"Spell It Out" is a song written by Rivers Cuomo. Originally intended for Weezer's upcoming studio album OK Human, the song was ultimately removed from the album's track list.

Overview

The existence of the song was referenced on September 22, 2020 on Riverchat. Cuomo mentioned "big changes" were being made to OK Human and that planned songs were being cut, specifically the songs "Spell It Out" and "Everything Happens for a Reason" [1].

On October 9, Rivers sung a few verses of the song live on TikTok [2]. On October 12, when a fan asked about the song on the chat website Riverchat, Cuomo responded, "I think it'll be on the next next next album. It didn't come out that great on piano with an orchestra. It's more of an acoustic guitar song." [3]

How can I read your mind

When we're at different stages

I don't wanna be alone
I don't wanna be alone

I'm just trying to understand you, baby
You're just trying to understand me too
Tell me what you think we can do, baby
Breakin' up is really hard to do

Say what you want
Say what you need
Here in my [...]
So hard to breathe

Just spell it out slowly (oo-oooo)
Just spell it out slowly
