"Our Song" as written by Romy Anna Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and James Thomas Smith....
All I have, I will give to you
In dark times when no one wants to
I will give you me
And we'll be
Us

All I have, I will give to you
And at times when no one wants to
I will give you me
And we'll be
Us
And there's no one else

That knows me
Like you do
All I've done, you've done too
The walls I
Hide behind
You walk through
You just walk through

Well I know all the words
To take you apart
You know I know you're hurt
I want to mend your heart
You broke down
Why don't you tell me from the start
You know I know you're hurt
I want to mend your heart
And there's no one else

That knows me
Like you do
What I've done
You've done too
The walls I
Hide behind
You walk through
You just walk through

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about just being there for someone and really loving them. People aren't perfect and bad things happen. We may put up walls to protect ourselves, but with someone special you can get to each other like no one else can. This song portrays the comfort of really giving yourself to someone else and everything working so perfectly, being exactly what each other needs.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about knowing someone from the inside out, knowing when they are hurt and knowing exactly how to break through any barriers they may have to fix it. You've been with this person through thick and thin and that's the way it will always be. You and this person will never be apart, you will always be part of an us.

    General CommentRomy and Oliver have said this song is the only one they have done aimed at each other, as they have known each other since childhood and been through thick and thin together.

    MemoryThis song makes me melt. I do not understand how a single artist can have so many songs that I relate to so much. Yet so far, this one got me, and grabbed me tightly.

    "All I have, I will give to you"
    I gave her everything, my time, my love, my thoughts.

    "In dark times when no one wants to
    I will give you me"
    Nobody else kept her for so long, except for me.

    "And we'll be
    Us"
    We were so much alike, like a single soul in separate bodies.

    "And there's no one else
    That knows me
    Like you do"
    She knows all my greatness, all my faults. Every. Single. One of them.

    "All I've done, you've done too"
    Everything I caused her, good or bad, she did to me.

    "The walls I
    Hide behind
    You walk through
    You just walk through"
    I always opened up to her, and I said every single thing I felt, about everything. Yet she never opened up to me...

    "Well I know all the words
    To take you apart"
    I always had an option to take my anger out on her, to hurt her intentionally, yet no matter how badly I wanted to, I didn't, I couldn't... She could.

    "You know I know you're hurt
    I want to mend your heart"
    And when I did hurt her, it was constantly by mistake, and I'd apologize, but she wouldn't forgive me. I'd offer a fresh start, but she'd wait 'til I begged her for one.

    "You broke down
    Why don't you tell me from the start"
    And finally she broke down, from me breaking down and away from her. She kept it in, for it to all explode at once.
