"Now and Then" as written by and Randy/greenebaum Albright....
Now and then, sometimes when you're thinking
About when you were always drinking
And how friendships came in one evening
You loudly pretend connecting had some meaning

But now you don't, 'cause you can recall
Why you were possessed
To say something like,
"Come along with me and find a new direction, one that can't deceive us."
Like they first said on TV

And now you don't
'Cause you can

    General CommentOne of my favorite Built to Spill songs...an outtake from Keep it Like a Secret. I love how he phrases the line "how friend...ships came in one evening." Really worth seeking out -- such a beautiful song.
