"Guyamas Sonora" as written by and Zach Condon....
In the hall I heard your faints falling,
your trial and my corrections made.

You have all the prayers of my loose heart.
You have all the prayers of

No I was not there on the church stairs.
The wind in my hair, a flood through my tear

    General CommentIn the hall I heard, your faints falling
    Your trial and my corrections made

    You had all the prayers of my loose heart
    You had all the prayers of my

    No I was not there on the church stairs
    The wind in my hair, a flood through my tear
    No I was not there on the church stairs
    The wind in my hair, a flood through my tear

    Me I wanted, I wanted the right time
    Me I wanted, I wanted the fire in line
    Me I wanted, I wanted the right time
    Me I wanted, I wanted the fire in line

    General CommentI think it's:

    No, I was not there, on the church stairs
    The wind in my hair, fled through night's air

    This is my favorite off the new album.

    General CommentGuyamas may be an intentional misspelling on the part of the writer... there is a town in Mexico named Guaymas in the "state" of Sonora.
    There is apparently a carnival there every year.

    General CommentI actually think the last lines might look like this:

    "Me, I wanted, I wanted the right time
    Me, I wanted, I wanted the firing line"

    Firing line as in firing squad. It seems like it would fit in well. And I agree with "I fled through my terror". Just some thoughts.

    Absolutely gorgeous song.

    My InterpretationMy favourite from Beirut!

    I always imagine Zach singing about failed relationship and he is still expressing his love and yearning for that connection he once had. Now the significant other is getting married "No I was not there on the church stairs
    The wind in my hair, a flood through my tear ..." showing he is still heartbroken about it. He wanted it to work but perhaps it wasn't reciprocated.

    that is the little video that goes on in my head when I listen to it anyway hehe

    General Commenti love beriut so much this song is amazing im not exactly sure what it means it sounds like a love song of sorts and an apology/explanation when he says "no i was not there etc."
