Perfect Situation Lyrics - Weezer

Review The Song (50)

What's the deal with my brain?
Why am I so obviously insane?
In a perfect situation
I lead love down the drain.
There's the pitch, slow and straight.
All I have to do is swing
and I'm a hero, but I'm a zero.

Hungry nights, once again
Now it's getting unbelievable.
'Cause I could not have it better,
But I just can't get no play
From the girls, all around
As they search the night for someone to hold onto.
And just pass through...

ooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhh oohh.
ooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhh oohh.

Get your hands off the girl,
Can't you see that she belongs to me?
And I don't appreciate this excess company.
Though I can't satisfy all the needs she has
And so she starts to wander...
Can you blame her?

oooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhh oohh.
oooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhh oohh.

Tell me there's a logic out there.
Leading me to better prepare
For the day that something really special might come.
Tell me there's some hope for me.
I don't wanna be lonely
For the rest of my days on the earth.


oooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhhhhhhhhh.
oooooooh oh. Ooohhhhh oh. oh Ooohhh Oohh.
oooooohoooooooo oowoahhooooooooooooooooo
oooooohoooooooo oowoahoooooooooooooooooo

ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo
ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo ooooowoahhhhoooooooooooo

actual meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/11

This song is about Rivers' vow of celibacy ("hungry nights"). He can't have it better because he is the lead singer of a band and could hook up with anyone, but he can't because he is celibate. Rivers' has said that he felt really lonely at that time and couldn't sleep. I think it means that he is hoping something good comes out of all this and that in the end someone special comes along.

Love this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/3/11

This song means sooooooo much to me. It describes the situation I've been in since I started looking. I listen to it 5 tine a day because finally someone indirectly tells me they know what it's like in the form of a rock song. Simply amazing.

Great song | Reviewer: Taylor | 8/12/11

I can't believe so many people get this song so wrong. Obviously Its abiut how he can't get the girls, not because they don't want him, but because he just doesn't have the courage "all I have to do IS swing, and I'm a hero. But I'm a zero"
So he just keeps getting high with his friends "hungry nights"
Abd then when he does get a girl he still lacks the confidence to keep her, and when she cheats on him he thinks there's no one to blame but himself

pretty much | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/10

i really like this guy. we did talk a few times. he is currently still single. but he is so hard to read. so i don't have the gut to tell him about my feelings. that's very stupid of me. this song really remind me of myself.

I'm a zero | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/24/10

I'm 15 and back about two months ago me and my friend were downtown playing guitar and singing some songs trying to make a little money but instead as we sat down to play at this one bench, within 30 seconds there was 20 people watching and then 30 then 40 and finaly I counted around 50 it was one of the most crazy moments in my life. But afterwards there were a whole bunch of people that wanted to take pictures with us.... Well so I thought, they just wanted to take pictures and get hugs from my friend they didn't even really care about me. My friend has a really good voice and he is pretty good looking but it is still hard to be just the guy that comes along. Even though I wrote a lot of the songs played guitar and sang, I just wasn't good enough

the truth | Reviewer: Dirty | 12/19/09

Its simply just someone calling out for help, the person needs guidance and a meaning to life. They feel lonely and depressed. The music video makes a lot of sense since Rivers is the boyfriend of the lead singer of weeze. He feels mainly happy that his girl gets the attention but sad since she is a drunk and he wants to leave. Then, when she leaves the band, after the solo Brian calls Rivers to sing. Everyone is firstly shocked but in the end are cheering and the bands name changes to Weezer since the first letter of Rivers is R

unbeatable | Reviewer: abhijeet sawhney | 11/27/09

perfect situation | Reviewer: warren | 11/17/09

you guys do know that this song is about erectile dysfunction, right? The lyrics make it sound like a sad love song but it's actually a huge metaphor for not being able to get it the'll make sense.

starlight.... | Reviewer: zero | 11/2/09

How can i swing when she doesn't want me to. she's afraid of getting hurt and i cannot allow that to happen... "I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain- G.N.R" i adore her way to much to hurt her and she knows that, but what can i do...
Lover Weezer, by the way....
