They build you up to watch you fall,
Tell you, you can do it all,
But they really wanna see you down in
The shadows.
Cos they can't ever learn to fly,
They don't wanna see you in the sky,
But they really wanna see you down in
The shadows.

[Pre Chorus]
(I know I know) they don't believe in us
(I know I know) we're meant to be
Because,
We both share our lives in the light

[Chorus]
And I Say...
They ain't never go'n get us [x4]

Tell me are these words familiar,
That man, he ain't good enough,
But they really wanna see you down in
The shadows.
They wont tell it to your face,
All you gotta do is fall from grace,
But they really wanna see you down in
The shadows.

[Pre Chorus]

I know I know they don't believe in us,
I know I know we're meant to be
Because,
We both Share our lives in the light.

[Chorus]

They don't know about the things we
Do, They don't understand it's just us
Two,
Why they always tryina intervene, They
Don't understand that it's our dream,
Well, to the left, to the left, we should
Tell them to get to the left,
Why they always tryina intervene, They
Don't understand that it's our dream...

[Chorus x2]
