east harlem lyrics – beirut

“east harlem”

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]
