You and me, were meant to be,
Walking free, in harmony,
One fine day, we'll fly away,
Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day,
Hey hey hey.

In this day and age it's so easy to stress,
'Cause people act strange and you can never second guess,
In order to love, child, we got to be strong,
I'm caught in the cross fire,
Why can't we get a long.

'Cause you and me, were meant to be,
Walking free, in harmony,
One fine day, we'll fly away,
Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day,
hey hey hey.

I'm having a day dream, we are getting somewhere,
I'm kissing your lips and running fingers through your hair,
I'm as nervous as you, bout making it right,
Well we know we were wrong, we can't give up the fight.
(oh no)

'Cause you and me, were meant to be,
Walking free, in harmony,
One fine day, we'll run away,
Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day,
Hey hey hey

You and me
Were meant to be
Walking free
In harmony
One fine day
We'll fly away
Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day

You and me (you and me)
