Beirut
[Intro]

F  C*  G G* G  F


[Verse 1]

F               C*      G G* G F
Like an ancient day and I'm on trial
F                   C        G G* G        F
Let them seize the way, this once was an island


[Chorus 1]

    G           C        F           C
And I could not stay for I believed them
 G           C      F         C
Left for the lights always in season


[Interlude]

 F - C* - G - G* - F


[Verse 2]

F          C*         G G* G   F
Impassable night in a crowd of homesick
F           C*         G G* G           F
Fully grown children, you'll leave the lights


[Chorus 2]
      G             C           F      C
Your family may not wait, Sir, keep on believing
      G             C           F      C
Our parents rue the day, they find us kneeling
 G                   C            F        C
Let them think what they may, for they've good reason
  G           C       F          C
Left for the lights always in season


G          C            F       C
Ooooooh Ooooooh Ooooooooh Oooooooooh
G          C            F       C
Ooooooh Ooooooh Ooooooooh Oooooooooh


[Chorus 3]

      G             C           F      C
Your family may not wait, Sir, keep on believing
      G             C           F      C
Our parents rue the day, they find us kneeling
 G                   C            F        C
Let them think what they may, for they've good reason
  G           C       F          C
Left for the lights always in season


G          C            F       C
Ooooooh Ooooooh Ooooooooh Oooooooooh
G          C            F       C
Ooooooh Ooooooh Ooooooooh Oooooooooh
