Beirut C. Cunningham & C. Sheffer /G The newsreels always open up /Esus4 With film-clips of the palm trees swaying /Gsus4 Then they sweep to the white sand beaches /G /C /D Close-ups of the children playing /C Then they cut to the gutted homes /D Where gentle people died alone /Em /Am With sniper‘s shots that come from /F /D Fine apartments that could be my own Chorus /G /D /Em /C And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home!’ And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home’ And we all had that hollow feeling Sinking in our souls again That all the roman nobles felt While they were waiting for the end And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home!’ Verse 1 I’m used to photographs online that show The peasant families sharing loads Driven from the backward jungles Onto all the modern roads But when I saw those towers fall It didn't seem that far at all Till streets explode with thousands Saying we’re the bad guys after all! Chorus And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home!’ And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home’ And we all had that hollow feeling Sinking in our souls again That all the roman nobles felt While they were waiting for the end And I said ‘My God Beirut looks just like home!’ #audio #Political #MiddleEast #ArabSpring #CivilWar #Protest
