"Back of Your Heart" is a demo by Rivers Cuomo. The song originally demoed in consideration for what would eventually become Weezer's ninth album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End. The demo was released as part of the digital compilation Alone XI: The EWBAITE Years on November 20, 2020.

Overview

The main chorus of the song features a melody that was later used in the bridge for "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori". This same melody was reused for the song "Rest in Peace". This song also has the first known mention of BENGAY® in a Rivers Cuomo song since the 1991 track "Been Gi", co-written with Pat Wilson.

Lyrics

You pull a double reverse
I tried grabbing your shirt
The ball pops out to your friend
She slips it to the tight end
I'm running back and forth all through this game
You feel alive when you put me to shame

But in the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your, back of your, back of your heart
You're running away, you're running away
You're running away from me
Oh, but in the back of your heart
You still love me

Touchdown, another six points
I need some BENGAY® for my joints
The rookie is better than me
You don't look but I know that you see
I don't have you under contract no more
So why is your towel on the locker room floor?

'Cause in the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your, back of your, back of your heart
You're running away, you're running away
You're running away from me
Oh, but in the back of your heart
You still love me

I've been running laps, I've been running laps, I've been running laps
Got me running miles, got me running miles, got me running miles
But it's all in vain, yes it's all in vain, yes it's all in vain
There's no way to catch up to you
Unless you want me to...

But in the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your heart, whoa oh
In the back of your mind, whoa oh
In the back of your, back of your, back of your heart
You're running away, you're running away
You're running away from me
Oh, but in the back of your heart
You still love me
