"This. Here and Now. With You" as written by Robert James Smith, Jason Toop Cooper, Simon Gallup and Porl Thompson....
This
Here and now
With you

Oh please don't ask me who I am
Or when and where my life began
Or why I ended up like this or how
Don't ask me what I was before
If I was anything at all
Its nothing you can know
About me now

You hold my spinning head to stare
And strip me bare of memory
Your black eyes burning into me
So slow
The sounds and lights and others fade
And fall away in symmetry
Your black eyes burning hungrily
And unafraid I know

[Chorus]
Everything I ever dared forget is here
Too scared before I never let
Tonight be all I need
Everywhere I never tried to get is here
Too tired before to ever let
Tonight be all I feel
Every time I ever thought regret is here
Too caught before I never let

Tonight be all I dream
There isn't any yesterday
Tomorrow starts a day away

This
Here and now
With you

I can't believe this is coming true I'm up so close to kissing you
A breathe away from never going home
I don't remember getting here
It seems to be sometime next year
I hope you wont be
Leaving me alone?

No please don't tell me who I am
Or when and where my life began
Or why I ended up like this or how
Don't ask me what I was before
If I was anything at all
Its nothing you can know
About me now

You pull my shaking body close
To make the most of tangency
I bite your mouth so fearfully
And slow
The taste of summers yet to shine
A perfect time to change the scene
I bite your mouth in urgency
And terrified I know

[Chorus]

Tonight be all I dream
There isn't any yesterday
Tomorrow starts a day away
This here and now with you is how
Always should always be

This
Here and now
With you

    General CommentEasily my favorite off the new album

    I think its a little more complex than just living in the moment, although I think thats the underlining theme. I belive it is about Someone relizing that Everything that they have ever done and everything they tried and expierenced hasent goten them anywhere. But then relize that you dont need much to be happy

    General CommentI agree that this song has an underlying theme about living in the moment. For me its about someone in a relationship that has been failing 'Everything I ever dared forget is here' due to the person perhaps being preoccupied with the future or other outside issues that whilst they love the person, they havn't allowed their heart to always be completely taken by the other person, so they have stepped cautiously: "Too scared before I never let Tonight be all I need" But when they learn to let go and live for the moment they realize that the past doesn't matter now and that they want to put everything in to the relationship and commit: "There isn't any yesterday Tomorrow starts a day away" and that they should be together forever: "This here and now with you is how Always should always be"

    Perhaps I have applied the song too much to my own personal situation but thats the beauty of lyrics, open to many interpretations. This is my favorite from this album it is beautiful.

    General CommentI think that this song is just about being scared about relationships.
    "I can't believe it's coming true, I'm so up close to kissing you", "Terrified I know", "why I ended up like this or how"
    I think my interpretation is this because I get really nervous around girls haha.
    Then it seems like the person gets over his fears in the chorus. I'm probably applying it to myself as well haha<3
