'Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Instead of geeking out with a lot of hand-wringing analysis of tonight's "Lost" season-five premiere, allow me to simply post a song that may or may not have some meaning to fellow fans of the show, especially now ...

What did you think of tonight's premiere?
Do you think Hugo should've gone with Ben or thrown himself to the cops?
Comment below ...

Meanwhile, here's "Back to the Island," written by Leon Russell (a compatriot of Willie Nelson, whose "Shotgun Willie" was heard in the metaphorical opening scene of tonight's premiere) a long time ago. Here's hoping they use the song in a future show ...



Back To The Island (Digitally Remastered 95) - Leon Russell


And here are the lyrics ...


Now the day is gone and I sit alone and think of you, girl
What can I do without you in my life?
I guess that our guessing game just had to end that way
The hardest one to lose of all the games we played

But the time is past for living in a dream world
Lying to myself can't make that scene
Of wondering if you love me or just making a fool of me
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Chorus:
And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinking of you (yes, and I'll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Well all the fun has died, It's raining in my heart
I know down in my soul I'm really gonna miss you
But it had to end this way with all the games we played
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island
