"Here And Now" as written by Greg Mckenna, Kay Hanley and Brian Karp....
Just living on a Sunday morning, got my toast and tea and I'm warm and I
Just thought I'd think about. all the things to get and keep getting, never
Enough not enough and never ending. I just thought I'd think about. and it might be...

(the fast part)
The comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky above could
Never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the here and now.

Parody of yourself in color, giving it to everybody but your mother. you've got much to
Think about. soaring higher with every treason. never justify, never reason.
You've got much to think about. and it might be...
[the fast part again.]

    General CommentIt's got a nice moral...don't focus on "rising above the sky" or being important...just live for the moment. There's so much crap a person can think about or try to achieve but in the end its only going to keep you from having fun. Live in the here and now.

    Letters to Cleo was amazing. How is Kay Hanley's new band, Ladyapples? I haven't heard them.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a teenager who is just beginning to think about the meaning of life and living, and all that.
    I can definitely relate to "parody of yourself in color, giving it to everybody but your mother" - in other words, showing your vivid true self to everyone but your family.

    General Commentthere's a word missing...after the word "sky" should be the word "above" again. i submitted it, but just in case, b/c i know it's so hard to figure out!

    Memorymy old garage band, we never got our sound
    when we played out. we got lucky enough to
    open for letters to cleo. i remember when
    they did this! the singer blew me away with her intensity.

    great energy pulling off lyrics like this
    live, not in a studio situation. i was impressed.
