Lost weekend

from by Solo

/

about

Where to go if you don't know?
When you're up to no good?
When you're misunderstood?

On a lost weekend with Solo!

This is the track with the most instruments on This is Solo. It resembles some of the tension of Prayer for the gun.
The lyrics are influenced by "Un saison en enfer" published first in 1873 and written by the best poet I know Arthur Rimbaud.

This is probably Simon best work with Solo. Listen to his beautiful arrangements!

lyrics

LOST WEEKEND

WHEN YOU’RE UP TO NO GOOD
BECAUSE YOU’RE MISUNDERSTOOD
I’LL TAKE YOU ANYWHERE THE WIND BLOWS, AWAY FOR GOOD
‘CAUSE YOUR DADDY’S BEEN RUDE
CROSS THE SEAS LIKE A SAILOR WOULD
OVER THE EDGE OF THIS NEIGHBOURHOOD

WHEN YOU BURN WITH DESIRE
BUT YOUR LOVE IS A LIAR
WE’LL GO ANYWHERE THE WIND BLOWS, HIGHER AND HIGHER
WHEN IT COMES TO THE WIRE
LET’S GET DRUNK TO QUENCH THAT FIRE
SINK AWAY IN BURNING MIRE

ON A SHARP DESCEND
A LOST WEEKEND
FEAST A DAY IN HELL, JUST TO ESCAPE
AND AGAIN, WHAT A GOOD REASON FOR A STRAY SEASON
FIND RELIEF IN PURGATORY MY DEAR
FINALLY

WHEN YOUR VISION IS BLURRED
AND YOU STAND OUT OF THE HERD
YOU’RE DRIFTING ANYWHERE THE WIND BLOWS, BEYOND THE WORD
‘CAUSE YOUR MOM WENT BERSERK
FIND YOURSELF TRAPPED IN THE DIRT
HERE’S THE THING THAT LAST OCCURRED

ON A SHARP DESCEND
A LOST WEEKEND
FEAST A DAY IN HELL, JUST TO ESCAPE
AND AGAIN, WHAT A GOOD REASON FOR A STRAY SEASON
FIND RELIEF IN PURGATORY MY DEAR
FINALLY
