Lyrics

Us and We

Sometimes it seems that this whole town
Is a study in shades of grey
Can’t always see what led us here
Man on the street
He says, “Now where is hope?”
Is it down for the count or is this its last stop?
May he still be around whenever fortune knocks
What I heard him say is
Away with just you, away with just me
Let’s start talking more about us and we
‘Cause life is too short
Not to tell you what I want
Let’s start talking more about us and we

Cold winter time, we stay indoors
And try to pass the time
You in your room, and me in mine
Anything new might be a relief
Any change in the weather’s got me shaking like a leaf
The future still looks bright babe
But only if
We stop and take the time
Say away with just you
Away with just me
Let’s start talking more about us and we
‘Cause life is too short
And for what it’s worth
I’d like to see a bit more of us and we

Even gets lonely for a loner
Can’t share what she’s seen with anyone
Oh baby is it any wonder?
That the things that we say they're just scars on our tongue
When everybody’s all for one instead of one for everyone

Sometimes it seems we’re living in a world
Of mirrors and windows closed
How did we get so damn old?
I sure miss the feeling of an innocent sound
Running barefoot in the sun watching the rain falling down
It was so easy then – why not now?
What I want to say is
Away with just you, away with just me
Let’s start talking more about us and we
‘Cause life is too short, to spend it in this rut
Let’s start talking more about us and we
Away with just you, away with just me
Let’s start talking more about us and we
‘Cause life is too short, not to tell you what I want
Let’s start talking more about us and we
Let’s start talking more, let’s start talking more…
Let’s start talking more about us and we
