Hymn For The Weekend Lyrics

Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (symphony)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (oh-ah-oh-ah)
(So high, so high)
Then we'll...

    I think the song basically tells about the man who feels happy that he has a awesome woman who always helps him out whenever he needs helps, just like an angel. The man also knows that without her love, his love is just nothing. Then, the word 'drunk' and 'high', in my opinion, represent about how the mans feels too much happy because of the woman.

    My interpretation of this song is that he feels really alone and is in a dark place before meeting her, she uplifts him and guides him towards the light. I think they met by fate; everything was being led to them meeting each other and they both needed each other; they were each other's missing piece. She helped him like no one ever could she led him towards light out of darkness.

    I think it's about meeting someone unexpectedly during a low point in your life and finding them uplifting you and motivating you to do better in life but also finding that they make you a better person in the process.

    I think they were just jamming while creating it. And simply explained that feelings in the first words came on their mind. Musicians do it a lot

    I think that "Life is a dream and loves a drug" refers to how this:
    A dream is a land where nothing is truly there right? Well how do you know that we are not in a dream. Thus our lives would be dreams. Loves a drug refers to how love makes you feel. High, happy, elated. So thus I think this song is about how this girls love came to rain a flood of happiness when he was dried up. (Tired, done, depressed.ectra) so this is obviously a love song!

    This is a deep song. The meaning of the "high" in this song is not about being high while using drugs. I believe the singer feels elated. He is in high spirits when he is with his lady. I think he feels that he can face any problems or storms in life knowing that he is loved and supported by his lady. He feels he can get or reach anything in life. Like what you said in the hit song by Jason Derulo, the "high" means a different thing too and not about drugs.

    This is the ONE song I have no clue about.
    The music video seems to be some kind of festival set in a foreign country, yet the song seems to be about a lady who is always there to help. Another thing that gets me is that one part of the song reads "Life is a drink and love's a drug.". It later states "You've got me feeling drunk and high. Most people would say this is a reference to the earlier statement of drink and drugs. I honestly agree, but others could argue that the "high" part could mean something different. I mean, in the hit song "Want To Want Me", one line is "Just the thought of you gets me so high" so the mention of "high" in Hymn For The Weekend could be entirely non-drug related at all, however, the song earlier mentions drugs, so it could mean either.


    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I love the song<3
    This song is about finding the ability to do awesome things together with someone whose impact in your life verges on the "angelic".
