I can't say that you love me
So I cry and I'm hurting

Every time that I call you
You find some way to ditch me

So I'll learn to turn and look the other way

I'm so sad but I'll be strong
Because you can't bring me down

So I'll learn to turn and look the other way

    General CommentThis song was originally recorded as an instrumental, for those that are curious. I prefer the new version, I think the lyrics complement the guitar/drums very well.

    General Commenti haven't listened to the new one enough to take a liking to it, so i'll just say that the instrumental version rocks.

    General CommentI can't say i have ever heard the instrumental... but i absolutely love the new one... its awesome and has so much emotion in so little lyrics... its pretty extraordinary, but i guess you could just say, thats weezer.

    General CommentI can relate to this song so much, it's scary. I had this crush on this guy, for like a long time. He was a totally jackass though... "So I learned to turn/And look the other way".

    General CommentI LOVE this song.. It kicks ass and it kind of comes close to the pinkerton emotion, sincerity an honesty

    General CommentBoth versions are great, although I think the instrumental was a little bit better. But then, that is just me. The lyrics are not really the classic example of weezeresque poetry, but that really seems to add to the song. I would kill for the piano arrangement that Rivers Cuomo wrote. It is such a pretty song.
