Put Me Back Together by Weezer

Weezer singing to . . . um . . . children?

There's always been a layer of sadness behind the quirkiness of Rivers' music but in this song he lets the darkness come to the front.  This song is about gratitude and desperation all at the same time as he explains how much help he needs to be put back together.

There is something fascinating about watching Rivers Cuomo singing this emotionally draining and intimate song in front of children in a playground.  I am sure that the meaning of this song is lost on the children in the audience but he tries anyways.  It is this attempt that makes this song that much more powerful as sings to anyone who will listen to his pain.
