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

I talked for hours to your wallet photograph
And you just listened
You laughed enchanted by my intellect
Or maybe you didn't
You remain, turned away
Turning further every day

Do you believe what I sing now?

    One of the best lyrics in a Weezer song.

    General Comment:Rivers said that No One Else is: "The jealous, obsessive asshole in me freaking out my girlfriend."
    and The World has Turned and Left me here is: "The same asshole wondering why she's gone."

    General Comment:I'm currently experiencing this now...the aftermath of a shocking break-up. "Wow. I'm exactly where I was right before I met them".

    General Comment:When I was in gr. 10, I was at an OAC party (gr 13's) and I put Blue on and put it on this song, and the guy that was having a party yelled out "Who put this song on?" and I thought he was mad, so I timidly said "I did..." to which he replied "Good job man, great cd and the best song on there!" Good times..
