In distant lands there's no such luxury
You'd give your hand in pre-arranged matrimony
You'd wear the veil, I'd sit in some cafe somewhere
Instead of this running around and this right to be free
So pleased with ourselves but there's one thing I've found
About you and me is

We can't live together but we can't stay apart
We can't live together but we can't stay apart

In all my dreams I've wanted someone like you
With no extremes we'd both do what we have to do
It's too easy and then it's too hard and passion gives us away
We know when to play the right cards
But we never know what to say

We can't live together but we can't stay apart
We can't live together but we can't stay apart

Why can't you be just more like me or me like you?
And why can't one and one just add up to two?

We can't, we can't live together but we can't stay apart
We can't live together but we can't stay apart
