A lost weekend, no beginning, no end Were you walking, was I running Is it here, or is it coming soon Thanks a lot Oh, I wish you well Friends or lovers, who can tell When the dust finally has settled Will I be left with roses or with nettles Oh, whatever happened on that lost weekend A lost weekend, no beginning, no end Are we the rust upon the metal Or the ghosts of folks who never settled down Thanks a lot Lost in heaven, lost in hell Only time will tell When the book finally is written Just our luck, the last page will be missing Oh, whatever happened on that lost weekend

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
