Back to Me and You Versus The World lyrics

Me And You Versus The World

I first met you hanging knickers on the line.
From that moment on.
I knew that there could only be one outcome.
Me and you against the world forever.
You had no folks and I'm just a joke.
But we made a vow.
That we would never sell each other out.
A lie detector wouldn't make me doubt you.

Now we know that it's us versus the world now.
Me and you against the world now.
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us.
Hey now, me and you against the world now
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us

We hitched a ride that would turn out suicide
I had my '45 replica gun.
I didn't think we'd ever need it.
Didn't know he had a real one loaded.
You went in first, took the worst.
Couldn't hear me shouting you.
To stop above the busy traffic passing by
We promised that together we would die.

Now we know that it's us versus the world now.
Me and you against the world now.
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us.
Hey now, me and you against the world now
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us

(Spoken)
I went in next
Took a bullet in the chest.
So I hit him with the only thing that was anywhere near me.
A tin of baked beans and a woman's weekly.
I grabbed the cash
Picked you up and made a dash.
Didn't get too far
Made it to the parking lot.
40 cops in front of us.
Guess who got shot...

(Resume singing)
Lying there dying in each others arms.
Oh you said to me.
Don't worry about a thing my little sweetheart.
We're together we shall never be apart.
You took a chance on a loser like me.
But you never let me down.
And whether we're in Heaven or Hell
I know it's better than separate cells.

Now we know that it's us versus the world now.
Me and you against the world now.
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us.
Hey now, me and you against the world now
Look up there in the sky now.
See those stars well they're shining just for us
