This song is part of the "All This Love" lineage of songs

"All This Love" is the sixth track from Weezer's 2022 EP, SZNZ: Spring.

Overview

Originally intended for SZNZ: Summer, "All This Love" was moved onto SZNZ: Spring relatively late in the production process. This was reportedly to make room on Summer for the song "Records".[1] The song's verse melody is appropriated from Rivers Cuomo's 2015 demo "Good Times." The chords of the song's bridge were written by Patrick Wilson in "I Don't Feel Enough,"[2] making it the first Cuomo-Wilson song writing credit to be featured on a formal Weezer release since 1994.

When asked about the song in an interview with NPR[3], Rivers Cuomo said of the song:

That song is all about just this incredible feeling of pent-up energy and wanting to express yourself and go out and be social and share your love. The chorus is really explosive and says, "I got all this love, I've been saving it, saving up, let me let it out." And it's just a really, really explosive feeling. In contrast, the first verse is [paraphrasing] "I've been stuck inside and I got this mask on my mouth, I forgot how to sing, I forgot how to love and live."

And on another level, thinking of how I've, at times, had this tendency to be too intellectual and not instinctual enough about art. There's a very obscure nod to the scientific way of creativity, a reference to Benjamin Franklin [in] the opening line, with "the key and a kite, waiting for lightning to strike camping out in the field by my house." So that's me thinking too hard about how to go about my creativity instead of just letting it flow.”
- Rivers Cuomo, NPR interview; March 18, 2022

Lyrics

With a key and a kite
Waiting for lightning to strike
Camping out in the field by my house
I forgot how to live
How to love, how to give
How to sing with a mask on my mouth

Now I won't be so precious about it
'Cause I-I-I-I, I-I-I-I

I got all this love that I've been saving up
I got all this love that I've been saving up
Let me let it out, let me let it out
I got all this love that I've been saving up

Through a hole in the wall
I could see one and all
And they all looked exactly like me
Now I know what I know
And I can't let it go
As the wind lifts me up by my wings

And I won't be so precious about it
'Cause I-I-I-I, I-I-I-I

I got all this love that I've been saving up
I got all this love that I've been saving up
Let me let it out, let me let it out
I got all this love that I've been saving up

Do-do-do-do

Let me let it out, let me let it out
I got all this love that I've been saving up

Waiting for a sign that I would be set free
Then I close my eyes and there I saw the key
I-I-I-I, I-I-I-I, I-I-I-I

I got all this love that I've been saving up
I got all this love that I've been saving up
Let me let it out, let me let it out
I got all this love that I've been saving up

Do-do-do-do
