The conclusion is a variation on the main theme. It's a rainy night in Paris, And the harbour lights are low. He must leave his love in Paris Before the winter snow. On a lonely street in Paris, He held her close to say " We'll meet again in Paris When there are flowers on the Champs-Elysees. " " How long " she said " How long, And will your love be strong ? When you're across the sea, Will your love remember me ? " Then she gave him words to turn to When the winter nights were long. " Nous serons encore amoureux Avec les couleurs du printemps. " " And then " she said " And then, Our love will grow again. " Ah, but in her eyes he sees Her words of love are only words to please. And now the lights of Paris Grow dim and fade away. And I know by the light of Paris I will never see her again.
