Appearances

Overview

"I Can't Find the Words" is a demo recorded by Rivers Cuomo in 2015. The song's bridge is repurposed from the demo "Real Life Friend". In November of 2020, in the weeks prior to the launch of the demo bundle storefront on riverscuomo.com, hundreds of MP3 filenames on Cuomo's computer were listed as dummy data on the then-unfinished web store. One such filename (I Can't Find The Words 2019-11-06 14.36.mp3) suggests that the song was revisited in 2019.

about this table

Lyrics

Sifting through the garbage mound
I wanna go back home, but the power is out
The concierge can't help me now
I'm lonely
Switching into airplane mode
Too afraid to ask for the bathroom code
Walking down this dusty road
I'm burning, I'm burning

I can't find the words
To tell you how I feel
But we don't have to talk about anything
I can't find the words
Or phrases fit for a queen
So I just want to look into your eyes

One notebook for everything
I don't wanna let down the family
Got to keep the name clean
I'm lonely, I'm lonely

I can't find the words
To tell you how I feel
So we don't have to talk about anything
I can't find the words
Or phrases fit for a queen
So I just want to look into your eyes

What I need is a real life friend
Someone natural and authentic
Can we both just let our guards down?
Can I show you?
Will you be my real life friend

I can't find the words
To tell you how I feel
But we don't have to talk about anything
I can't find the words
Or phrases fit for a queen
So I just want to look into your eyes
