Beirut

Beirut - Nantes:



Lyrics:

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



Beirut - Elephant Gun:
 



Lyrics:

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 gun
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 - Postcards From Italy:  
 



Lyrics:

The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had
Had to go, never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
At those who
Those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

And I will love to see that day
That day is mine
When she will marry me outside
With the willow trees
And play the songs we made
They made me so
And I would love to see that day
Her day was mine

  1. Beirut - A Sunday Smile:

    "All I want is the best for our lives my dear,
    and you know my wishes are sincere
    Whats to say for the days I cannot bare"

    Come non sciogliersi dinnanzi a tanta poesia?
    Come non emozionarsi alle note delle melodie dei Beirut?

    Che magia...

  3. Ho molte aspettative riguardo il loro concerto per tanti motivi sia musicali sia personali (galeotta fu Nantes, mi verrebbe da dire!) e auspico sia un evento carico di emozioni!

  4. La mia galeotta è invece La Benlieue... The Flyng Club Cup era nascosto in un qualche recondito meandro del mio hd da un bel po' di tempo (in verità non so neanche come ci sia finito), ma per fortuna ogni tanto ho gli schizzi ascoltativi del tipo "bene, ora metto in playlist ogni gruppo che non ho mai sentito"! Ed è partita La Benlieue, e io con lei...
    Per fortuna che il nome del gruppo comincia con la B! :)
