  • The world has turned and left me here
    Just where I was before you appeared
    And in your place, an empty space
    Has filled the void behind my face

    I just made love with your sweet memory
    One thousand times in my head
    You said you loved it more than ever
    You said

    You remain, turned away
    Turning further every day

    The world has turned and left me here
    Just where I was before you appeared
    And in your place, an empty space
    Has filled the void behind my face

    I talked for hours to your wallet photograph
    And you just listened
    You laughed enchanted by intellect
    Or maybe you didn't

    You remain, turned away
    Turning further every day

    The world has turned and left me here
    Just where I was before you appeared
    And in your place, an empty space
    Has filled the void behind my fac

    You remain, turned away
    Turning further every day

    The world has turned and left me here
    Just where I was before you appeared
    And in your place, an empty space
    Has filled the void behind my face

    The world has turned and left me here
    Just where I was before you appeared
    And in your place, an empty space
    Has filled the void behind my face

  • Rocky from Tulsa, OkThis song touched me when I first heard it. I think it's about changes in life that you have difficulty accepting like a sputtering relationship, death, losing a job, moving to a new town, etc. My Dad bought Weezer's Blue Album when he was in college & then I was born & learned about Weezer's song thru my Dad's Weezer albums. Rivers Cuomo writess some pretty awesome songs. Sometimes Rivers trivializes some of his compositions & says they're just minor exercises in writing or "no big thing." But I find something worthwhile in every Weezer song! Something to relate to. Like this song.
  • Marcus from Jackson, MiThis song is awesome. A lot of people don't like it as much - its like my fave.
