It's Been A Long Time


It keeps amazing me how a song could capture a heart! Especially my heart ;) It's like falling in love, at least for me. When I hear something special, I keep listening to the same melody, until it's like embedded in my skin and at the same time flows through my veins, reaching my heart. And my own heart starts beating in the rhythm of the song. I'd like to share with you the last melody that did that to me
Dear friends, I give you the Nantes of Beirut:



And here are the lyrics:

                                                              "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
