Story Behind the Song

...near and dear to my heart. This was my first ever co-write, first ever demo by a Nashville studio and one of Molly's last songs she wrote before she passed. She was so thrilled with my melody and I was very nervous, having never co-written a song before. I'll never forget ringing her doorbell, walking into her house, sitting down at her piano, and playing "what I had come up with" and then seeing that smile on her face when she heard it, and the feeling that landed in my soul. We shared such joy in the heart that's in this lyric. I'll never forget the experiences with this song. So special on so many levels - rest in peace, Molly Finkle.

Lyrics

PARIS IN YOUR EYES
by Betsy Walter & Molly Finkle

we dreamed about Paris
young lovers that's us
but then we found a honeymoon cottage
and we'll have to go by greyhound bus

who needs the world
when we've got you and me
there'll be lots of time for lovin'
and makin' memories

WHEN I HOLD YOU IN MY LOVIN' ARMS
ALL I NEED IN THIS WORLD WILL BE MINE
WE'LL LIGHT A CANDLE WHEN THE SHADOWS FALL
AND I'LL SEE PARIS, PARIS IN YOUR EYES

we've worked for all these years
now our dream can come true
and you say you'd like to fly away
but there's one thing I'd rather do

let's give ourselves a night
at our honeymoon hideaway
just the two of us together
making one more memory

WHEN I HOLD YOU IN MY LOVIN' ARMS
ALL I NEED IN THIS WORLD WILL BE MINE
WE'LL LIGHT A CANDLE WHEN THE SHADOWS FALL
AND I'LL SEE PARIS, PARIS IN YOUR EYES

We'll light a candle when the shadows fall
and I'll see Paris, Paris in your eyes
Paris in your eyes
I'll see Paris in your eyes
