For Gold, Beirut is still a city of light

Despite the circumstances, Beirut has always been a city for which one cannot be indifferent.

A song by the group GOLD, one of the leading French groups of the 1980s, was dedicated to the Lebanese capital, then ravaged by the civil war from 1975 to 1990, the traces of which were quickly erased to reappear with the explosion of the Port of Beirut.

This article had indeed been scheduled to be published on August 4, 2020 in the evening. The circumstances of the tragedy in the port of Beirut then led to the temporary withdrawal of this publication until it was forgotten to reappear today.

Released in 1986, title of the album of the same name, this song is a declaration of love to a bruised city, which is no longer a shadow of itself but which nevertheless continued to shine…

Beirut, city of light even despite the current power cuts with the hope of seeing it shine again as in the past despite the shadow that has fallen on it…

A message of hope more relevant than ever today!

Words

Like a diamond that arises
To the branches of my fingers
You shine every night before me
City of Light
I need you

But your pink sand walls
Have lost their shine
Under the dark shadows of the soldiers
City of Light
What have they done to you

Cry no more
Stay here
To wonder why
Does not exist
Only for you
love you until the last fight

On your cobblestones of dust
And your way of the cross
Your children don’t play like they used to
City of Light
I need you

And in my stone prison
Where I’m shivering and I’m cold
I know…I won’t see you again
City of Light
What have they done to me

Cry no more
Stay here
To wonder why
Does not exist
Only for you
love you until the last fight
Cry no more
Stay here
To wonder why
Does not exist
Only for you
love you until the last fight
