"367" is an Album 5 Demo with no given title. It is referred to only by its Catalog of Riffs number.



Three versions of this scrapped, pre-Make Believe demo exist, all recorded in 2002, and all released semi-officially via Weezer.com. Nearly all of the lyrics of the song are echoed by background vocals, sung by Brian Bell and Scott Shriner. The April 4 version is the longest of the three, lacks a guitar intro that the other two include, and includes some improvised banter prior to the song's beginning. The July 2 version includes new lyrics in the second refrain, and the addition of a piano, played by Shmedly, a studio pianist who worked with Weezer during these sessions. The July 16 version sees the omission of the piano.




The April 22 version does not include new lyrics on the second chorus, but repeats the first, and has 'flash' instead of 'hide' in the second verse.

Now that I love you so much
And it’s right there for all to see
Why don’t you let me hold you
And dream of the things that should not be?
Ah-ha ah-ha

You’re so damn intelligent, I can’t stand the way it hurts
‘Cause I’ll never be worth quite what you’re worth

I studied the words you wrote down
And picked them apart to check your style
And as I was doing all this
You'd never forget to [flash/hide] your smile
Ah-ha Ah-ha

I wonder if my heart will fade or if this is the one
‘Cause I don’t think I’ll find a better one

It all comes crashing down
When my secret flies
Back to loneliness
