    Lyrics

    Lebanese Night
    From Timing Is Everything
    by Chris de Burgh with Elissa

    Year Released: 2002

    Playing Time: 4:46

    (Uh...)

    It was late in a Lebanese restaurant, in the heat of a Lebanese night,
    There was dancing, people were singing, she came in from the garden outside,
    And in her eyes (Bi Ouyoona)
    I saw the stars (Bshouf E' Njoom),
    And I felt something happen in my heart (Uh...);

    Then I knew I was going to meet her in the heat of a Lebanese night,
    And the girl inside the woman, who came over to sit by my side,
    And when she smiled,
    the whole world stopped (Salam),
    It was then I heard the echoes of a child;

    And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby,
    And the sound of the guns in the night,
    And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
    From the hell that came down from the sky?
    On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night;

    We went down to the edge of the water, by the light of a Lebanese dawn,
    And she told me all the stories of her beautiful land in the war,
    Her tears fell down,
    the sun came up,
    And I saw again the young girl in her eyes;

    Ghammadt Ouyounak 'a Ghinniyyi
    Wa Sawt Bi 'llayl shou khifan
    W' rahh bit dal hayk layliyi init'sihran
    Shi marra mshit bi hal mada, w' marra hrabt aw min hada
    La indak jayi 'al ghada w' kinit ta'ban
    On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night;

    Ana Ma 'areft illa makan
    Ma rahh bi fil minnou 'ssalam
    Fi hadaya ktar min ywazze'on
    Mish killi el oulad fi hdiyyi ilon

    Uh...

    (Uh...)

    And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby,
    And the sound of the guns in the night,
    And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
    From the hell that came down from the sky?
    On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night,
    On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night,
    I will be waiting,
    in the Lebanon.
