"You And Me" as written by Jason Wade and Jude Cole....
What day is it
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up, and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

'Cause it's you and me
And all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me
And all the other people
And I don't know why
I can't keep my eyes off of you

Why are the things that I want to say
Just aren't coming out right?
I'm tripping on words
You got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

'Cause it's you and me
And all of the people people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me
And all other people
And I don't know why
I can't keep my eyes off of you

Something about you now
That I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

'Cause it's you and me
And all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all of the people
And I don't know why
I can't keep my eyes off of you and me
And all the other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all the other people
And I don't know why
I can't keep my eyes off of you

What day is it
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

    General CommentI LOVE this song!! The song's about a guy who's in love with a girl that he has know for quite a while. He wants to tell her how he feels about her but he keeps delaying it. In a room full of people, his eyes are always on her.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful...and very real. We've all had a time in our lives where we felt this way and this brings back a lot of memories of that. Pure, raw, in-the-flesh love.

    General CommentAND... I absolutely love the line ... "and I don't know why I can't keep my eyes off of you." because sometimes; we don't know, it just sort of happens that way and we can't explain it. Just another lovable mystery in life.

    General CommentThis song really means a lot to me. Cause I've been in love with my best friend for quite some time, but she really never expressed interest in me. At least not in the same way I did her. A bunch of her girlfriends were telling me to just wait...that she'd fall for me in time. So I waited 2 long years. And still nothing. She was dating some douchebag womanizer that always hurt her, yet she continued to date him.
    She found out a few months ago that her douchey boyfriend had been cheating on her and she got mad. He dumped her though. I went over to her house and she was crying. It hurt me to see her cry. I gave her a long hug and she ended up fallen asleep in my arms. It seemed like nothing could ruin that perfect moment.
    Later that night someone at our school was having a party. They played this song and all the happy couples got up to dance while her and I sat around feeling miserable because we didn't have anyone to dance with. Suddenly I got an idea.
    I stood up and asked her to dance. She said yes ad we went into the crowd where everyone was dancing, and time seemed to go on forever. It was almost as if it was just her and I dancing, and no one else was there.
    When the second chorus started I leaned down and kissed her...it was almost like a scene in a movie. She kissed me back, and it felt like there was nothing wrong in the world. Like all the darkness had faded to light. It was magical.
    When the song ended we sat back down, but this time sitting in one of two chairs. We cuddled for a while, and after a little bit, I asked her out.

    Now five months later we're a happy couple. She applied to a different college than I and got accepted. I got accepted to the other college...but I didn't want to leave her. So I applied to the college she applied to and got accepted. So now we'll be together in college as well.

    This is one of my favorite songs...it really expresses all the emotions you feel when you're in love.... Happiness. Fear. Strength. Weakness. All those emotions mixed together to create that special feeling.

    The feeling you never want to forget.

    General Commentfor some reason, when i hear this song, not only do i think of one person falling for another, but it sounds like a perfect song to play at the end of the year for senior slide shows and that kind of stuff. I can see people crying while looking at pictures of their friends with this song playing. hope that made sense.

    General Commentgenious!! this song is about how a guy is completely infatuated with a girl.so in love that he is mesmorised by her perfection and beauty. his fantisy that he is caught up in puts him and her in a bubble. no one else matters not all of the people around, nothing to prove. he can do nothing but stare at her. "what day is it
    and in what month " his head is filled with her he cant even figure out the day.

    General Commentbluemusiq7, thats an interesting but touching story.
    Anyways yes I do agree that this song is about a guy falling in love with this and that despite how much the world is against him or who he is with his focus is her. He is infatuated with her. I've never fallen in love and would like to get through a couple more years before I do. but when I hear this song it makes me cry. It's a good song to listen to but also it could easily become someones break up song....along time ago Ocean Avenue was mine. Anyways the song is beautiful. I wish guys at my school would hear this and learn that women are beautiful things. I wish guys would have more respect towards s. MTV and all the media has changed the way people think. It's devasting one might say. If there is one thing I wish is that everyone knew this song...It's beautiful and explains so much in approximetly 4 min.

    General CommentUmmm...I'm pretty sure it's "You and me, and all other people". Makes a lot more sense. He's saying there's us(Which is all that matters), and there's everyone else(Who he can't even notice because he's so in love.). I could be wrong, but it just seems to fit better.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song it gives me chills. it's like when jason wade was writing this song he new me or something. it's that kind of feeling you get when you're having a bad day and you're favorite song comes on the radio. this song just so happens to be that song that has cheered me up so many times. sometimes i still cry when i hear this song even though i've heard it so many times. the most inspirational lyrics of this song is " i don't know why, i can't keep my eyes off of you" . i guess this is my favorite because i can relate to it so much . oh my gosh listen to me i'm rambling. i'm starting to tear up just thinking about his song. this band's song are filled with so much emotion its the kind of music that makes you just want to think.

    i better shut up before i drowned in my own puddle of tears. lol. jason wade is an amazing songwriter. when life has me down he can always put me in a good mood. jason wade is literally my "LIFEHOUSE" !!

    LIFEHOUSE ROCKS!!
