      Lyrics for John Denver - "Postcards From Paris (Wish You Were Here)"

      Dear friend of my mine
      Weather's fine
      Today, I saw some ruins
      Of the Roman world's decline

      And I climbed all those Spanish steps
      You've heard of them no doubt
      But Rome has lost its glory
      I don't know what it's about

      I wish you were here
      When the shadows fall
      And all the rushing traffic's still

      I wish you were here
      When the bells are ringing
      On the seven hills

      I make my way to a small cafe
      I wonder what you did today
      Wish you were here

      Dear one at home
      I just flew in from Rome
      Paris is a postcard
      All decked out in color chrome

      And so, I climbed the Eiffel Tower
      And prayed at Notre Dame
      But I just can't find the romance
      And I wonder why I came

      I wish you were here
      On the Champs Elysee's
      Lovers walk hand in hand

      I wish you were here
      They take one look at me
      And seem to understand

      This city of light is a lovely site
      The first bright star I see tonight
      Wish you were here

      Now, I write this from the plane
      Drinking cheap champagne
      And wondering why
      Two people got so far apart

      I wish you were here
      Here in London
      Where the rain the pouring down

      I wish you were here
      On this airplane
      Headed back to New York Town

      I'll never leave you alone again
      I'm coming home but until then
      Wish you were here

      I wish you were here
      Wish you were here
