"Stuff and Nonsense" as written by and Brian Timothy Finn....
Disobey my own decisions.
I deserve all your suspicion.
First it's yes and then it's no,
I dilly dally down to a duo.

But I got no secrets that I babble in my sleep.
I won't make promises to you that I can't keep.

And you know that I love you,
Here and now, not forever.
I can give you the present,
I don't know 'bout the future,
That's all stuff and nonsense.

I once lived for the future,
Every day was one day closer.
Greener on the other side,
This I believed before I met you.

I soon learned your love burned brighter than the stars in my eyes.
Now I know how and when
I know where and why.

And you know that I love you,
Here and now, not forever.
I can give you the present,
I don't know 'bout the future,
That's all stuff and nonsense.

    I like it because it's honest.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song, more so when Eddie Vedder sings it with Neil Finn. Eddie just adds so much to the song
