    "Beirut" by Damon Hill ft. Jonathan Corey (Steed Sound) on Piano

    Recorded at Steed Sound in Somerville, MA. We highly recommend Jonathan to all Boston-area musicians. He's a terrific engineer, his equipment and techniques are top notch, and his prices are super reasonable. We pulled this off in one take (with some extra layers) in the middle of a hurricane...he's that good. Check him out at:

    Lyrics:

    If you had seen your face tonight
    Then you would understand why
    Despite the love that we have known
    That I must go

    You were a lonely tired girl
    And I loved to make you smile
    But now that smile’s faintly dim
    So I must go

    We will go down down you and I
    We will go down down you and I

    It was a long long time ago
    That I believed in love at first sight
    Perhaps a cynic I have grown
    So I must go

    We will go down down you and I
    We will go down down you and I

    But there was a time
    When the moon shone in your eyes
    All dappled and white
    And we were so alive
    And I wish most every night
    To see you in that light
    When we weren’t so down

    (We weren’t so down)
    Up to our necks with the feeling we're out of control
    Breaking us down into pieces and creases of folds we don't show
    Back when our walls so laughably small were more than we needed
    Didn't know then we'd fall in the end when waters receded

    When we weren’t so down down you and I
    When we weren’t so down down you and I
