"Cryin' and Lonely" is a Weezer demo written and recorded in 2000.

Overview

"Cryin' and Lonely" was, according to the Recording History, first demoed by the band in late October 2000. The song was featured on a 2000 demo tape submitted by the band to Interscope/Geffen in November in hopes of receiving approval for a third album[1]. The song was attempted again at S.I.R. Studios on December 26th, and subsequently attempted at Cello Studios before being abandoned.

In October of 2000, Karl Koch uploaded a short video to weezer.com showing the band practicing the song.

Lyrics

Teacher
Do it again
It’s a long and lonely road we have to end
Oh, sweetness
I like your style
But we have to walk along the country mile

And all the times we’d break up
The world would come to an end
I see the simple freedom in your eyes
But I won’t be there when you’re cryin’ and lonely tonight

Sweetness
Take off your clothes
And let me see the things in you that no one knows
I want to do it again
‘Cause I lost the only girl that was my friend
