You and I Lyrics

 

You and I Song Lyrics


[FLORENCE]
This is an all too familiar scene
Life imperceptibly coming between
Those whose love is as strong as it could or should be.

[ANATOLY]
Nothing has altered --

[FLORENCE]
-- Yet everything's changed.

[ANATOLY]
No one stands still --

[BOTH]
Still I love you completely and hope I always will.

[ANATOLY]
Why do we need to put love into words?
Causing confusion
We protest, explain
Reassure, in vain
Come to no conclusion.

[FLORENCE]
I'd give the world to stay just as we are
It's better by far
Not to be too wise
Not to realize

[BOTH]
Where there's truth there will be lies.

[FLORENCE]
You and I --

[BOTH]
We've seen it all
Chasing our hearts' desire
But we go on believing
Nothing can harm us
This is forever.

[SVETLANA]
You knew better than me
Where your ambitions would take us
I knew sooner than you
That those ambitions would break us
You would not believe me
Why should you believe me?
I held you back
You and your dreams.

Who needs a dream?
Who needs ambition?
Who'd be the fool
In my position?
Year after year
I'm still denying
Anything's changed
Anything's dying.

But then --

[SVETLANA: & ANATOLY]
You and I
We've seen it all
Been down this road before.

[SVETLANA]
But I still go on pretending
Stories like ours
Have happy endings.
