Beirut Gibraltar

Everything should be fine

You’ll find things tend to stand in line

It’s but a link in time

But I’m sure you’ll let me try

Oh, set it on fire

So long we’re waiting on by

Who laid a line?

Say you’re like my kind

You loved the times, I sang

Your loss was mine

Who laid a line?

Say you’re like my kind

You loved the times, I sang

Your loss was mine

In your mind’ eye

In your mmm

In your mind’s eye

In your mmm

In your mind’s eye

In your mmm

In your mind’s eye

In your mmm

Oh, set it on fire

So long we’re waiting on by

Who laid a line?

Say you’re like my kind

You loved the times

I sang your loss was mine

Who laid a line?

Say you’re like my kind

You loved the times

I sang your loss was mine

Beirut The Peacock

There’s an answer for I’m cold again

Back in the sand just like those soldier men

And even once I fell down in the narrow lanes

On the ground I lay

And I would say

Infernal heat can’t take the sound in here

Shake the trees see what falls out of them

In a city where nobody hears

A birds call fine fine winter’s here again

Calls and sings berlin, berlin

Among the camp we’re done with him

We’d shoot him down

But then but then

Where should I begin, begin

He’s the only one who knows the words [x8]

Beirut Elephant Gun

If I was young, I’d flee this town

I’d bury my dreams underground

As did I, we drink to die, we drink tonight

Far from home, elephant guns

Let’s take them down one by one

We’ll lay it down, it’s not been found, it’s not around

Let the seasons begin – it rolls right on

Let the seasons begin – take the big king down

Let the seasons begin – it rolls right on

Let the seasons begin – take the big king down

And it rips through the silence of our camp at night

And it rips through the night

And it rips through the silence of our camp at night

And it rips through the silence, all that is left is all that I hide

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 Perth

Not of this world

Lean as a shadow

I was in Perth

When I was gathered

Blood on the sand

Paint on the water

I skipped around

Asking for you

Last night I combed the earth

You saw me at my worst

Ragged tire burning for miles

I ran until it hurt

Reasons come seasonal

I’ll tell you when I know

See you in an hour, an hour back home

See you in an hour, an hour back home

See you in an hour, an hour back home

See you in an hour, an hour back home

Beirut Nantes

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’assure que ce n’est pas grave.

Non laisse moi!

Mais qu’est-ce que tu as aujourd’hui?

J’ai que les hommes me dégoûtent. Vous ne pensez qu’à ça.

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

Beirut Payne’s Bay

I can’t belong to winter

I can’t put on your fire

This town is alone and therefore

I see no end in sight

Olden hymns child

Olden words you’ll know

Headstrong today, I’ve been headstrong

Headstrong today, I’ve been headstrong

Beirut Santa Fe

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..

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
