Overview

Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo has suggested that "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" may be related to the song that precedes it on "The Blue Album," "No One Else." Cuomo stated that "No One Else" is about "the jealous-obsessive asshole in me freaking out on my girlfriend," while "'The World Has Turned and Left Me Here' is the same asshole wondering why she's gone." This is likely mere coincidence, given that "No One Else" was written several months or possibly over a year after "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here". The song had not been performed live by the band since the Blue Album tour until it was resurrected to be played as a part of the Memories tour.

Lyrics

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face

I just made love with your sweet memory
One thousand times in my head
You said you loved it more than ever
You said

You remain, turned away
Turning further every day

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face

I talked for hours to your wallet photograph
And you just listened
You laughed enchanted by my intellect
Or maybe you didn't

You remain, turned away
Turning further every day

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face

You remain, turned away
Turning further every day

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face

(Backup: Do you believe what I sing now? x3)
The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face

Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe?
