever

他們說我很聰明

If we go down then we go down together

如果要墮落的話我們就一起墮落吧

We'll get away with everything

我們會遠離一切塵囂

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的還要好

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的要好

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的要好

 

[Verse 2: Andrew Taggart]

We were staying in Paris

我們待在巴黎

To get away from your parents

為了遠離你的父母

You look so proud

你看起來高傲

Standing there with a frown and a cigarette

卻又愁眉苦臉的叼著菸站在那

Posting pictures of yourself on the Internet

不斷在社群網站上放上自己的照片

Out on the terrace

站在陽台外

We breathe in the air of this small town

我們呼吸著這小鎮的空氣

On our own, cuttin' class for the thrill of it

感覺就像我們以前為了刺激感翹課一樣

Getting drunk on the past, we were livin' in

像以前一樣在我們住的地方喝到醉爛

 

[Chorus: Andrew Taggart & Emily Warren]

If we go down then we go down together

如果要沈迷於此我們就一起沈迷吧

They'll say you could do anything

If we go down then we go down together

[Bridge: Andrew Taggart & Emily Warren]

We were staying in Paris (If we go down)

我們就像這樣留在巴黎(就算我們沈迷於此)

We were staying in Paris (If we go down)

我們就像這樣留在巴黎(就算我們因此沉淪)

We were staying in Paris (If we go down)

就算我們搞砸一切

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的要好

If we go down

就算我們是在逃避現實

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的要好

Let's show them we are better

讓他們看看我們比他們想的要好
