Friends And Lovers (4:06)

Cover of If Not Now, When?

From If Not Now, When?

The Friends and Lovers Songfacts reports that guitarist Mike Einziger wrote this song when he was at university. Vocalist Brandon Boyd originally didn’t like the song, but Einziger developed it over a couple of years, and when he played it to him again he didn’t recognize it as being the same song.

    Horrible. This is the worst song on the new album. This is coming from someone who adores Incubus.

    If they all throw stones / Start a collection / Of everything we're not / And wont be, because / You should never have to defend / Being friends and lovers. -The best part of the song... everytime I listen to this song. Icould die lisening that part. <3 -
