  • I open my eyes, everything shines
    I swim as the breeze blows down the coast
    Down on my luck, breathing my last
    Dirty old hands carry me home

    Red sky turning round
    Black rain falling down
    If you've got love
    You better hope that that's enough
    Sandstorm cuts your skin
    Black clouds circling
    If you've got love
    You better hope that that's enough

    You came from the south
    To Lebanon shores
    Folding our clothes,
    Dived in too deep
    The blackest of seas glittering red
    Lit by the fire over our heads

    Red sky turning round
    Black rain falling down
    If you've got love
    You better hope that that's enough
    Sandstorm cuts your skin
    Songbirds circling
    If you've got love
    You'd better hope that that's enough

    You'd better hope that that's enough Writer/s: JESSE QUIN, RICHARD DAVID HUGHES, TIMOTHY JAMES RICE-OXLEY, TOM CHAPLIN
