Beirut - Gibraltar Lyrics




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

  15. shit help

    The Smiths with so much more composition ability!!!!

  16. JC GAMES

    Esse vocalista me lembra muito o jin morrison do the Doors

  17. Elitthi Talenh

    En tiempos de belleza oscura ...que por cierto está escrita desde tiempos inmemoriales, solo algunas élites musicales se merecen el honor de saber tanto sobre alguno talentos que no se dan de migajas a cualquiera.
    Como siempre me han ayudado muchísimo a seguir siendo "persona libre" y poder contar parte de este ser, en tiempos finales.
    Hay muchísimo que nadie sabe y cuánto apostaron mi vida por ser creativa como ustedes.
    Hay cosas que debemos cuidar desde el fondo de nuestra frágil alma 🕊️

  18. Barry Smith

    Great music, lead singer's voice like Neil Hannon's of Divine Comedy (the band)

  19. Stephen P

    Can anyone please tell me the rhythm for the djembe (bango) part? I've spent an hour trying to figure it out.

  20. Junior sriwilai

    เลิฟ ดิซ ซองงงงงง <3

  21. Tian Robinson

    Seems like they’re playing to the void

  22. Thero Kenman

    Floyd Bennett Field!!!!! Fu¢k yeah!

  23. Stephen HOARD JR

    I really dig this music by BEIRUT

  24. Jade Damasio Melo

    I'm disappointed.

  25. Rollingstoneboi

    Aye I'm from Gibraltar

  26. 28ek

    Why Gibraltar?

  27. ItsJustNikkita

    this is still and probably will forever be my favorite song in the world. It is so soothing to me. 😌

  28. ilikecows44

    Any evidence they've played this live?

    Michael P.

    ilikecows44 No.

    ilikecows44

    Thought so. I wonder why not. It's a helluva jam.

    Michael P.

    ilikecows44 It is.

  29. isthelettucenotragin

    Apaixonada por essa banda

  31. Lays Milene Miranda

    ai eu amo essa música

  32. Florida Girl

    Catfish brought me here!!

  33. No Face

    Not many things have left me as speechless as Beirut did. Each song of theirs has a soul.

  34. PewDieRekt

    Beirut is a city name...

  35. Level 69

    Sorry, but this song is horrible... :-)

  36. Hugh Montana

    Appalling

  37. Erica Paige Schumacher

    Postmodern and still lovely. If you've ever caressed sand,
    or enjoyed the fuzzy logic of an Afghan, you might like this, too.

  38. Amanda Machado

    aquariano no 12 esse Zach

  39. Eclipse Solar 83

    Doesn't sound like the Beirut i know and love.

  40. lsamoa

    This sounds more like Jens Lekman than Beirut tbh

  41. Bryson Spahn

    Not the biggest fan of this album, but there's something refreshing about this song. It feels like a nice breath of fresh air after such a long hiatus. Best choice for the album opener IMO.

  42. Cristian Martínez

    Still i don't know what is that when the video starts.
    That thing red colored wiht gray, whte, white blue and strange textures.

  43. vashsworld

    please dont ever stop

  44. King Of Da Kingz

    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, sitting 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

    Ooooh-mmm

    Oh, sitting 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

  45. King Of Da Kingz

    everything should be fine

  46. Goggins Gog

    Classico concept tanto di moda per adesso, tutto minimal, tutto "filosofia mac". Che immensa noia. E non mi sono espresso sulla "musica"

  47. Ghiaccio 「White Album」

    I remember watching this on Havoc 24/7 music. The memories.

  86. Hannah Edwards

    their music makes me happy

  87. james beaet

    I really really loved this song at first, but it quickly faded on me...like a stick of Fruit Stripe gum. No staying power. Need horns. Zach looks just like Bam Margera here and it freaks me out.

  88. theone456

    great song....bad video
