My hands were held out for you to grab, and to hold. Never knowing what the future meant for the two of us. It didn’t matter, at the end. When two hearts combine the way ours did. We were truly one.
But why did you let my hand go?
And why so suddenly?
What went wrong for us?
What made you change your mind?
I’m confused. And I can’t sleep. I can’t let go, without your reply.

“The initial idea of the song was created right after the tragic events at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris, late 2015. You read about moments of chaos, running for your life type of situations, but then you hear these stories of how people help each other, acting so selflessly for strangers alike. It’s the most inspirational thing out there.”
‘Paris’ is an emotional trip, taken over decades of inherent personalities, overlapped and singularly similar in tragedy and missed opportunities. It’s a delicate and subtle, theme from the band.
