"Out on the Weekend (Neil Young cover)" as written by and Conor Oberst Oberst....
Think I'll pack it in and buy a pick-up
Take it down to L.A.
Find a place to call my own and try to fix up
Start a brand new day
The woman I'm thinking of, she loved me all up
But I'm so down today
She's so fine, she's in my mind
I hear her calling
See the lonely boy, out on the weekend
Trying to make it pay
Can't relate to joy, he tries to speak and
Can't begin to say
She got pictures on the wall, they make me look up
From her big brass bed
Now I'm running down the road trying to stay up
Somewhere in her head
The woman I'm thinking of, she loved me all up
But I'm so down today
She's so fine, she's in my mind
I hear her calling
See the lonely boy, out on the weekend
Trying to make it pay
Can't relate to joy, he tries to speak and
Can't begin to say

    General CommentMy two musical heroes are Neil Young and Conor Oberst.
    Therefore, this song makes my heart just surge with absolute joy, to hear Conor sing this incredible, albeit simple, song. The meaning is obviously very clear, but I just love Conor to pieces for this cover. <3

    General CommentI think this one line sums it all up "..Can't relate to joy..". My favourite line in a song.
