Pete Townshend — Now And Then lyrics

Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it

In you I saw someone that I recognized
Had no idea what was in your mind
I met your eyes and I was hypnotized
I let our lives become entwined

Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it

I feel so badly Darlin' all the time
I have tortured you so long
But I am helpless in this pantomime
I am aware that I was wrong

Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
(Can't do a thing about it)
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
(Can't do a thing about it)
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
(You can't do a thing about it)
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it

You can't do a thing about it

For though you knew that I was twice your age
To make you laugh seemed youth enough
I thought we'd love and then you'd turn the page
I'd have to suffer your rebuff

And it was me who had the most to gain
Despite the fact that I now have lost
The only love that ever caused me pain
I feel like a double head was tossed

Now and the you see a soul and you fall in love
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love

Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
And you can't do a thing about it
(You can't do a thing about it)
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it
(Can't do a thing about it)
Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
You can't do a thing about it

A call on Rastus' answering machine

Ruth: Rastus? It's Ruth. Uh, I've got something to show you. Look, it's a bit complicated. I've got Ray where I want him now - I'm gonna act. I'm gonna act soon. This is gonna be big, so you better be ready, ok? Um, but before I do anything else, we need to talk about my commission.
