Wariner, Steve - The Weekend Lyrics

A couple of days, isn't a very long time.
Why can't I just walk away,
I used to be good at goodbye.
But out on the water,
Under the stars,
I let the moonlight play a trick on my heart.

You had some fun for the weekend.
But I'll be in love for the rest of my life.
You took me out to the deep end,
And I fell right over,
I didn't think twice.
I finally got something worth keepin'.
And if I can't have you tonight,
At least I had the weekend.

The radio plays, the sound of the waves rollin' in.
The smell of the night,
Sure can get under your skin.
Just for a moment,
I held you too close.
Now I'm all out of time, and I don't wanna let go.


How much can happen in a night or two?
I guess it's all depending on your point of view.

[Chorus x2]

    Have followed Steve's career since the early 1980's. His music has meant so much to my life! SO TALENTED!!! Never got the recognition he deserved. He has one of the great tenor voices in the country music business. Thanks for your music Steve! God Bless you & your family!

  12. SonnyBurnett1988

    I discovered this song in 2009 when I was 15, and I was just going out with my first girlfriend Annie. Gave me my first kiss and was the only ex-girlfriend I ever had who treated me right. This one's for you Annie VanWinkle. Thank you for 2 great weeks. I'll always love you 💕 9/4/2009-9/16/2009

    That's a very nice song Shirly

  42. knucklehead0202

    Steve wrote a lot of song for inexplicably more "popular" country artists that had great success throughout the 80s and 90s. Personally, i think he's better than most everyone of the era but i guess that's subjective....

  43. MWDarkAge

    If it wasn't for my ex-wife I never would've known about Steve... Besides my two beautiful children, she gave me Steve :-)

  44. Billy Greer

    Man they dnt make country music like this anymore! This was made just for the situation I’m in right now!

  73. jscountrygirl85

    This is one of Steve's most iconic songs along with "Small Town Girl," imo. Whenever I want to hear some good 80's country, I instantly go to those two songs or any of Steve's other classics from that decade. Love his smooth style!

  74. Cute Jungkook

    This song brings back memories of my grandma who past away in 2015 from cancer. She had the cd from his album, we’d listen to it in her car. She left so soon, the possibility’s were of her living up to 2 years. But she left in just two days. She passed on her birthday. I miss her very much :(
