Now And Then

I knew that I was driving you crazy towards the end.
Too far gone as lovers, and I couldn't be your friend.
I still can hear that screen door slam, like it was yesterday.
I'm still tryin' to convince myself, we're better off this way.

Now and then, I wonder where you are.
Now and then, I see a shooting star as it's falling,
And I wonder, were you watching,
Now and then.

I guess my life's turned out OK, in fact I'm doin' real well.
I'm even makin' money, though I'm surprised at that myself!
And I truly hope you're doin' fine, maybe got some kids by now.
I just wish that they'd been mine, if we had worked it out.

Now and then....

I used to check, to see if you were still in the phone book.
But your name had disappeared, the last time that I looked.
I always thought we'd meet again, through some strange destiny.
But life is full of hopes and dreams, just not meant to be.

Now and then....

And I wonder, do you miss me,
Now and then?
