"Here Today" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Tony Asher....
It starts with just a little glance now
Right away you're thinkin' 'bout romance now
You know you ought to take it slower
But you just can't wait to get to know her

A brand new love affair is such a beautiful thing
But if you're not careful think about the pain it can bring

It makes you feel so bad
It makes your heart feel sad
It makes your days go wrong
It makes your nights so long

You've got to keep in mind love is here today
And it's gone tomorrow
It's here and gone so fast

Right now you think that she's perfection
This time is really an exception
Well you know I hate to be a downer
But I'm the guy she left before you found her

Well I'm not saying you won't have a good love with her
But I keep on remembering things like they were

She made me feel so bad
She made my heart feel sad
She made my days go wrong
And made my nights so long

You've got to keep in mind love is here today
And it's gone tomorrow
It's here and gone so fast

Keep in mind love is here today
And it's gone tomorrow
It's here and gone so fast

Love is here today
And it's gone tomorrow
It's here and gone so fast

    General Commentthis song brings back days and loves gone by. There are girls in my past that I still think of today and how bad it hurt when they left.
    Everly time I hear the Beach Boys it takes me back to the early 70's when life was good.

    General CommentOh my god, this is weird, I've been talking to this girl lately, really trying hard to get with her, but this song kinda woke me up, you know? Like an epiphany. I think I'm gonna take it slower, yep, I officially live my life according to Beach Boys songs

    General CommentHoly crap I can't believe there aren't more comments on this one.. This song is so genius. Listen closely to it's composition, the brass instruments and the wide array of other instruments in the background. What an arrangement. I can just picture the studio full of like 50 people with different instruments and Brian Wilson obsessively working out their parts :P

    General CommentMusically, this is wonderful.

    Ooops, I'm stating the obvious. Hurrah for the best album ever made :)

    I do agree with the somewhat disenchanted lyrics about love. Love is here today and it's gone tomorrow.
