East Harlem - Beirut

Another rose wilts in East Harlem
And uptown downtown a thousand miles between us
She’s waiting for the night to fall
Let it fall, I’ll never make it in time [x3]

Sound is the colour I know, oh,
Sound is what keeps me before your eyes,
And sound of your breath in the cold,
And oh, the sound will bring me home again [x2]

* Beirut - La LLorona

Ever away from seeing more than life
The morning lies miles away from the night
No man ever could steal her heart
But With bright gold coins I’ll take my shot

And all it takes to fall
If you don’t walk, might as well crawl

All it takes to fall
What a quiet world after all
Of the things that you guessed will come
What a moment it was after all

* Beirut - Cherbourg

And a fall from you
is a long way down
I’ve found a better way out
And a fall from you
is a long way down
I know a better way out

Well it’s been a long time
since I’ve seen you smile
Gambled away my fright
Till the morning lights shine

Sunday morning
only fog on the limbs
I called it again
what do you know
And I filled our days
with cards and gin
You’re alright again, my dear

I will lead the way, oh, lead the way
When I know
And I’ll sleep away, oh, sweep away
What I don’t
Well sieze the way, oh, sieze the way
No, I won’t
I will lead the way, oh, lead the day
When I know

* Beirut - Vagabond


Left the vagabonds
A trail of stones
Forward to find my way home
Now as the air grows cold
The trees unfold
And I am lost
And not found

And who knows [x3]

Now left the vagabonds
A trail of stones
Forward to find my way home
Now as the air grows cold
The truth unfolds
And I am lost
And not found [x2]

* Beirut - Santa Fe [LIVE]

Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(for me, for you)
I’m just too young
(And what of my heart)
This day was once
(Silence before)
All grace of lost
Can’t wait at all
(Can’t wait at all)
Temptation won

And what ever comes through the door
I’ll see it face to face
All by your place

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son

And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone
And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone

Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(for me, for you)
I’m just too young
(And what of my heart)

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son…

Mimizan - Beirut

* The lines are on board, it’s quiet offshore

But the wind blows
The children are here but the women just stare
From the windows

See the lawns outside, groomed green lawns
Oh how they glow
And I spotted you there with curlers in hair
On the telephone

And I’ll move for you
Yes, I’ll move for you
Oh I’ll move for you

Yes, I’ll move for you


Years spin round on the foyer
As the maid sweeps dust
And leaves from the back door

My heart could be yours
Within dreams we’re free
But you’d always ask for more

So, I’ll move for you
Yes, I’ll move for you
Oh I’ll move for you
Oh I’ll move for you

I will lead the way
Oh, lead the way when I know

I’ll sweep away what I don’t

Well, seize the way
Oh, seize the way, no, I won’t
I will lead the way
Oh, lead the day when I know

Nantes — Beirut


Well it’s been a long time, long time now

Since I’ve seen you smile
And I’ll gamble away my fright
And I’ll gamble away my time
And in a year, a year or so
This will slip into the sea
Well it’s been a long time, long time now
Since I’ve seen you smile

Nobody raise your voices
Just another night in Nantes
Nobody raise your voices
Just another night in Nantes

- Oh non je t’en prie, nous ne sommes pas chez nous.
- Oh je t’assures que ce n’est pas grave.
- Non laisse moi!
- Mais qu’est-ce que tu as aujourd’hui?
- Je sais que les hommes me dégoutent. Vous ne pensez qu’à ça…

(- Oh please, no, we’re not at home.
- I’m telling you, it’s all right.
- No, let me go!
- What is wrong with you today?
- I only know that men disgust me. You all just think about one thing….)

Well it’s been a long time, long time now
Since I’ve seen you smile
And I’ll gamble away my fright
And I’ll gamble away my time
And in a year, a year or so
This will slip into the sea
Well it’s been a long time, long time now
Since I’ve seen you smile

Port of Call - Beirut

And I, I called through the air that night

A calm sea voiced with a lie
I could only smile, I’ve been alone some time
And all, and all, it’s been fine

And you, you had hope for me now
I danced all around it somehow
Be fair to me, I may drift a while
Were it up to me, you know I’d

I, I called through the air that night
The faults were swarming inside
Was it infantile, that which we desired?
Were it up to me, all from your eyes

And I, I called through the air that night
My thoughts were still buried inside
We were closer then, I’ve been alone some time
Filled you glass with gin
Filled your heart with pride
And you, you had hope for me now
I danced all around it somehow
Be fair to me, I may drift a while

If there’s a plan for me
Would it make you smile?
No, don’t want to be there for no one
I can see

Beirut - A Candle’s Fire

Oh light a candle’s fire, carries a good name
What would you ask a camp fire, it’s scares’d be just the same
And you, you had it all along, and endless need for games
Just don’t forget a candle’s fire, is only just a flame

I, it’s certain from a far, have failed to pull my weight
But you were light, you travelled through the fog, to arrive at our front Gate
Tonight we rest beside the fire, a smile upon your face
Just don’t forget a candle’s fire is only just a flame

If I had known not to carry on that way, 
It wouldn’t show in the creases of your face
If you should go but you carry on my name
Just let it blow, in the fog on Bishop’s Lane

Scenic World - Beirut

* The lights go on

The lights go off
When things don’t feel right
I lie down like a tired dog
Licking his wounds in the shade

When I feel alive
I try to imagine a careless life
A scenic world where the sunsets are all
Breathtaking
