Beirut, Bayrut, Beyrouth! The jewel of Lebanon and the most glittering city on the Mediterranean. The poets called it "the most European city in Arabia and the most Arab city in Europe".

Nowhere in the world has seen such beauty, such sadness, such history, such love. This is preview of a piece I made as a tribute to Beirut, Lebanon, my favourite place in the world. The pictures I got off the net so if anyone can send me good high quality ones I'd be grateful.. also I'll reupload the video using those pictures. Enjoy!!

The streets are alive With the sound of generators Ah ah aaha And when power's back The water pumps Ah ah aaha The streets fill my ears With the sound of traffic Ah ah aaha My ears are shattered By every car horn ... every horn, every horn I go to Beirut When my heart is lonely I know I will hear What I've heard before My heart will be blessed With the sounds of Beirut And I'll sing once more.
