[Nicky:]
Us against the world
Against the world
Us against the world
Against the world

[Shane:]
You and I, we’ve been at it so long
I still got the strongest fire
You and I, we still know how to talk
Know how to walk that wire

[Mark:]
Sometimes I feel like The world is against me
The sound of your voice, baby
That's what saves me
When we're together I feel so invincible

[Shane:]
Cause it's us against the world
You and me against them all
If you listen to these words
Know that we are standing tall
I don't ever see the day that
I won't catch you when you fall
Cause it's us against the world tonight

[Nicky:]
Us against the world
Against the world

[Mark:]
There’ll be days
We’ll be on different sides but
That doesn’t last too long
We find ways to get it on track
And know how to turn back on

[Shane:]
Sometimes I feel
I can’t keep it together
Then you hold me close
And you make it better
When I’m with you
I can feel so unbreakable

[Mark:]
Cause it's us against the world
You and me against them all
If you listen to these words
Know that we are standing tall
I don't ever see the day that
I won't catch you when you fall
Cause it's us against the world tonight

We’re not gonna break
Cause we both still believe
We know what we’ve got
And we’ve got what we need alright
We’re doing something right...

[Shane & Mark:]
Cause it's us against the world
You and me against them all
If you listen to these words
Know that we are standing tall
I don't ever see the day that
I won't catch you when you fall
Cause it's us against the world tonight

Us against the world
You and me against them all
If you listen to these words
Know that we are standing tall
I don't ever see the day that
I won't catch you when you fall
Us against the world
Yeah it’s Us against the world, baby
Us against the world
Tonight

[Nicky:]
Us against the world
Against the world
Us against the world

    This song means that we are not born to please everybody. So just be yourself and be who you want to be with. Don't go against your principles just to fit in. If they truly loves you, they would accept you no matter what. I love you westlife

    For me .. The meaning of this song is about two people .. What we call as couples .. This couple they think that the world dont want them to be happy cause they are not the one for each other .. But they still love each other and they not listening to the people who are trying to destroy their relationship !!

    I don't think this song is about a gay relationship. There are lots of reasons why people would be against their love, maybe their families hate each other (that sounds sooo Romeo n Juliet), or they have different beliefs (religions), or from different ranks (that's really classic) or just two people whose love for each other are unaccepted! There are THOUSANDS of reasons... don't narrow it down to homosexuality or something like that. Still, everyone's got their own opinions. Just plz be considerate and open your mind a bit wider and stop focusing on the wrong meanings.

    this is my fave song ever from these guys! i dont no y but thers something about the lyrics that just makes u go wow! even though it's based on a love story thing (eww) i think u could base it on friendship and that too. the lyrics dont say nothing bout love just that someone dont know what they'd do without that person after losing them before if ya get my words
