You and me we had it all wrong
There was ice beneath our feet
But I refuse to understand it
And I refuse to believe

I know that I will be alone tonight
Even though you are by my side
You said this life is not what you planned it
But if this is a life at all
It is a life of crime

Now it's true I hardly know you
And you will always look for me
But there is nothing here to hold onto
Except the possibilities

How can I believe
You don't know
The words I hear you speak
You can't be sure
You say a soul is in me
Well if it's a soul you want
Then you can take the one I've got
Cause it's a life of crime

This life was made for something
But it wasn't you and I
We all were born from nothing
And we will never die

    Lyric CorrectionCouple corrections here. It should be "and I refuse *not* to believe," and for whatever reasons the entire fourth stanza ("When I was young") has been excluded. These are the correct lyrics, to my knowledge.

    You and me we had it all wrong
    There was ice beneath our feet
    But I refuse to understand it
    And I refuse not to believe

    I know that I will be alone tonight
    Even though you are by my side
    You said this life is not what you planned it
    But if this is a life at all
    It is a life of crime

    Now it's true I hardly know you
    And you will always look for me
    But there is nothing here to hold onto
    Except the possibilities

    When I was young
    I had a vision
    I saw the waves crash into the sky
    You said this life was made for the living
    But if this is a life at all
    It is a life of

    How can I believe
    You don't know
    The words I hear you speak
    You can't be sure
    You say a soul is in me
    Well if it's a soul you want
    Then you can take the one I've got
    Cause it's a life of crime

    This life was made for something
    But it wasn't you and I
    We all were born from nothing
    And we will never die
