about

In response to the high demand from his fans for a stripped down, acoustic album of his songs new and old, Paris recorded WE. Since he tours mostly as a solo-artist, WE is a sweet representation of his solo-shows and live performances for yoga classes which capture his raw talent and roots: acoustic guitar, warm vocals, potent lyrics & feel-good melodies.

Track Name: Lay the Day Away (Acoustic)
Lay the Day Away

Early morning, I catch you smiling
Curling up closer beside me,
The dawn has gone, has gone, has gone away

The tree outside strokes the window
The leaves caress it slowly oh so slow
Somehow they figured out
That I can’t let you go

CHORUS:
So, beneath this blanket of
Our sturdy and nurtured, nurtured love
Phones and our lives unplugged
We’ll just lay the day away

The city keeps racing time
While you and I, we unwind
Tangled up, intertwined
We’ll just lay the day away
We’ll just lay the day away

So we lay on through the morning
Ignore alarms and all the warnings
And let the world outside just flutter by

You steal my plans and make me yours
We spend our day with all we want and more
Take our love to the bedroom floor
Saying I won’t let you go

CHORUS

Bridge:
Cuz with our arms
Yea with our hearts we hold our world
And there is nothing more we need
So we’ll just stay here, yea we’ll just lay…

CHORUS
Away x4
Track Name: Your Love is Home (Acoustic)
“Your love is home”

Slow, slow, slow, let go
Make yourself comfortable
Your walls were caving in, I’m told
At your old house

But now we’re here
Finally finding love beneath our fear
The waves flow out, I pull you near
It seems that we’ve arrived
Arrived, arrived

CHORUS:
I grabbed the cornerstone
Left the house on its own
Crumbling to the bone
Your love is home
Your love is home

Yea I grabbed the cornerstone
Left the house all alone
From the heart to the bone
Your love is home
Your love is home

So, so, so, we know
It wasn’t so long ago
Our hearts were windows frozen closed
Closed beneath the sun

But through the cracks
All the light would drift it’s way on past
And scatter down onto the floor
Leaving us wanting more
And more and more and more

BRIDGE:
Yea this new home
Was built by our very own
Sturdy, sturdy, sturdy, sturdy love

CHORUS
Track Name: Dreams (Acoustic)
Dreams

When these eyes close
Minds, they will run
From the insanity
And the beautiful things

And when these eyes close
A darkness may come to sing
Yet it may sing brighter,
Like the other side always brings

And when these eyes close
Minds they will drift away
Oh they will drift away
Like a boat on the ocean
A sail left open

Ohh, drifting
Returning when wishing
Got no time constraints but those running through the mind
Ohhh but soon, soon to come on home
And see the morning sun
Say that it’s all begun

Chorus:
Lively, lively your spirits love
I see you crying there, now, what are you dreaming of?
Lively, lively your spirits love
I see you smiling there, now, what are you dreaming of?
Dream, dream dream, dream on, dream (x2)


Oh my son rises so, ohh so late you see
To escape the pains he faces, and we
Come by in these lives that we live and flee
Beyond the misery, beyond the mystery

On a flower, she wishes for all she’s got
“He loves me, he loves me not”
Just to grasp the wisdom the pedals hold

Dreams, oh dreams they come and go
Tease the mind then flow
Yes with the wind they blow, they go, they go so

And you’re laying down so close me
So beautiful indeed, now rise up slowly

Chorus
Track Name: Sunrise Song (Acoustic)
“Sunrise Song”

Sunrise on the eastside, sunset on the west
I’ve emptied my pockets and given my best
My toes keep on dipping in waters unknown
And ripples they carry to shore

The cracks in the sidewalk which trace my path home
Leave nothing but starry nights outside alone
The minutes seem longer, the incense burn slower
And photos still on the wall

PreChorus:
Well you may be far and time run slow
But this old clock has freed my soul
Cause tomorrow morning you’ll be coming home

Chorus:
So dream on and rise with the morning sun
I’ll pick you up by the railway at about half past noon
Then all along I’ll hold you with my own two arms
And finally our long awaited sunrise will rise for two

Upon closer inspection, I grasp the reflection
In windows and mirrors on the wall
Got nothing but smiles, you’ve traveled the miles
Till phone calls diminish to none

Now sitting in sand, my sunrise in hand
We’re begging and pleading for more
Cuz despite our requests, you must set in the west
But when morning comes you’ll be back again

PreChorus:
Well you may be far and time run slow
But this old clock has freed my soul
Cause tomorrow morning you’ll be coming home

Chorus:
So dream on and rise with the morning sun
I’ll pick you up by the railway at about half past noon
Then all along I’ll hold you with my own two arms
And finally our long awaited sunrise will rise for two

Bridge:
You know either way, at the break of day
The sun will rise
I've been waiting here for you to come
And tomorrow you’ll arrive

CHORUS
Yea finally our long awaited sunrise will rise for two
Yea finally our long awaited sunrise will rise for two
Track Name: Go ft. Jeanna Salzer (Acoustic)
Go

You said, “go, before the dawn, before the roosters crow”

You said, “leave, go and plant your life, you have the seeds”

You said, “now, now’s your time to listen and allow”

Then you said, “bye, you know the universe is on your side”

Chorus:
“Be on your way now. Be on your way,” you said
“Be on your way now, go… go… (x2)
Be gone”

You said “go, the sun will rise without you if you’re slow”

You said, “leave, you’re not happy here, I’m not deceived”

You said, “now, if you really want to love, then go learn how”

Then you said, “bye, I’ll miss you more than missing can imply.”

