Lyric of the Day: Lost Together – The Rembrandts

Share This

I’ve always been a fan of Danny Wilde and his best work was done with The Rembrandts, a pop band in the vein of Squeeze, the Finn Brothers and the Beatles. This is the title track from their fourth record and a sweet love song to boot.

Why I like these lyrics:

This is just a sweet love song actually written by the other half of the Rembrandts, Phil Solem. I like the mixing of sailing metaphors for finding love. This isn’t Shakespeare, but it somehow sums up the feeling of falling in love – a little confused, a little lost, completely happy and totally helpless.

Favorite Line:

You always said to listen to your heart
Maybe you were warning me

You always said to listen to your heart
Maybe you were warning me
All that I remember is your sirens call
And crashing on your beach

I was in pursuit of sunken treasure
Drifting so far off my course
I should’ve seen the red sky, in the morning light
And followed my true north

Somewhere we got lost together
And on this island, found each other
In a million years, if ever
I could never want another

Be careful what you think you’re wishing for
‘Cause you know it might come true
And happily ever after is an ending, only written for a fool
By a fool

Somewhere we got lost together
And on this island, found each other
In a million years, if ever
I could never want another

Stranded on this shore
Always wanting more
Than I could ever give to you

Somewhere we got lost together
And on this island, found each other
In a million years, if ever
I could never want another
