"Fragments of Time (feat. Todd Edwards)" as written by Todd Edwards, Thomas Bangalter and Christo Guy Manuel Homem....
Driving this road down to paradise
Letting the sunlight into my eyes
Our only plan is to improvise
And it's crystal clear
That I don't ever want it to end
If I had my way I would never leave
Keep building these random memories
Turning our days into melodies
But since I can't stay

I'll just keep playing back
These fragments of time
Everywhere I go
These moments will shine

I'll just keep playing back
These fragments of time
Everywhere I go
These moments will shine

Familiar faces I've never seen
Living the gold and the silver dream
Making me feel like I'm seventeen
And it's crystal clear
That I don't ever want it to end
If I had my way I would never leave
Keep building these random memories
Turning our days into melodies
But since I can't stay

I'll just keep playing back
These fragments of time
Everywhere I go
These moments will shine

I'll just keep playing back
These fragments of time
Everywhere I go
These moments will shine

    General CommentThis song is sort-of "meta" in that it's about the three weeks Todd has spent in California, where some of RAM's recording sessions took place.

    "Driving this road down to paradise / Letting the sunlight into my eyes" - the road from Thomas' house, as described in the Collaborations video.

    "Our only plan is to improvise" - Daft Punk let Todd mess around with live-recorded samples. They didn't know what he'll make and he didn't know what the'll do with his work. Todd's work appears in the chorus, BTW.

    "Keep building these random memories" - partial title drop which also serves as a pun on constructing the album.

    "Turning our days into melodies" - yep.

    "I’ll just keep playing back / These fragments of time" - the use of recorded media as a metaphor for memories fits the theme of blurring the boundary between human and digital, just like the album title.

    "Familiar faces I've never seen / Living the gold and the silver dream" - he's an old friend of Daft Punk and they're known to always wear masks in public. This generation's masks are gold and silver-colored.

    However, despite what the song says, Edwards did stay. He has permanently moved from his native New Jersey to California.
