"I Can Love" is a Weezer song written by Rivers Cuomo. Starting out as a late Album 5 Demo, it made it's way fairly far in the Make Believe recording sessions, before it was ultimately dropped. It was then released on Weezer (The Red Album) as an exclusive iTunes Pre-Order track.

History

Rehearsals

"I Can Love" was first attempted by the band as an acoustic office demo on September 7, 2003. It was then attempted once more acoustic before being recorded by the band several times. By the time the band began recording at Cello, the song was no longer being rehearsed.

Release

"I Can Love" was finally released as an iTunes pre-order bonus track (along with "It's Easy" from the same sessions) with Weezer's new Red Album on June 3, 2008. The released version is the acoustic office demo.

Lyrics

I didn't hope for much, I was used to how things were.
Even though I was not sure, You'd say I was throwing it all away.
And I never learned to heal.

I can't believe what I see. After all, this time it is meant to be.
Help me believe,
that I can love, I can love.

I guess it goes to show that you never should give up.
Even when you're out of luck you might find an angel in your sight.
Who turns everything around.

Help me believe what I see. After all this time it is meant to be.
Help me believe, believe, believe.

That I can love, I can love.
I can love, I can love.
