Appearances

Overview

Rivers Cuomo recorded a demo of "So Low" to an Olympus handheld digital recorder[1] in 2001. The song was first recorded by Weezer at Sage and Sound Studios in the summer of 2001. During these sessions, an MP3 of the song was intended to be released on weezer.com, but a corrupted, 2.58kb file was uploaded by mistake. "So Low" was performed live by the band several times throughout 2001, notably at that summer's KROQ Inland Invasion festival and as Goat Punishment at the Knitting Factory for the show HBO Reverb.

"So Low" was later reworked into "Mansion of Cardboard" during the band's early demo sessions for their planned fifth album.

Lyrics

In your room
In your eyes
Silver spoon
Big surprise

In the darkest of days
I will love you some way
I need love
Babe, I need love

And I want you to know
So low

In your eyes
In your dreams
And the room
Drifts away

In the darkest of hours
I'll remain in your power
I need love
Babe, I need love

And I want you to
Take back the love you gave me, baby
Sometimes you drive me crazy, baby
This time I want to cry and be alone
Whoa, so low
