A Tale by Quincy Lyrics The Weeknd

It’s been quite clear to us for a long time that The Weeknd is a fan of a lot of popular music from the 70s and 80s. This he has explored very well in his previous works, but on Dawn FM he takes all of this to the next level because it explodes to such an extent that despite acknowledging all its influences –and has never denied them–, it can be seen that Tesfaye finally found “a sound of her own” taking as a reference a bit of the rhythm of all this time.

A Tale by Quincy Lyrics The Weeknd

That’s it
Looking back now, I didn’t know what it was supposed to be
And it’s like raising kids, man
If you weren’t raised, you don’t know how to raise, you know?
I just did the best that I could with them because
They know fuckin’ well I love them
But I didn’t do the best I could
I didn’t know what the fuck I was doing
I didn’t
I will never forget watching my mother get put in a straightjacket
And taken out of my home when I was only seven years old
She was diagnosed with Dementia praecox and put in a mental institution
Leaving my daddy alone with me and my little brother Lloyd
I latеr had an evil stepmother who furthеr cemented the idea that I didn’t need a mother
Growing up without one had long lasting influence I didn’t fully understand until much later in life
It bled into my relationships with family and those I had become romantically involved with
Whenever I got too close to a woman, I would cut her off
Part of that was vindictive and partially based on fear
But it was also totally subconscious
Looking back is a bitch, isn’t it?
