1.
the song of the bird, the sound of the breeze the kind of act that brings you to your knees the song of your home, the way the door creaks all the little floor boards, with all their little squeaks when you feel half gone and not that strong the only thing that saves you the battle lost, your friends have bailed little paper ships sunk , the puddles prevailed the beat of your heart, and struggling breath the tears rolling down your , cheeks on to your chest when you feel half gone and not that strong the only thing that saves you when you’ve been knocked down and pushed aside so misunderstood you wanna hide you tap your toes, you feel the blues some times you win sometimes you lose and not that strong the only thing that saves you the only thing that saves you the only thing that saves you is a song
2.
Beirut, Beirut I long to be, bathed in your waters buried in your arms, on the steps of your temples and your Cedar Trees I long for you, I ache for you I yearn for you, I hope and wish and dream your coal black hair, rose water tea Hariri Square, Mediterranean Sea Beirut, Beirut Beirut, Beirut Beirut, Beirut Crumbling Buildings, War ravaged and left like age old reminders, of unpaid debts The names of your women, your cedar wood the world sees the danger, I see the good Rafqa and Yasmin, Youmna and Nour Ancient names, from an Ancient shore Beirut, Beirut Your smokey bars, hipster book sellers Thousands of lovers and, Al Bossarra fortune tellers Your classical French languages lost cheese and syrup like coffee, your MIlitary cost and the names of your women the names of your women the names of your women

Boring People by Ben Sures this is who i am the body breaking the troubled heart the can’t get finished, the can’t go on, the can’t start not the bravest, the smartest or the dumbest either not satisfied with satisfied, not into bliss and ether who are you, who am i is there a difference when we try is there really a payoff, are there just more things to fix are we just boring people that do boring things for kicks who are you, who am i this is who i was the blind ambition, the vocal cracks with no eyes to my peers, deaf to all the obvious facts not the best moves or the brightest but when you are young you’re dumb how else can you make mistakes I could have listened my mom who are you, who are we is there a difference when we flee is there really a payoff, are there just more things to fix are we just boring people that do boring things for kicks who are you, who are we she doesn’t know doesn’t care or thats what she gives off the people that act the hardest, are very very soft to make the great reveal, to show the truest part would be to admit to being human and that you have a heart so its riding in a truck and blaring the horn its f bombs, hockey and porn its the top of your lungs singing ‘Riders in the Storm’ who am I now, who was I then is there a difference in the end is there really a payoff or just more things to fix are we just boring people that do boring things for kicks who am I now, who was I then
