Lyric Of The Day – Lostboy!

Lyric of the day

Song: Lostboy

Album: Lostboy! A.K.A Jim Kerr

Year of release: 2010

Words: Jim Kerr

This song makes me cry. I know it sounds silly, but it’s like he wrote a love song to his younger self! It’s beautiful and nostalgic. For a man who doesn’t like to dabble in nostalgia, he seems to get caught up in it quite a bit! Lol

There are subtley different lyrics printed on the album sleeve –

Never understand you with all those crazy plans,
You lost boy, lost boy.
You’d never try to please with all that energy,
Lost boy, lost boy.

But he DEFINITELY sings “always Julius Caesar” instead of “with all that energy”. It’s certainly more ambiguous – what the hell does he mean by THAT? He was a military man, feeling as though he was marshalling his troops? Beware the Ides of March, Jim? Maybe when he returns to FB, I’ll have to ask. Always love learning. At least I can try asking the man himself :-))
