Appearances

Overview

Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson originally wrote, and may have even recorded, "Automatic" for his project The Special Goodness. According to Wilson, the song is about the tremendous love he feels for his family.

A live session version was broadcast on MTV prior to the album's release.

A remix of the song by LA Riots, taken from the video Gran Turismo 5, was heard in clip form prior to the album's release and later released in full online. It had a much faster beat, which caused fans to be surprised by the pace of the album version when it finally surfaced.

Lyrics

How am I going to
Deliver you a mountain size of love?
How do oceans connected by a straw
Get something through?

I might need some time to remember
Need some time to remember

Hey! It's automatic when you know it
Hey! It's automatic when you feel it

When do I lay down
And get to see the world inside your eyes?
How can I reach out
And hold on to the joy you've got inside?

Hey! It's automatic when you know it
Hey! It's automatic when you feel it

I got some
But I wanna feel it every hour
Cuz I want to give it to you

Hey! It's automatic when you know it
Hey! It's automatic when you feel it
