"High Up Above" is a Maladroit-era demo recorded by Weezer and released on the official website in 2001.

Overview

"High Up Above" made its debut during the BBC Sessions recorded for the Radio 1 show The Evening Session, presented by Steve Lamacq, on June 13th, 2001. The song was subsequently played during live shows throughout June and July of that year. These versions of the song feature an organ. However, when the song was demoed during the Maladroit sessions, the organ was scrapped in favor of a heavier guitar sound.

Lyrics

Tonight you're mine
Though your fair face I can't find
I need your love
Though you leave me far behind

I really miss your love
When you're high up above
And I am waiting here
Alone and by myself

Tonight you're free
And the experts will agree
When a girl is pure
There's no better place to be

I really miss your love
When you're high up above
And I am waiting here
Alone and by myself

Tonight you're free
And the experts will agree
Will agree
