Beirut - East Harlem Lyrics

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 East Harlem Comments
  1. Marina Krešić

    there is a special feeling when ur listening to beirut. it is like the song is bringing back memories u have never had and times u never lived in.

  2. The_kings_play

    Reminds me of that other song that sounded like beirut

  3. Jennie Horne

    Plus, I haven't any good guides nor help.

  4. Jennie Horne

    Sorry, I've had allergies to, and lived in dusty spots with animals and pollens, spores and mold all my life. That takes erratic and strange tolls!

  5. Abigael Sihotang

    This song is so relaxing..
    Still hearing this on my daily life.

  6. Alejandro

    The crazy thing, I’ve partied in East Harlem before!

    nother 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
    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
    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

    [Verse 2]
    Sound is the color 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
    Sound is the color 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

  18. summerinspringville-hill

    This is lovely but I prefer the live version...

  19. herve le pelley

    Superbe chanson. Quel bonheur ce groupe si peu connu en France. C'est dommage...

  20. Kevin Bundela

    2018 anyone?

  21. aboutashow

    What's the meaning of this song? What does the rose represent? There's already a song about a rose in Harlem that's decades old, and in that song it thrives. Why does this one wilt?

    Andrés Núñez

    Creo que habla de una chica.

  22. Yasmin Ribeiro

    this song breaks my heart every single time i play it and it's still my favorite

  23. Yasmin Ribeiro

    This song is not the same now he's gone

  30. ProtestSong68

    2:10 and 2:20 are magical moments that make shivers run through my spine

  38. Volker H.

    @MyLoveAndHappiness1- ur so right!

  39. Guidinha Pinto

    Thank you Polskimg :)

  40. MyLoveAndHappiness1

    Why are they NOT famous?!

    I mean, they TRULY deserve to be more know than Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, or just about any other music star in the U.S.

    Why is our generation of good music going to waste?

    Anywho, Love ya Beirut. You are the true music celebs.

    Christopher Spellum

    MyLoveAndHappiness1 Most people don't like thinking. They would just rather be spoon fed easy music that sounds like everything they have heard since they were 5. Just appreciate the fact that you love it. F*** everybody else.

    Hink Olgen

    because not being famous is the best thing to keep your real fans behind!!


    hey, you can’t compare people like Nicki Minaj or Miley Cyrus to beirut.....they have completely different sounds and are completely different genre. Nicki Minaj is literally mainstream rap... don’t hate on popular things because you think it makes you look cool. it’s not cool. it makes you look like a pretentious asshole. if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. they’re making art whether you like it or not. And if your argument is that Nicki Minaj or Miley shows too much skin...seriously? In this day and age, you’re gonna complain about what women do with their bodies and sexuality? Come on.

  41. Jazmin Hunt

    Its funny. I only heard about beirut in a ze frank vid for a split second and now Im just in love with their music

  42. Dor Amit Fridman

    2:20 and on is practically the reason to wake up every morning

  43. LeoNil

    Amo. Sossego para a minh'alma!

  44. Dominik J.

    Beiruts music gives me wings, I feel so slightly and it feels like im flying. I see the world in a different light.
    No im just kidding, I am high...

  45. Justin Francesco

    Julian Plenti approves

  46. LunasLurgy

    there's a thousand miles between us,
    she's waiting for the night to fall,
    Let it fall,
    I'll never make it in time.
