Overview

On August 21, 2016, when someone posted the Jimmy Eat World song "Get Right" on the weezer fan club page, Rivers Cuomo commented "damn, one of my new songs is called 'get right.'"

In an October 2017 NPR interview Rivers commented on Josh Alexander's contribution to the song, noting that he came over to his house and helped "whip the verse melody into shape."

Lyrics

I've been spending time alone
Thinking 'bout the things that coulda' been
It's harder on my own
I didn't think it would turn out like this
I made a shrine with pictures of you
I tried and tried to get to the truth
But I'm afraid to look
When choosing one means losing all the rest

I know you're out there
Waiting for me there
But I don't know if I can get right
I know you're out there
Waiting for me there
But I don't know if I can get right

Raise your candle high
I would never turn my back on you
I'm your tiger burning bright
Even for just a day or two
There's something you should probably know
I hate to be the man in your phone
With alligator shoes
'Cause I really am in love with you

Singing to my dog
Keep your fingers crossed
Don't evaporate like a beautiful mirage

Why won't you tell me
I already know the answer
Why won't you tell me
It's over, it's over
