Overview

The existence of "Hawaii" became known in October of 2020, when several demos of the song were listed on the in-progress demo storefront on riverscuomo.com, including several with "2019" in the filename, and one indicating that the track was in contention for the band's then-forthcoming album Van Weezer. On November 7, 2020, a Rivers Cuomo demo of "Hawaii" was among hundreds leaked online through riverscuomo.com. The song was repurposed for the 2015 demo "Since You Came Around."

Lyrics

You're so busy, you don't have the time
To relax your body, let your soul unwind
Let's take a breather and go lounge around
In a place where the ocean is the only sound

Hawaii, Hawaii
Playin' in the sand
Layin' in the sun
Hawaii, Hawaii
It's not that far away
So join me in the fun

Some bleak mornings you don't even eat
You go through the day feelin' hungry and weak
You're getting dark circles under your eyes
Let me treat you, baby, to the sweet surprise of

Hawaii, Hawaii
Playin' in the sand
Layin' in the sun
Hawaii, Hawaii
It's not that far away
So join me in the fun

In Waikiki they got so much free time
And when they're bored, they just open their minds
They fill the space with their own creations
I wanna have those realizations
So come with me, we'll ride the zip-line
Put on our fins and have a good time
It's not too chill, it's not too blazing
It's even nice when it's precipitating

Hawaii, Hawaii
Playin' in the sand
Layin' in the sun
Hawaii, Hawaii
It's not that far away
So take me by the hand

-ii, Hawaii
-ii, Hawaii
