You and I (Remastered)

lyrics

it used to be so simple so sweet
i loved you and you loved me
dancing beneath the stars and the moon
we fell too fast; it was too soon
from bright shooting stars to blackened sky
how did we get here, you and i

through billowing clouds of tobacco smoke
we used to laugh, smile and joke
a place to which i cannot return
streets whose names i must unlearn
where fair-weather friends shout silent goodbyes
how did we get here, you and i

groom awaiting, bride debating
two heats anxiously anticipating
weighing the future against the past
we said forever but it didn’t last
right foot before the left, your hand in mine
how did we get here, you and i

no time for love; push pull shove me away
save me from myself today
two hearts set adrift on this sea of time
life without love is a song without rhyme
am i so different now, please tell me why
why didn’t we survive these changing tides
surrounded in secrets, steeped in lies
your constant hellos now a casual goodbye
forever was too long; tomorrow’s too late
i need a new heart that’ll bend but never break
god, help me relate to these hardened times
how did we get here, you and i

though i can’t change you, i can change me
perception is reality
and if what we perceive is what we believe
then truth is just a formality
sadly, i know what lives must die
but how did we get here, you and i