Chorus:

“Then at least we’ll know one thing when all is said and done
We won’t have sat down still while we spun around the sun, we’ll say
“I suppose we chose to finally make the darkness glow, and
travel down these roads paved for our souls”

Chorus:
“Be on your way now. Be on your way,” you said
“Be on your way now, go… go… (x2)
Be gone”
Track Name: History We Write (Acoustic)
The History We Write

Daybreak, you wake
Empty and alone

I lay, in dismay
Sleepless and torn, thinking

CHORUS:
Please don’t let this be our last story, the last story
Noooo don’t let this be our last story, the history we write

Memories, they fill the walls thought we had it all
But now we’re here

Wondering if this will be the history
We leave

CHORUS:

No, no, no

BRIDGE:
Staring blankly at the ceiling
Silence fills the space
Shattered heartbeats count the seconds
It’s time, it’s time

And the pen is in our hands,
We’re barely holding on
The ink is running dry

FINAL CHORUS:
Please don’t let this be our last story, the last story
Noooo don’t let this be our last story, the history we write
Track Name: Love Remains (Acoustic)
Love Remains

You speak with a different tone from what I call my own
But we both speak love the same

So as we get away to the olden days
Beneath the stars by the sea and the rolling waves

We pick up all the stones build ourselves home
Hand in hand with more than we’ve ever known

With everything we need all our troubles leave
They go, they go, they go, they go

Till only this love remains, yea just love remains
And wrapped in my arms you lay, you lay
As the whole world fades away, it goes, it goes, it goes
Till only this love remains

And in the morning time, your eyes wake to mine
While the sun sneaks through the leaves like they’re broken blinds

I hold you the same, these moments we could frame
We’re finally done, done waiting in vain

For all this to come, our two souls melt to one
Like two rivers merging in the same ocean

Yea it’s just you and me, with nothing in between
But heartbeats pulling greater than gravity

CHORUS

BRIDGE
This love only, only
This love only, only
This love only, only
This love

CHORUS x2
Track Name: The Sun (Acoustic)
The Sun

I hold you, like you’ve been holding me
For so long now
So patiently
While I ran free
And fell upon the road

You always left your door open
Knowing someday I’d return again
Pleading, praying, let me in

Chorus:
I see now you’re the sun that I’d been waiting on
Yea I’d been waiting on, but you were never gone
Each morning you rose, but from what I chose I fell
Stuck inside the clouds, while you remained the sun

I hold you, like you’ve been holding me
For so long now
So trustingly, without deceit
With just tenderness and time

Ohhh and I know
I’ve got a long, long way to go
It’s not a stone’s throw
No, I’ve got no time for moving slow
I’ve got to let go
And move on towards your love

CHORUS

Bridge:
I now can see the sun
And it’s only just begun… begun, begun, begun

Final Chorus
Track Name: Ignore the Story (Acoustic)
Ignore the Story

He calls life a struggle, a battle of humankind
A warzone of judgment, of forceful and fearful minds

And she calls it magic, she calls life a miracle
A journey for our love, but a journey with obstacles

She said no, it’s not easy, when darkness calls
But a teacher once told me that all
I must know
Is to try to…

Ignore the story and see the soul
Remember to love, and learn to let go
She said you’ll never regret it, go see for your own
Open your heart and follow it home

He calls life survival, a story of you verse me
A story for our love, but where pain is too plain to see

She calls life her Teacher, she calls it the grace of God
But says all too often we just lose touch of who we are

She said no, it’s not easy, so when darkness calls
I try to remember that all I must know is to try to…

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Follow it home, into the stars
Beyond this cold, beyond the dark
And here for now, we’ll keep on trying
Time and time and time again to

Ignore the story and see the soul
Remember to love, and learn to let go. She said
She said we’ll never regret it, we’ll see for our own
We’ll open our hearts and follow them home
Track Name: Magic (Acoustic)
Magic

I got my heart from my mother
Got my travels from my father
Got my music from the ocean
Got my spirit from the stars

And I got this message from the elders
It was carved into a stone
It was written on the rivers
It was tattooed on our souls

There is magic in every heartbeat
In every atom, in every single sky
And all this magic sings of wisdom
That sounds a lot like love, love, love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love

Got my nature raised by women
Got my home by leaving town
Got my guidance from my angels
Got my trust from the unknown

And I got this message from the elders
It was written on the shores
It was carved into the mountains
It was tattooed on our souls

There is magic in every heartbeat
In every atom, in every single sky
And all this magic sings of wisdom
That sounds a lot like love, love, love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love

Bridge:
So when I call upon the elders
And when I call upon the stars
In all my longing and my confusion
They say don’t worry child, don’t worry child, don’t worry… Because

Final Chorus
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Mmhmmm love, love, love
Love, love, love
