"Sweetness & Tenderness" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
I need to figure this out
And find where my place is
I don't mean to threaten anyone
No need to get so defensive
You say you're with me,
I know you don't care
You say you're with me,
I know you don't care
I guess it's real simple
It's just like when Gary Numan said
You're just a view
A cold and distant
You are just business
You're worthless
You're worthless
You say you're with me,
I know you don't care
I know you don't care
Sweetness
Oh, sweetness
I need some tenderness
Tenderness
You know it's just like Judas say
I've been your right hand man all along
My admiration for you hasn't died
I haven't forgotten how put down we are
I haven't forgotten how put down we are
You say you're with me,
I know you don't care
I know you don't care
Sweetness
Oh, sweetness
I need some tenderness
Tenderness
Come away with me
Come away with me
Sweetness
Come away with me
We can hide in peace
And we can finally rest
This melody's wrong,
And I do care
This melody's wrong,
Yes I care

    General Commentthe new version of this song, on the Last Little Life EP is fantastic.

    the last stanza says, "this melody's wrong, and i do care, this melody's wrong, yes i care"

    General CommentOh my goodness this song is SO about Rivers.

    It's like when rappers talk shit about each other in songs!

    Matt wins because everything Weezer did without him just sucks.

    BURRRN!

    it mentions a gary numan song from the pleasure principle. Dang.
