It's funny when you find yourself
Looking from the outside
I'm standing here
But all i want is to be over there
Why did i let myself believe
That Miracles could happen
Cause now i have to pretend
That i don't really care

I thought you were my fairytale
My dream when i'm not sleeping
A wish upon a star that's coming true
But everybody else could tell
That i confused my feelings with the truth
When there was me and you

I swore i knew the melody
That i heard you singing
And when you smiled
You made me feel
Like i could sing along
But then you went and changed the words

Now my heart is empty
I'm only left with used-to-be's
And once upon a song

Now i know you're not a fairytale
And dreams are meant for sleeping
Cause wishes on the star
Just don't come true
And now even i can tell
That i confused my feelings with the truth
Because i liked the view
When there was me and you

I can't believe that i could be so blind
It's like you were floating
When i was falling
And i didn't mind
Because i like the view
Oooh hoo hoo
I thought you felt it too
When there was me and you

    'when there was me and you' is a song about when you're trying to prove to yourself that you've moved on somehow, and that the past could be forgotten. It also means that when an incident occurs that could prove your love wrong, all could change. Even if the relationship was built for more than years, one wrong move could change everything :))

    For me, this song can relate so much to my life right now. The guy i'm with, we're not meant to be. I'm not supposed to be with him. But i we still go on loving each other. And lately, i realize that i shouldn't be taking this all seriously because, yeah, he is sweet to me, but not only to me, if you guys get it :>

    this song is so nice...,
    you fall inlove with someone but you know someday you will be apart...,
    you knew almost everyone is taliking about the two of you and you just didn't mind it until you realize that you are not supposed to do what you are doing...,
    then you make a decision that would hurt you but will make other people happy...,
