Overview

"Pacific Sunset" was originally written in contention for what would eventually become Weezer's ninth album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End. It was also demoed as a potential track for the following album (The White Album), alongside a variation titled "Spirit Animal". According to Rivers Cuomo, "Pacific Sunset" was demoed for the Weezer album OK Human. The song was possibly a contender for Weezer's forthcoming quartet of season-themed albums, though Cuomo confirmed on April 29, 2021 that the song was no longer in contention (but that he was interested in repurposing the song's bridge).[1]

On December 10, 2020, the project files for the song, for use with the music software Ableton, were made available as the first "Master Sessions" to be sold on the demo storefront on riverscuomo.com.

Lyrics

I was dragging my feet
I got home and fell right asleep
And my girl, she gave me a kiss
And I was just too tired to resist

Riding my bike over the path
Hardly a soul, Pacific sunset
Beautiful lights shine in the west
Chill in the air, Pacific sunset

They left the bodies under the pier
And made their troubles all disappear
So I know that this is my place
If I can only make an escape

Riding my bike over the path
Hardly a soul, Pacific sunset
Beautiful lights shine in the west
Chill in the air, Pacific sunset
Pacific sunset, Pacific sunset

Tearing me apart
Leave me in a daze
And I'd do anything
To taste the love you bring
There's only you, you, you
Only you, only you

Riding my bike over the path
Hardly a soul, Pacific sunset
Beautiful lights shine in the west
Chill in the air, Pacific sunset
Riding my bike over the path
Hardly a soul, Pacific sunset
Beautiful lights shine in the west
Chill in the air, Pacific sunset
Pacific sunset, Pacific sunset
