Beirut – Cherbourg lyrics

And a fall from here
Is a long way down
I've found a better way out

And a fall from here
Is a long way down
I know a better way out

Well, it's been a long time
Since I've seen you smile
Gambles away my fright
Till the morning lights shine

It's been a long time
Since I've seen you smile
Gambles away my fright
Till the morning lights shine

Sunday morning
Only fog on the limbs
I called it again
What do you know

And I filled our days
With cards and gin
You're alright again, my dear

I will lead the way
Oh, lead the way when I know
And I'll sleep away
I'll sweep away what I don't

Well, seize the way
Oh, seize the way, no, I won't
I will lead the way
Oh, lead the day when I know
