you and me

i don't usually post mush here, but there are just some songs that make my heart roll even with just a few beats.



what day is it
and in what month

this clock never seemed so alive


you barrel through my bubble, of course, unmindful of the shields i put up.

no matter how long or how far i wander, you're the one who could make me feel most alive.

I can't keep up
and I can't back down

I've been losing so much time


and i wonder sometimes, just what the hell am i doing
wasting time, goofing around
when i know, without a doubt, that when all is said and done,
all of me is yours.

cause it's you and me
and all of the people

with nothing to do
nothing to lose
and it's you and me
and all of the people

and I don't know why

I can't keep my eyes off of you


the world parades itself, and offers me the stars
but you've shown me something beyond all that.
and like the guy who once followed you

i ask,
to whom shall i go?

all of the things that I want to say
just aren't coming out right

I'm tripping inwards

you got my head spinning

I don't know where to go from here


and i stumble and wander

go my way and hurt you
but if i'll be honest with myself
it's me who i'm hurting

cause it's you and me
and all of the people

with nothing to do
nothing to prove
and it's you and me
and all of the people

and I don't know why

I can't keep my eyes off of you

because there's nothing in me that's not yours
amidst the world, despite myself,

i'm yours

there's something about you now
I
can't quite figure out

you want me to know you
but my eyes are weak yet
soon i'll go blind
and see you for the first time


you and me
and all of the people

with nothing to do
nothing to prove
and it's you and me
and all of the people

and I don't know why

I can't keep my eyes off of you


so it's just you and me,
just as it was
and how it will always be


what day is it
and in what month

this clock never seemed so alive

till then,
my God, with You, I am most alive.

waah! i so love that song! as in, i can play it over and over the whole day. i cried when it was used in one of the episodes in grey's nung season 2. kahit na hindi masyado bagay dun sa episode. hehehe.

btw, i successfully downloaded the first 3 episodes of season 3 in the office. updated na ko. yahoo! :D

i love the lyrics of this song. there's something about hearing it though that annoys me. maybe because i have a memory of some trying-hard celeb attempting to passionately sing this on one of them noontime shows.

my tearful song would be "unexpected song" from Song & Dance.
