I am assuming both x and y are 1 dimensionsal lists. If so, you can achieve what you want by using Interpolation to change each list into an InterpolatingFunction and then using the resulting functions in ParametricPlot. For example,

y = Table[Random[], {5}];
x = Table[Random[] + 2*n, {n, 5}];
fx = Interpolation[x];
fy = Interpolation[y];
ParametricPlot[{fx[t], fy[t]}, {t, 1, 5}];
