Appearances

Overview

"I Do", along with "Always" is an unusual Green-era track by Weezer, in that it does not feature the full band on the recording. The song was written relatively late, while The Green Album was already in production, but did not appear on the final album. It was released as a b-side and as a bonus track on some international editions of Green, and was performed live at every show during the Yahoo! Outloud Tour, as the set's opening number.

Reception

While enjoyed by some, the song is sometimes derided for its similarity to the 1989 Billy Joel song "Leningrad".

Lyrics

All the times you came
I should've ran away

You told me that you'd always love me
You told me that you'd always love me

And the games you played
Were meant to lead me on

You told me that you'd always love me
You told me that you'd always love me
Always, oooh always
I do

You told me that you'd always love me
You told me that you'd always love me
Always, oooh always
I do

Never more again
Will I believe the sun
