Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together


If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together
Imagine me and you
I do but I'm thinking too much
And I'm studying how they toss the dice
It had to be simpler back in the day when our folks were
Pretty certain they could find someone
Now none of it's assigned
We just want a date
Whether deaf or blind or dumb
I look at your number and wonder if I should
call you up
And invest a dime in a message with text that doesn't
belong to me but it would
Ease my mind to know if the songs I'm singin are
in a key you can comprehend
In tune with the thoughts you're pondering
If so we can both stop wondering if and
be together like Donner and Blitzen
But all reindeer games aside
It's like right when you came here, I came alive
It's like everything else was a glimpse of you
Giving hints and clues of where your name resides
Now that I've found you it's changed the vibe
Shattered through all the blame fear pain and pride
Doesn't matter who calls and invests a dime
They get a message saying we're staying inside
Cause I imagine, you and me could make music beautifully
Could make moves never lose the beat
I can imagine the food that we chose to eat
I see it all like a view from a movie seat
And imagine you and me
Never knew that we
Were never more than a few degrees
And how good it would prove to be
But the waiting is over I finally found you and..


I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together


Imagine me and you
And you and you me
No other way for we to be
Toss these dice eventually
These snake-eyes spell a tragedy
And I release unhappily
The magic now a fantasy
There’s another one for me than you
And some other one for you than me
And that's the way it has to be
An uncompleted masterpiece
Deleted canvas atrophy
Cut by another after me
A silent wound whose lips confess
Love's loss under Love's duress
A curse confessing hope
And then reverse the blessing emptiness
This on the whole wont coalesce
Regrets emote from hole in chest
As less remote emotions pull from
Cavities growing depths
I have it easy knowing this
Together we will never fit
So I'd rather bind my mind with rhymes
Than blind my eyes and sever it


I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together
We’re happy together
How is the weather?
So happy together


And I don't know and I can't think
And I'm so smote that I can't speak
And I look at the picture I have in my head and
I won't doze and I can't sleep
And it's so good that I'm locked down
And your quotes get put in my thoughts now
And there's nobody else to distract me
Cause you've got me on lockdown
And it can't stop and it won't stop
And we rock on leavin’ shows stopped
So thank you for comin’ goodnight everyone we're the Flobots...

    General CommentShout out to the turtles.

    This song is obviously about the concerns of finding love. The first verse talks about how people are worried about wether they will be able to find someone so they'll go on blind dates etc as long as they are giving themself some chance. the song seems to focus a lot on the fact that finding someone you love is a very chance based thing with lines such as "studying how they toss the dice". This is furthered when he says that they are only a few degrees apart. out of all the bilions of people in the world the right one just happened to be someone with mutual friends with him. He mentions that in the past marriage was more or less arranged so they never had to worry about finding someone. After a few lines talking about how in love he is, there is a sudden change. he starts to talk about how things didn't work out and they've both found other partners. their relationship is now nothing more than an "uncompleted masterpiece". He also makes a rational statement "So I'd rather bind my mind with rhymes
    Than blind my eyes and sever it" meaning that he would rather use music to alleviate his heartbreak than foolish bodily harm.

    General Commenti really love this song no matter what mood im in.. i agree completely with sparx1.. i cant believe more people haven't commented on this

    i think this is a great modern remake and the lyrics and music work great together. I agree with the message in this song that finding 'the one' is about chance. Also that dating has really changed from the way it was in the past. It's gotten less personal with text messages instead of romantic dates, or writing love letters- 'a text that doesnt belong to me' and going out with people just to have someone to be with- 'We just want a date, Whether deaf or blind or dumb'. Then just when you think you found the one something goes wrong 'Toss these dice eventually, These snake-eyes spell a tragedy, And I release unhappily, The magic now a fantasy, Theres another one for me than you, And some other one for you than me'

    Theres a lot of meanings in the song and it's all so honest and true. Basically dating is hard.. and is there really 'the one' out there? When your with someone you love it feels amazing and they are your everything, when it all dissolves it hurts like hell.
